I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central for Pernix Therapeutics. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I’ve previously discussed the insomnia problem that I (and millions of other Americans) have. And, I mentioned that I was going to try out some shut-eye strategies such as signing off from social media an hour before bedtime.

I’ve done so, as well as turning off the TV when I get in bed (that was a tough habit to break!). I have to say, it works wonders when it comes to drifting off to sleep. Not having the TV droning on in the background also helps — both with falling to sleep and staying asleep. It’s amazing how much of a difference these strategies make!

The funny thing about shut-eye strategies? Most of us know they’re important, yet only half of us routinely use them. Unfortunately, for those who suffer from insomnia, shut-eye strategies simply might not be enough.

While that bad news can be discouraging, there is good news for them — SILENOR®, an effective prescription sleep aid that is used to treat people with insomnia who have trouble staying asleep.

SILENOR® is different than most sleep medications that work on the sleep-promoting system. SILENOR® works with the wake-promoting mechanism of the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle. It helps people with insomnia stay asleep through the night and early morning.

SILENOR® represents a different type of medication because it can be used regularly and is not associated with a risk of abuse or physical dependence. If you have trouble sleeping through the night, talk with your doctor about your lifestyle and symptoms to determine the best option for you. To learn more about how to achieve a full, uninterrupted night’s sleep visit

Full SILENOR® ISI: SILENOR® is a prescription sleep medicine that is used to treat people with insomnia who have trouble staying asleep. Call your doctor if your insomnia worsens or is not better within 7 to 10 days. This may mean that there is another condition causing your sleep problem. Be sure that you are able to devote 7 to 8 hours to sleep before being active again. SILENOR® should be taken within 30 minutes of bedtime. Do not take with alcohol or with other medicines that can make you sleepy. If you are on a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) or have taken a MAOI within the past two weeks, you should not take SILENOR®. You should not take SILENOR®if you have an eye problem called narrow angle glaucoma that is not being treated, if you have severe urinary retention, or if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in SILENOR®.
