Treating Insomnia: Which Sleeping Pill Is Right for You?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

You may have read about the dangers of Ambien (zolpidem) or why you should stay away from habit-forming sleeping pills like Valium (diazepam) and wondered, what can I take for sleep? Fortunately, there are many options for the short-term treatment of insomnia. Here’s how to choose the right one for you.

What are my options?

Medications commonly used to treat insomnia include benzodiazepines (Ativan, Valium, Klonopin, Restoril), atypical benzodiazepines (Ambien, Sonata, Lunesta), melatonin agonists (Rozerem), antidepressants (Silenor, amitriptyline, trazodone) and our newest one, Belsomra. See More

Thomas Goetz -

These days, insomnia is pretty much part of the national condition. Every evening, millions of Americans use a prescription drug to help them get to sleep and stay asleep – usually a generic version of Ambien (sold under the generic name zolpidem), Sonata (zaleplon), or Lunesta (eszopiclone).   

These three medications are all so-called “z-drugs”: Non-benzodiazepines that calm the brain and induce sleep by inducing a sort of hypnotic effect. See More

If you’ve got health insurance, now’s a good time to be paying attention. Each year, prescription coverage – the “formulary” – changes, and yours will likely be changing in 2018.

There is a silver lining for some of you though—almost 20 currently excluded drugs will be covered in 2018. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

When asked about the medical conditions they fear the most, adults overwhelmingly answer dementia, specifically Alzheimers dementia. Treatment options for dementia are dismal, so the focus needs to be on prevention. Many risk factors for dementia are things you can control: diabetes, high blood pressure, physical inactivity and even some medications.

Multiple studies have found an association between the use of certain medication classes with dementia and cognitive (thinking, understanding, learning, remembering) impairment in older adults. See More

Ambien vs Sonata: Which Z Drug Is Better?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

The generic versions of Ambien and Sonata (zolpidem and zaleplon) have dominated the market for insomnia medications. Zolpidem is available as a 5 or 10 mg tablet and Zaleplon 5, 10, or 20 mg tablets. If your insurance company covers one and not the other, how easy is it to change? How do the Z drugs compare?

How do zolpidem and zaleplon work?

Both are “atypical benzos” that have a high affinity for alpha 1 GABA receptors. See More
