Abstract

Background: Prior research confirms that insomnia is highly prevalent in patients with psychiatric disorders. Benzodiazepine hypnotics, causing serious disadvantages, have been widely used in psychiatry for a long time. Sansoninto (SNT), Japanese herbal medicine, is used for patients with weakness and fatigue, annoyance, insomnia, amnesia, and neurotic symptoms.
Objective: The efficacy and safety of SNT was examined in adult psychiatric disorder patients with insomnia symptoms.
Methods: Eighty-one adults with sleep disturbance meeting DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria for psychiatric disorders (schizophrenia: 17; monopolar depression: 20; bipolar depression: 10; adjustment disorder: 12; anxiety disorder: 5; others: 17) were treated openly for four weeks with SNT (2.5-7.5 g) at bedtime. Patients maintained sleep throughout the study. Efficacy was analyzed using a repeated measures methodology. The primary outcome was the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). The secondary outcomes were the Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS), Clinical Global Impression-Improvement (CGI-I), and change of dosage of benzodiazepine hypnotics (diazepam equivalent).
Results: After 4 weeks of SNT therapy, significant symptom reduction was observed on all parameters (PSQI: 10.22 ± 3.23 vs. 3.11 ± 3.52; ISI: 20.63 ± 4.86 vs. 3.38 ± 5.10; AIS: 17.41 ± 4.69 vs. 2.85 ± 4.23; dosage of benzodiazepine hypnotics [diazepam equivalent, mg]:10.5 ± 4.71 vs. 2.98 ± 3.37). No withdrawal involved treatmentrelated adverse events.
Conclusion: Data from this 4-week open-label study suggests SNT was an effective and generally well tolerated treatment for insomnia symptoms in this sample of adult patients with psychiatric disorders.
