FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) Nov 10, 2014 -- Chicago IL, 11-NOVEMBER-2014 - The Center for Sleep Medicine is pleased to announce that the Center offers dependable and effective help for local patients suffering from insomnia symptoms. The Chicago Sleep Medicine Center uses Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for insomnia (CBTi). CBTi is recommended by the National Institutes of Health. This treatment is as effective as sleep medications and is more effective over time. 70% to 80% of patients demonstrate significant improvement within 2 to 4 visits. Such treatment is individually tailored to an individual’s needs and preferences.

Insomnia is characterized by one or more of the following complaints: difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep, waking too early in the morning and poor quality sleep.

Insomnia can be “Acute” or “chronic”. Acute Insomnia is a temporary response to factors such as stress or jet lag and normal sleep returns on its own. Your doctor may offer medication as an option for immediate relief. One in ten adults experience chronic insomnia which can persist for months, year or even decades. When Insomnia persists for longer than four weeks, it is referred to as chronic insomnia.

Chronic insomnia can be caused by many factors. A behavioral sleep specialist at the Center will carefully evaluate the symptoms and the factors which may have caused it. Chronic Insomnia may be caused by personal and health factors, physiological factors, cognitive factors and behavioral factors.

All too often insomnia patients are told to follow good sleep hygiene or prescribed medication. While important they alone are not an effective treatment. Because sleep is a natural physiological process, long term medication use should be done with caution, as it may worsen sleep as patients develop tolerance over time.
