It’s a night
and day issue.™
Are you talking to your patients with insomnia about their night and day? Insomnia is characterized by patients experiencing difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or both, despite having adequate opportunity to sleep.1 Another characteristic of insomnia is when a patient’s sleep difficulty results in daytime impairment, such as fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and irritability.2-4 This can impact social, occupational, educational, behavioral, or other areas of functioning.1
In addition to next-day effects from the disorder, patients may also suffer from residual effects of the prescription medications they are taking to treat their insomnia.5
When discussing sleep with your patients, what they may not be telling you can be crucial. You may be asking about the number of hours they sleep and if they wake during the night, but are you asking about their next day? It’s information your patients with insomnia may be holding back.
So, remember to always ask your patients with insomnia how they feel upon waking.
