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

The Best Medication for Insomnia: Ambien, Sonata, or Lunesta?

Thomas Goetz
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

These Drugs Could Increase Your Risk of Dementia

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

Natural Remedies for Insomnia: Do They Work?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Many folks turn to herbal remedies for the treatment of insomnia. Those who want to stay away from prescription medications like zolpidem (Ambien), eszopiclone (Lunesta) and zaleplon (Sonata) look around for natural over the counter remedies. Insomnia can be a sign of an underlying medical disorder, mood disorder (depression and anxiety), or a medication side effect, and sleep deprivation can lead to high blood pressure, impaired quality of life, and family dysfunction, among other things.

More Bad News for Ambien (Zolpidem)?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Zolpidem is the generic version of Ambien, which is also available in a longer acting form known as Ambien CR. These sleep medications (zolpidem, Sonata, Lunesta) are widely popular and known for their lack of hangover effect the next morning. These “atypical” benzodiazepines are different from “typical” benzodiazepines like Ativan, Xanax, or Valium in that they are used to treat insomnia but not anxiety. See More

What’s New for Insomnia

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Three to four times a day I talk to patients about it: insomnia is the most common sleep disorder, affecting millions worldwide. It is more common in women who have a lifetime risk 1.5 – 2 times higher than men. While this may seem obvious, insomnia is characterized by repeated difficulty with falling asleep, maintaining sleep or with a lack of quality of sleep despite adequate sleep opportunity.

Should I take medications for insomnia?
For short term sleep disruption the answer is likely no. See More

Prescription and Non-Prescription Remedies for Insomnia

Roni Shye
Roni Shye -

Insomnia is defined as “difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep” either over a short period of time or as a chronic problem. It is believed to affect 30 – 35% of adults and is common in the elderly. In some cases difficulty sleeping can be related to short-term stress (anxiety, worry, environment) that leads to sleep disturbances. In other cases, underlying medical conditions can cause chronic insomnia. See More

New Insomnia Drug: New or Revised Version of an Old Generic?

Dr. Sharon Orrange
Dr. Sharon Orrange -

Insomnia has a huge impact on people’s lives, with many relying on a medication for sleep. Sales of Ambien and Lunesta were over $3 billion in 2007. Ambien and Ambien CR then became available as generics (zolpidem and zolpidem er) so the hunt was on for new brand name insomnia medications, which are big money makers.

There is a new kid on the block for insomnia, but as it turns out it’s not so new. See More
