Abstract

Many patients with insomnia describe their sleep problems as an inability to remain asleep throughout the night, resulting in next-day fatigue that may adversely affect daytime functioning. To be most effective, insomnia treatment should be tailored to resolving underlying causes of the condition and managing specific sleep complaints. Therefore, hypnotic therapy administered prior to bedtime, as is currently recommended for most compounds, is not appropriate for all insomnia patients. Ideally, behavioral interventionsshould be combined with a rapid-acting agent that can be administered at virtually any time during the night without producing residual effects the following day. Zaleplon, a new nonbenzodiazepine sleep medication, provides the clinician with an effective and safe pharmacotherapeutic option for insomnia management. Its rapid rates of absorption and elimination allow for treatment of symptoms when they occur, either at bedtime or later at night, without incurring significant risk for the development of next-day impairment of psychomotor and cognitive functioning.
