Nothing, I may take the opportunity to think some things through which gets stuff done when I can't access the stuff to get it done; I'll generally wake up shattered, the day after.
When I was on a med, which screwed with my CNS, not only did I not sleep but I wanted to rip my skin off, climb the walls, and could not lay still, so I got up and watched tv...I had 4 days and nights of that and was exhausted; stopped the med, slept like a baby. Turned out I'm allergic to the med in question.
Sometimes, sleeplessness is related to something else, which could be something on your mind, too much food (sugar/carbs)/caffeine prior to bed, waatching tv (exciting the nervous system), pushing through a previous wave of tiredness which will lead to you waking up again, not doing enough to tire yourself out during the day, or a med etc; if you manage to rule all of those things out, then you'll just need to keep an eye on things t make sure it doesn't end up a longterm thing...nip it in the bud early, if it looks to be going that way.
