Top Tips: Insomnia in Adults

Insomnia is said to present when people find it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep. Sleep problems are extremely common, and most people have experienced insomnia at some point of their lives. 

At any given time around one in ten people have insomnia. Older people with poor health have a higher risk. Women have twice the rates compared to men, which may be related to higher rates of anxiety and depression. Both genetic and environmental factors can cause sleep problems. Insomnia is sometimes termed primary or secondary, (for example, in the case of sleep apnoea, restless leg syndrome, chronic pain, and menopause). 

Although some patients who have insomnia may not report it as such, inadequate sleep has been associated with impaired physical health and mental health. 

We’ve produced a 'Top Tips: Insomnia in Adults' to help clinicians and primary health professionals treat and manage insomnia in adults.
