It's available now. Theres coupons available, docs have samples. Some may need 20 mg. Personally, it appears to work better for sleep maintenence than sleep onset, doesn't seem to help w/ falling asleep, but does w/ staying asleep, may help to combine w/ something sedating like antihistamine, maybe trazadone or possibly short acting zolpidem (ambien) before bedtime. Webmd forum has reviews. Appetite reduced, taste may be affected.

Yes, it's available, but it will take awhile, before it is more commonly used/prescribed.

Belsomra works by acting on Orexin, which is one of the wakefulness promoting neurotransmitters. So, it is a unique medication that may work well for some people, when other medications have failed.

It's possible side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include daytime sleepiness, unclear thinking, acting strangely and sleep walking, or other sleep activities.

Has anyone tried this medication, yet?

Re: Verwon (# 1)

I have chronic pain, (too much to list of medical issues and surgeries not chronic pain related) PTSD, insomnia, Anxiety, etc.

I was just given sample packs from my Doctor. My usual routine is Ambien 10mg, Klonopin 2mg, Flexeril 10mg, and sometimes still watch the clock at 3am. I have tried Trazadone in the past... At times I will take my Suboxone and other meds. But who wants to take all they prescribe (10 meds) before bed, which cause me to wake with GERD and heartburn.

I took 1 20mg Belsomra, and was asleep within an hour...without taking ANY other med! I hope it continues to work! I was told to take it with my Ambien and Seroquel, but didn't need to.
