You may think that losing a few hours of sleep every night is not really a big deal and that you will be able to make it up. So what's the big deal? It is estimated that over 70-85 millions of Americans suffer from a sleep disorder and only 10% are being treated. Sleep disorders are very common. They are often under-recognized and therefore under-treated.  They can be associated with many medical conditions and could lead to significant impairment of quality of life.  Adequate sleep is 7-8 hours of high quality sleep per night.

Medications such as those taken for the common cold and nasal allergies, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid disease, birth control, asthma, and depression can also cause insomnia. In addition, insomnia may be a symptom of underlying sleep disorders.
