Insomnia is a very common complaint among older adults. This condition affects more than 70 million Americans. Some of the symptoms include difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, difficulty getting up in the morning, or not feeling rested with a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, insomnia lasts for a short time and can be easily managed. Other times it is a chronic condition, lasting more than six months. Chronic insomnia is more troublesome and can affect work, social relationships, and health. Many people with insomnia are also diagnosed with other conditions such as depression, anxiety, allergies, or pain.
Treatment of insomnia begins with what is known as sleep hygiene. This includes regular sleep and wake times. You should avoid eating, drinking, or exercising before bed. The room should be cool, comfortable, and dark.
Sleep Hygiene Philosophy
1. keep a regular sleep schedule
2. Exercise regularly but avoid exercising before bed
3. go to sleep when sleepy
4. Do relaxing and fun activities before bed
5. Keep the bedroom quiet and comfortable
6. Don’t have a big dinner
7. If you don’t sleep within 20 minutes, get up and go back to bed when you are sleepy
8. If you have to take a nap, limit it to a maximum of 30 minutes
9. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine
10. Have your pharmacist check your medication for stimulants
If sleep hygiene methods don’t work, I may need to start taking medication.
If you are still having trouble getting a good night’s sleep, you should talk to your pharmacist or doctor. The cause of your insomnia needs to be determined and you may need medication to help you sleep. Even if medication is used for insomnia, sleep hygiene principles should still be followed and may provide additional benefits. The best medicine should act quickly and for a short period of time. This eliminates the hangover effect that some people experience.

There are many other products that may be used for insomnia. Melatonin has been shown to be helpful in treating insomnia due to melatonin deficiency in elderly patients. It can also improve sleep quality but may not increase the length of time you sleep. Kava kava and valerian root are also commonly used for the treatment of insomnia. Kava kava has not been shown to be effective in the treatment of chronic insomnia. It is also known to be potentially harmful to the liver. Valerian root can help in helping a person to sleep as well as improve sleep quality.
There are a number of treatment options available for the treatment and management of insomnia. It is important to diagnose and try to treat the root or underlying cause first. After that, a practice known as sleep hygiene should be carried out. If sleep hygiene is not effective, then the use of prescription drugs may be justified.

The cheapest treatment is, of course, sleep hygiene. If you try this approach and it doesn’t work, I’d recommend over-the-counter diphenhydramine, while still practicing sleep hygiene. There are many types available. The next step is to visit your doctor for a prescription. As my usual recommendation, start with the lowest priced drug.
For the treatment of insomnia, I would recommend trazodone first. Trazodone represents about 40% of all prescription insomnia. It’s very cheap at less than $10 per month. If that doesn’t work, use temazepam. It is also very popular and inexpensive. However, it is a controlled substance which means there is a possibility of addiction.
Trauma Can Cause Insomnia
Many people suffer from insomnia directly from trauma. Since the ordeal of September 11, millions of people every day find it difficult to rest. Some are caught up in the ordeal of 2000 and have difficulty letting go of the past, while others are direct victims of attacks and suffer from insomnia as they struggle to control their painful thoughts.
If you have suffered from trauma that has caused insomnia, then now is the time to get help dealing with this ongoing disorder. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder-PTSD has been on the minds of many people for years. When a person suffers from this disorder they often suffer from persistent insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, fears, flashbacks, heightened nervousness and so on which makes the mind difficult to cope with. So, several techniques are available outside of therapy that will help the person cope in the meantime, but mostly ongoing therapy and medications are needed to help this person survive the insomnia.
Trauma is one of the main stressors in life that causes insomnia. However, other illnesses and medical conditions contribute to the symptoms of insomnia. When the central nervous system and elements of the brain are affected, a person may find it difficult to rest peacefully. If you suffer from various diseases, medical attention is needed to get the necessary medicines to help you deal with the problem.

The most important training available to reduce stress and help a person cope with stress and trauma is to help them come to terms with thoughts where they no longer blame themselves for what has happened to them. In some, rare cases, the person may not feel guilty when experiencing insomnia and trauma. Some cases are on the right track; however, techniques are needed to help these people deal with other types of symptoms that occur when the mind is consumed. The main thing is to learn to continue the struggle to rebuild your identity. When oneself is robbed due to illness, it can make a person feel lost and lack concentration continuously because the mind is drained.
Insomnia is one of the major afflictions that targets millions of people around the world every day. The continuous development of technology, which increases environmental changes, is one of the causes of acute insomnia. When one has to constantly adapt to newer situations, the mind sometimes feels overloaded, so it ends up turning off the elements in the brain that help one find the source of relaxation.

When the soul is powerless to find a resting space, in the fullness of time the mind causes one to experience continuous turbulence throughout the day and night. Insomnia alone can cause symptoms of nervousness, panic attacks, irritation, irritation, nervousness, and so on. Thus, when a person has a mental disorder that causes difficulty sleeping, the problem increases, so that coping skills decrease. However, insomnia once again never stands alone, unless the symptoms are related to a recent tragedy or event. Mild symptoms of insomnia can appear when death occurs, during childbirth, changing jobs and so on.
Additional steps can be interesting while helping a person cope with stress and work toward a good night’s sleep. Certain medications may be able to help those tormented by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, as the symptoms of the disorder often trigger chemicals in the brain and will often affect the central nervous system. It is important when suffering from PTSD and insomnia that you avoid alcohol and drugs at all costs. It’s also important to avoid nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol before bed. Chemicals and substances will cause thoughts to increase in pattern, so avoiding these harmful contaminations will help you rest at night. People with PTSD will often avoid socializing, so you may want to try visiting a caring friend so you’ll avoid triggers, thereby helping your mind find comfort.
