Treatment for difficulty sleeping?
Question: i am not good sleep. on bed will get only 3 to 4 hour sleep only, after that i will sleeping different dreams every deep. i am facing this problem from fast approx 6 years.
Brief Answer: Medications would help. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. I have noted your symptoms and it suggests that you have insomnia (sleep disturbance). Your sleep duration as well as sleep quality are affected. Normal sleep should last for 7-8 hours (you are sleeping half that duration). In addition, your sleep quality is poor due to dreams. You would benefit from taking medications such as zolpidem (zolfresh or stilnoct). These medications would improve your sleep quality as well as quantity. They are safe as well and have no addiction potential. I hope my reply has helped you. I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

Brief Answer: You can take for one month. Detailed Answer: Thank you for getting back. If you were my patient, I would prescribe ZOLFRESH at a dose of 10 mg at bedtime, and STILNOCT at a dose of 12.5 mg once daily at bedtime. You can take them for one month and then review with neurologist. Best wishes, Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
