Dr. Heith Durrence, Medical Science Director for Pernix Therapeutics, spoke about insomnia stating, "Sadly it is a lot more common that most people think. Anywhere between 40 and 60 million Americans suffer each year, several times a week. In addition to that, the sleep maintenance form of the disorder, lasting more than a month, is up to 10 million people."
There are many types of sleep problems and while there are many options on the market, Pernix Therapeutics has developed a medication that helps to treat sleep maintenance insomnia. That is where people have difficulty with staying asleep, not falling asleep. The prevalence for this type of insomnia is twice as high as the more well known insomnia where people cannot fall asleep.
This unique drug is Silenor and it is a highly effective antihistamine. It has its greatest effect towards the end of the night, which helps with the individuals who cannot stay asleep.
Vice President of Programming of Modern Living with kathy ireland, JL Haber, was quoted stating, "There are many people who have trouble with sleeping. Until now, sleep maintenance insomnia was difficult to treat because medication worked at the beginning of the night. Pernix Therapeutics has changed all of that."
