Longer term, for future flights, you may be much better off going to a therapist/hypotherapist to work through this issue beforehand, I know one person who did this with great success, they have no issues with flying at all now. (this doesn't sound like a fear of flying issue to me, more a claustrophobia thing, otherwise a fear of flying course would have been my suggestion).
For this flight I suggest you see your doc and get some anti-anxiety medication, to attack the root cause, rather than sleeping pills, which as others have said, only tend to help when its the right time of day,and also are masking the symptoms, eg fine when you sleep, what happens when you wake up? Have you tried 'rescue remedy' ? Don't know if its available in Oz, it works for a few nervous travellers I know.
Anyway, hope you have a restful flight.
