Insomnia / Difficulty Sleeping

Insomnia is defined as difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both, despite adequate opportunity and time to sleep, leading to impaired daytime functioning.  Insomnia may be due to poor quality or quantity of sleep.

Insomnia is very common and occurs in 30% to 50% of the general population.  Approximately 10% of the population may suffer from chronic insomnia.  Insomnia affects people of all ages including children, although it is more common in adults and its frequency increases with age.  In general, women are affected more frequently than men.
