Belsomra

Belsomra is a selective dual antagonist of orexin receptors OX1R and OX2R that promotes sleep by reducing wakefulness and arousal. It has been approved for the treatment of insomnia.

Dose-related somnolence and CNS depression are the most common adverse effects associated with the use of belsomra. It has also been shown to impair driving skills and may increase the risk of falling asleep while driving. Next-day impairments are found to be highest if belsomra is taken with less than a full night of sleep remaining, with higher doses, or if co-administered with other CNS depressants or CYP3A inhibitors. Complex behaviours such as sleep driving, preparing and eating food, and making phone calls have been reported in association with the use of hypnotics such as belsomra. A dose-dependant increase in suicidal ideation has been observed, especially in patients with a previous diagnosis of depression. Sleep paralysis, hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations including vivid and disturbing perceptions, and mild cataplexy have also been reported. There are no adequate studies in pregnant women to ensure its safety during pregnancy or breast feeding.
