Sleep disturbances remain common problems among patients with mental health disorders. The challenges in providing effective treatment to these patients may relate to the use of medications that may not optimally address a patient’s symptom complex. Knowledge about comorbid conditions that may complicate insomnia therapy and the pharmacological properties of available insomnia medications are essential to formulating effective treatment plans. This session will explore these treatment challenges, reviewing the multiple influences that may contribute to difficulty with sleep onset and maintenance. Dr. Neubauer will review a variety of therapeutic options, and will include an update on the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of medications approved for insomnia treatment.
