Medication Management for Insomnia
Psychotherapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, is the first-line treatment for insomnia. In some cases, patients may also require medications to aid relieving insomnia symptoms.
Sleep experts at MEDvidi can prescribe medications for severe insomnia online after a thorough evaluation of symptoms and health history.
The most common options include:

Benzodiazepines (Dalmane, Restoril, Doral, Halcion, Prosom) are FDA-approved for insomnia and are classified as Schedule IV controlled substances. They are usually used in short-term treatment because of the high risk for dependence and substance abuse.

Melatonin agonists for insomnia include melatonin (a dietary supplement, not under FDA regulations) and ramelteon (Rozerem)—an FDA-approved medication for onset insomnia.

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Unisom (doxylamine) can also be recommended for insomnia treatment. They do not require a prescription, but it’s important to consult a sleep specialist before use.

Nonbenzodiazepines (zolpidem (Ambien), zaleplon (Sonata), eszopiclone (Lunesta)) include sedative-hypnotics and CNS depressants, and as Schedule IV substances they require a prescription. They cause fewer side effects than benzodiazepines.

Orexin receptor antagonists (suvorexant (Belsomra), lemborexant (Dayvigo), daridorexant (Quviviq)) work on binding orexins regulating sleep-wake cycles.

Some antidepressants and antipsychotics can be used to manage the symptoms of anxiety and sleep deprivation. Common examples include mirtazapine (Remeron, Merck) and trazodone (Desyrel).

Insomnia Diagnostics: What’s Involved

Symptoms review
Healthcare providers use DSM-5 criteria to evaluate your symptoms and their impact on your well-being. You may be asked about your sleep habits, sleep-wake patterns, and external factors possibly impacting your sleep.
Sleep diary
You may be asked to note wake time and bedtime, caffeine intake, and other aspects during a few days to provide a clearer overview of your sleep patterns and issues.

Acute insomnia is a short-term sleep disorder that lasts from several days to one month. The main causes include stress from new life circumstances (jet lag from travel, a new job, work deadlines, exams, relationship issues), excessive light or noise, or physical discomfort during the day or at night.

Chronic insomnia is diagnosed if symptoms are noticed at least three nights a week for three months or longer.

Primary chronic insomnia occurs because of severe or recurrent concerns, worries, or stressors. It may last for years and worsen because of stress.

Secondary insomnia is caused by underlying medical conditions, such as asthma, allergies, chronic pain, diabetes, gastroesophageal reflux disease, heart disease, or mental health issues.
