For the past few weeks my sleeping pattern has completely gone down the drain. I'll usually go to sleep at 6am and wake up at around 5pm... I've tried to change it but every time I try to sleep at a reasonable time I get these really dark and distressing thoughts about death and the fact that everyone I know and love will die at some point in the future. Is there anyone else having this problem?

No, it's not just you, considering going to the doctor about it (for the tenth time).

Right, thanks (although I don't know what you mean by 'for the tenth time')

It'll be the tenth time I've gone to the doctor about it, hope I actually get medication this time instead of meaningless advice.

Ah, I see. I've heard melatonin is supposed to help but I haven't tried it yet

Oh my ex used that she said it was very good but only worked 50% of the time. May be more effective for you though.

I was in the same boat for months, finally got given amitriptyline a couple of weeks ago. Gone from not sleeping for days, to sleeping at least an hour every night.

The turning point in their decision was when I asked them for something to help me relax, rather than sleep. They are very reluctant to give sleeping meds, so the word ‘relax’ is a bit of a loophole

PRSOM, that's a very good shout. Thanks for that.

Yes, many people have been struggling with it in lockdown as our schedules in general are flipped upside down. I suggest you set yourself back into a routine and make sure your sticking with it, that seems to have helped a lot of people including myself.
If it becomes a real concern it might be worth talking to your GP about.
