About Insomnia

Back to the top

Insomnia is a common condition that makes it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or get enough sleep. Insomnia may affect your health, work performance, and overall quality of life.

Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder. According to the Cleveland Clinic, nearly 70 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders every year. Insomnia, in particular, affects 35-50% of adults. Many people have short-term (acute) insomnia at some point in their lives, which can continue for days or weeks. It's generally caused by stress or a stressful experience. Some people, however, suffer from long-term (chronic) insomnia that lasts a month or longer. Chronic insomnia affects 10-15% of adults.

The amount of sleep you need varies from person to person, but it is generally recommended that adults get between 7-9 hours of sleep per night. If you are having a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep, talk to your doctor about treatment options for insomnia.
