FDA approved BELSOMRA based on the results of two trials that included 1,266 healthy adults. People in the studies had to sleep less than 6.5 hours a night and take more than 30 minutes to fall asleep for at least 3 nights a week during a month or more. Participants were an average age of 56, and 64 percent were women. They were randomly given either BELSOMRA or placebo nightly for 3 months. Get the DrugFactsBox™ to see what happened.
