In brief: Many

Medications to treat insomnia are varied and range from the benzodiazepine class to non-benzodiazepine medications.
However, a careful review of what the sleep issue is, is paramount to medication prescribing. Sleep physicians try and rule out other sleep disorders in conjunction with using medications. A specialized talk therapy called cbt-i is quite effective in treating certain insomnias.
