Cocaine Use for PTSD Sleep fear- can dr prescribe anything?

Hi there
I am a long term sufferer of severe OCD and ptsd. Ptsd is more tricks, although mostly at night.
I have an intense fear of laying down to sleep so much so that although I've been in unsuccessful therapy for years, I've been using cocaine to keep me awake until I literally crash into 2 deep needed hours sleep a night.

I'm concerned about this, but at least I know the reasons.
I get such intense fear as the draw up to night starts that I need to pee loads, feel irritable, scared and restless and light headed- cocaine is sadly only thing I've found that helps.

Was given diazepam for a week but it had the opposite effect on me.

Do you rekon there's anything a dr can prescribe me that will replace the cocaine type qualities that help me cope?

Forgive me for asking, but are you not getting these symptoms in part because you are addicted to the cocaine you know is coming?

You need to go and see a dr about this. flowers
