Insomnia is common and can have serious consequences, such as increased risk of depression and hypertension. Acute and chronic insomnia require different management approaches. >Chronic insomnia is unlikely to spontaneously remit, and over time will be characterised by cycles of relapse and remission or persistent symptoms. Chronic insomnia is best managed using non-drug strategies such as cognitive behaviour therapy. For patients with ongoing symptoms, there may be a role for adjunctive use of medications such as hypnotics.
