Getting enough sleep is an important part of a healthy life. The optimal sleep goal
is 7 to 8 hours per night for most people.1 Without enough sleep, you may not think
as clearly or function at your best.1 Insomnia is also associated with serious medical
conditions such as anxiety,2 depression,2,3 obesity,4 and diabetes.4,5
You should talk to your healthcare provider about your sleep problems. Silenor may help you get on a path to more sleep.
