4 weeks: Belsomra is one of the newest medications for insomnia so I have little experience with it. It works in a novel way by blocking orexin, a hormone the brain produces to keep us alert and activated. It is currently approved for four weeks. It's advantage is that there's no dependency likely . The long term risk may be depression.
