Full Text:


Insomnia is a sleep disorder which is common causes in adult women's mostly. In chronic insomnia, the patient feels difficulty in sleeping, uninterrupted sleep.1, 2Insomnia first time discovered by Johann Heinroth in 1818. It is the first psychosomatic disorder. Most of the study it is proved research adopt an arbitrary definition of insomnia as delay lower than 30 min sleep efficiency. The chronic insomnia is defined as difficulty in sleeping at least 3-4 nights in a week that repetition goes for at least 2-3 months3 or more that condition known as chronic insomnia condition.

Types of insomnia:

According to NSF various types of insomnias are there. They are comorbid insomnia, acute insomnia, chronic insomnia, maintenance insomnia and onset insomnia.

Acute insomnia: It happens often and they cure without any treatment procedures. It is considered as acute insomnia when the person is unable to sleep for a few weeks. Acute insomnia happens due to stress because of job loss, loss of loved one, jet lag and divorce. Sometimes surrounding things like a baby crying, noise, light and temperature may also be the causes of this condition.

Chronic insomnia: Difficulty in sleeping over a long period. The person feels very hard to falling in asleep or continuing the sleep without interruption throughout the night in a week not less than 3 months and more. Chronic insomnia cause due to having diseases like low back pain, sleep apnea, arthritis, depression, cancer, hypothyroidism, restless leg syndrome.

Co-Morbid insomnia: This sort of sleep deprivation happens due to some disease condition as psychiatric symptoms – anxiety and depression, cardiovascular, airway diseases, diabetes and cerebrovascular diseases.

Onset insomnia: This condition is characterized by difficulty in falling asleep at early sleeping at night.

Maintenance insomnia: This condition is described as difficulty in sleeping throughout the night. They wake up at any point of the night and have difficulty to sleep again.

Causes: Cold/ allergies, Parkinson’s diseases, GERD, low back pain, sleep apnea, arthritis, depression, cancer, hypothyroidism, restless leg syndrome. Antipsychotic medication, caffeine, nicotine and biological factors such as heightened cortisol, reduced Estrogen, progesterone.

Symptoms: Dissatisfaction in sleep, day time sleeping, low energy, early wakeup, concentration difficulties, inability to do regular work, unsatisfied in between relationship,  family,  friends and fatigue.

Insomnia risk factors: Affects mostly women, adults more than men and older adults.Chronic illness, mental health issues and working in time.


On an average, it is estimated that around 7-11% of the adult human population suffering from chronic insomnia which is often undertreated, under-diagnosed the condition of insomnia also increases as age passes which are most common in women’s this interface with normal functioning causes anxiety, depression, disturbance increase, poor cognitive functioning mood swings and mood changes. In chronic insomnia causes slow reactions times difficulty in balance maintaining, increase risk of mortality as it results in chronic insomnia misinterpreted as mild cognitive or dementia. Every four in one person with medical condition experience insomnia disease. When compared to males women’s are 1.4 times more chance to get affected by insomnia disease.About$100 billion amount is spending every year by the people’s in united states for the treatment of insomnia. Insomnia affects concentration, productivity, disability to do regular work and increases the healthcare cost of the individual who is chronically affected by insomnia. According to the 2002 NSF poll, 63 % of women experience symptoms of insomnia for a few nights per week. 4,5 Adults (68%) are more affected when compared to adult ages (59%). Surprisingly parents not having children in their household reported insomnia more when compared to parents those are having children (66 vs 54).


One of the studies claimed and it is found that remission rate 13.1% after 4 months. Follow up in Population suffering from insomnia for 1 month or more than that.6


Chronic insomnia is a disorder distinguished by lack of sleep and the uneasiness of falling asleep, recurrent of awakening in sleep. Chronic Insomnia has impacted 6-10% of the total adult population. Due to lack of generality, the symptoms are underrated by various age groups. Women’s are mainly affected by this and it increases as age rises. This also has a rapid rate of showing up in people who suffer from diabetes. Chronic insomnia intervenes with the development of body and various systems; it convicts anxiety, emotional disorder, drowsiness, retarded psychological health. The hyperarousal creates by disturbed mind causes a higher level of cortisol and adrenocorticotropic hormone indicates towards thronging insomnia.


Evaluation of a patient with Insomnia

The assessment of insomnia can be augmented by a prototype that allows for the progression of insomnia disorder.A comprehensive history retrieved during the patient interview is the linchpin of the assessment of insomnia. Whereas the interview approach may vary in consonance with the practitioner, the core should be covered to ensure an accurate evaluation. The primary objective of the evaluation process is to identify comorbid disorders that can be directly controlled. Evaluation pursues to be based on a cautious history and examination of patients dealing with sleep and waking functions, as well as prevalent medical, psychiatric, and comorbidities linked to medication/substances.

Sleep History

Components of an Insomnia intake history

1. Principal complaints of insomnia or sleep pattern

Insomnia patients may complain of sleeping difficulties, recurrent awakenings, struggling to get back to sleep, early morning awakenings, or sleep that fails to feel calm, reviving, or remedial.

Key elements include:

  1. Distinguish of the type of ailments

  2. Frequency (occurrence per night)

  3. The severity of night discomfort and daytime symptoms

  4. Factors that fluctuate symptoms

  5. Recognition of precipitants

  6. Perpetuating factors

  7. Duration (months, years, lifetime)

  8. Treatments and responses

  9. Course (progressive, irregular, persistent)

  1. Pre-sleep conditions with behavioural factors

  • Classification of the sleeping status 

  • The psychological state of the patient (drowsy /conscious, easy/uneasy) is useful in grasping which factors may ease or endure sleep or awakening after sleep.

  1. Sleep-wake schedule

  • The sleep schedule should be reviewed to comprise sack time, sleep inactivity, frequency, and duration of night time arouse, sleep re-initiation time, wake time, bedtime, and entire sleep time.

  • The ability of the patient to fall asleep can be impeded by the consuming and work up times in close temporal link with bedtime. Collateral reports from relatives, teachers, or companions may evince valuable if the patient is heedless of the extent of symptoms.

  1. Nocturnal symptoms

         To point out nocturnal signs associated with:

  • Breathing anomalies (sleep apnea)

  • REM sleep behaviour disorder (kick­ing, punching, shouting)

  • Parasomnias (abnormal movements, emotions)

  • Neurological disorders/comorbid conditions (palpitations, epilepsy, headaches).

  • Other Psychological emotions associated with wakefulness (restlessness, anxiety, frustration) may impart to insomnia.

  1. Day time activities and day time functions

          Daytime activities and behaviours can give clues about possible provocation and the                                  outcome of insomnia such as 

  • Nod off (frequency per day, time)

  • work (working hours, type of work)

  • Lifestyle (inactive/active, shut-in, daytime exposure, exercise)

  • travel, daytime dysfunction (cognitive dysfunction, mood, quality of life)7

  1.      Evaluation of Comorbid conditions

·       A major part of the patient interview should be aimed at the assessment of medical conditions, mental conditions, and other sleep disorders often comorbid with insomnia. 8

  1.         Current or past treatment response

  • Over-the-counter medication approaches, alcohol, and prescription drugs must be included in the assessment of current and past treatments.

  • The type, dosage, use frequency, administration time, a typical response must be evaluated

  • It is also important to assess the acceptance of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies by the patient since these perspectives are likely to impact adherence to guidance and yield treatment outcomes.8

  1. Examination by physically and mentally

  • Physical examination may disclose signs compatible with sleep apnea, respiratory, thyroid, cardiac, and neurological disorders. 9,10

  • The mental examination may give details concerning the effect, mood, level of observant, and ability of the patient to attend.10

Objective Assessment Tools 

In the evaluation of insomnia, laboratory testing, polysomnography, and actigraphy are not regularly suggested and be suitable for individuals with certain comorbid conditions/ sleep disorders.

  • Sleep Diaries

Subjective sleep diaries are often used to aid for insomnia assessment in clinical settings and outcome measures in insomnia treatment. It can help to track a patient's sleep-wake routines recorded over 1 to 2 weeks. Information can be collected from the diaries including sleep-wake times, the time duration in bed, and frequency in sleep-wake times.

  • Polysomnography

Polysomnography is not used commonly to assess insomnia; instead, it is the patient interview that is responsible for the diagnosis. It is only used to exclude the sleep existence disorderly breathing or PLMS condition.

  • Actigraphy

The actigraph is an actimetry worn on the wrist of the patient. They can measure gross motor activity for 2 weeks and record rest or activity conditions. Some advanced actigraphs can fetch information such as light exposure or patient self-reporting data. The patient is presumed to be asleep when there is no movement. The data collected from the device by connecting to a computer and downloads from the actigraph, performs an asleep and wake evaluation algorithm, and presents data in numerically and graphically.

  • Multiple sleep latency test

It is the evaluation tool for measuring excessive daytime sleepiness. It is the standard tool for diagnosis in narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnia.

  • Neurobehavioral testing

The neurobehavioral and cognitive test is used to compute insomnia-associated daytime impairment. Many have found no daytime deficits objectively measured. They have to consider sensitivity and specificity when tests conducted for the daytime insomnia.13


The incidence of sleep disturbance and the degree to which insomnia remarkably affects daytime activities decide the requirement for assessment and treatment. For acute stress disorder patients, physicians begin treatment for insomnia at the initial visit where no further assessment may be needed. However, if insomnia is severe or chronic, a detailed examination is required to detect comorbidities and associated condition, psychiatric or neurologic disorder. Treatment should initiate with nonpharmacologic treatment followed by pharmacologic treatment, in case of no improvement. 14

Non-Pharmacological Treatment:

  1. Sleep hygiene

It incorporates educating the patients about lifestyle modifications like wellbeing practices (substance abuse, diet, and exercise) and environmental factors (light, sound, and temperature). 15Assess sleep hygiene with the help of specific practice scales like sleep hygiene index and awareness scales. But sleep hygiene counselling alone might be unproductive in managing chronic insomnia patients and should be utilised with different aspects of cognitive behaviour therapy. 16

  1. Stimulus control therapy

It helps to initiate a regular sleep-wake cycle and involves the restriction of maladaptive behaviour like late-night use of digital devices, reading or eating on the bed. 15Recommendations include limit the utilisation of the bedroom to sleep and lovemaking and leave the room if unable to sleep in 20 minutes.

  1. Temporal control measures

It involves a consistent time of wakening ignoring the sleep duration and avoids sleeping during the day. 17The technique involves “early to bed and early to rise, makes a person healthy, wealthy, and wise”.

  1. Sleep Restriction therapy

It is useful for patients who invest a significant amount of time in bed attempting to fall asleep, which initially restrains the time in bed to the total sleep time (TST). Thereby, it aims to improve sleep progression by utilising sleep limitation to build a sleep drive. 18The major limitation of this therapy is excessive daytime sleepiness.

  1. Relaxation therapies

Relaxation therapies include various activities such as

  1. Autogenic training: Self-directed relaxation training by encouraging body recognitions such as warmth and heaviness of the limbs.

  2. Imagery training: Practice of generating pleasant images in mind, which helps in relaxation and stress reduction, thereby leads to good sleep.

  3. Progressive muscle relaxation: It involves straining and loosening up of various muscle groups to reduce stress and anxiety.

  4. Visual or auditory biofeedback training: It trains the patient to control certain physiologic factors like breathing, heart rate and brain activities using visual and auditory feedback to enhance from stress, anxiety and related insomnia. 15,17

  5. Breathing exercise, meditation or yoga: Mindfulness-based therapy for insomnia (MBTI) is a meditation-based initiative that helps in emotion regulation and stress reduction. 19

  1. Paradoxical intention therapy

The therapy advises the patient to stay awake to reduce the anxiety associated with the strain to sleep. 18

  1. Cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) includes various components of intervention such as behavioural (sleep hygiene, stimulus control, relaxation, and sleep limitation) and psychological approaches (e.g., psychological rebuilding). 20It helps to alter false deceptions and mentalities about sleep, for example, unreasonable desires, confusions, enhancing outcomes of restlessness. The methods comprise of reattribution training (objective setting and arranging adapting reactions), decatastrophizing (planned for adjusting anxious programmed thoughts), assessment, and shifting attention. 14Effective CBT-I can show remarkable advancement in sleep onset latency (SOL), wakefulness after sleep onset (WASO) and total sleep time (TST). 16

  1. Exercise

 Excess activity and exercise training help in improving the quality of sleep by significantly reducing depression and anxiety. But, avoid exercise before bedtime.21


Pharmacological Management of Insomnia:

Pharmacological therapy can be beneficial for short-term relief of insomnia but may not be efficient for long-term use.

  1. Drugs Acting on GABA-A Receptors

Both Benzodiazepines (BZD) and benzodiazepine receptor agonists (BzRA or non-BZD) act on the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor sites which exert anxiolytic, muscle relaxant, sedative, and hypnotic effects hence, for quite some time been acknowledged as one of the significant treatment options for insomnia. Nonetheless, certain limitations are related to long-term utilisation of such hypnotics which include the risk of tolerance and dependence. Therefore, it is recommended that BZDs should just be utilised for a brief time of about a month to prevent the incidence of the drawbacks related to long-term use

BzRA is approved by the Food and drug administration (FDA) for the treatment of insomnia.23 Compared to benzodiazepines, they are rapidly absorbed, relatively short-acting and have fewer side effects. These are useful in treating sleep maintenance insomnia, sleep onset insomnia or both.

  1. Zolpidem

It binds specifically to the alpha-one subtype of GABA-A receptor. They exhibit hypnotic effects with negligible myorelaxant, anxiolytic, and anticonvulsant properties. It shows action by decreasing sleep dormancy and night-time awakenings and increases total sleep time. The side effects include falls, somnolence, headache, and antegrade amnesia.

  1. Zaleplon

Zaleplon is almost similar to Zolpidem but has the shortest span of action with a half-life of an hour. It reduces sleep latency but does not reduce nocturnal awakenings or increase total sleep time. The adverse effects include drowsiness, headache, nausea, and worsening of depression symptoms in patients associated with comorbid depressive disorder.


  1. Eszopiclone

Eszopiclone is an isomer of zopiclone and is approved by the FDA for longer use. It aids to increase sleep productivity, daytime working alongside a decrease in sleep onset latency and wakefulness after sleep onset. The commonly observed side effects include unpleasant taste, headache, somnolence, and dizziness.

  1. Drugs Acting on Melatonin Receptors:

The pineal gland produces a natural hormone called melatonin. The circadian system in the hypothalamus and the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) regulates the levels of this hormone throughout the day and night. Melatonin is available over the counter and is approved by FDA for treatment of insomnia, especially in older adults.

  1. Ramelteon:

It is a melatonin receptor agonist which decreases the sleep latency by acting on the melatonin MT1 and MT2 receptors in the SCN with higher affinity than melatonin itself. It exerts minimal adverse effects, including somnolence, fatigue, and dizziness. It should be advised with caution in pregnancy and is contraindicated in severe hepatic impairment.
