Hi and welcome to Just Answer. This is not a site that provides prescriptions. It does sometimes appear that way due to advertising.

There are a few over the counter sleep medications that you could try that work very well. I am sorry about what you have been through. Two brands that you can look for in the UK are Sominex and Nytol. Both contain diphenhydramine.

If you need something stronger, you should contact your GP. An online physician service cannot provide that type of medication for you.

Best of luck.
