A new study shows that cognitive behavioral therapy, which includes stimulus control, sleep restriction, sleep hygiene, and relaxation seems to be as or more effective and safer than sleeping pills. There were over a thousand patients. They fell asleep an average of 20 minutes sooner, slept an average of 26 minutes longer, and their sleep efficiency, as measured by sleep studies, improved by 10%.
