There are six factors that can induce sleeping problems.

1.  Diseases of the central nervous system in which the parts of the brain that participate in the regulation of sleep and awakening are damaged. This causes real insomnia but accounts for only a small percentage of ah people suffering from sleeping problems .

2.  Diseases of internal organs or peripheric nerves where pain or other unpleasant feelings disturb normal sleep. This can be anything from asthma symptoms (or anticipation of them) to muscle cramps, and can deprive you of sleep for a long time.

3. Neurotic disorders and functional disorders affecting the nervous system. Sufferers from emotional problem(including mood swings), people who are obsessed with  disease or those who have a tendency to worry unduly make up this group.

4.  Psychiatric diseases can affect sleep centres in the core of the brain, causing very unusual sleep patterns. Schizophrenics may be asleep or awake regardless of day or night, experiencing a sort of sleeping fit. Those who suffer from depression also need less sleep than others, despite the fact that they long for sleep as a means of forgetting their worries, at least for a while.

5.  Changes of environment such as changes in the weather, sleeping in a different place, entering a different time zone and new working shifts can cause temporary sleep problems.

6.  Drug abuse, whether medical or illegal.

    To avoid severe withdrawal symptoms, your healthcare provider may decide to wean you off Ativan slowly, though this may not be necessary in all situations.
    Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before stopping this drug. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you notice any bothersome symptoms after you are no longer taking it. Do not be afraid to ask your healthcare provider for help with withdrawing from Ativan, even if you have been abusing it or taking it without a prescription. Withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous.
