Pharmacologic Approach to Insomnia.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation clinics of North America
Sleep management is essential to effective treatment of pain symptoms. Identification of the precise nature of sleep complaint, awareness of patient's age and co-morbid conditions and choice of the hypnotic medication class can help guide treatment approach. In addition to benzodiazepine and non-benzodiazepine medications acting at the GABA receptor, novel approaches, including orexin receptor agonists, may be safer and more promising pharmacologic approaches. Pharmacologic interventions, when used cautiously for a limited period of time and in complement with behavioral and cognitive approaches, can serve to improve sleep quality and significantly help in management of pain.
