Why insomnia is the ignored sleep disorder

We've written before about the economics of insomnia medication. Now, an article by MSN Money sheds new light on the price of a good night's sleep.

Some key points from the article:

  • Sales of prescription sleep aids are expected to double in 2010 - reaching $4.3 billion.
  • Few doctors have training in sleep medicine.
  • Sleep centers are averaging a 10 week wait for appointments.
  • Sleep apnea is the most lucrative sleep disorder - with treatment costing around $10,000 (usually covered by insurance).
  • Insomnia treatment is less attractive as billing needs to be done under a psychological code which pays poorly.

We suspect this article has got to the root problem when it comes to treating and understanding insomnia - the condition isn't really understood (we need to give doctors more training in sleep medicine) and it's less profitable than other sleep disorders.

Then again, perhaps we're just being cynical.
