Insomnia

Insomnia is a condition in which you are unable to fall asleep, stay asleep or have restless, nonrestorative sleep. The lack of sleep affects your work performance, ability to concentrate and makes it difficult to control some medical conditions, such as diabetes.

Insomnia may be caused by medicines, stress, a change in your work schedule or medical conditions. In many cases, insomnia can be treated by following the rules for good sleep hygiene, changing medications or better managing your health.

Sometimes insomnia is a symptom of a larger problem, such as sleep apnea. Talk to your physician about your insomnia if it is accompanied by snoring or jolting awake, or if you experience it on multiple nights.

If you are experiencing insomnia, talk to your physician before using sleep aid medicines. Over-the-counter medicine may not provide you with restful sleep and may actually make symptoms of insomnia worse.

Our physicians understand how important good sleep is for your health and quality of life. At Indiana University Health, we want to help you experience restful sleep and will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that fits your lifestyle. Your plan may consist of many components including education, behavioral therapy or medication therapies. With our team of sleep experts on your side, you will be on your way to more restful sleep.
