The prevalence (and cost) of sleeping pills in the UK

In 2010/2011, the UK's National Health Service spent £49.2 million ($77 million) on 15.3 million prescriptions for sleeping pills - that's an increase of 17% compared to three years before.

In the North West alone, £8.5 million was spent on 2.5 million prescriptions for sleeping pills. The most popular sleeping pill was zoplicone (a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic) - this drug alone was given to over five million patients.

If we do the math, each prescription is costing about £3.20 ($5). When drugs are that cheap, it becomes rather more obvious why cognitive behavioral therapy is often so difficult to access.
