CHICAGO – "Having insomnia increases the risk of suicidality," according to Thomas Roth, Ph.D., a speaker at this year’s Psychiatry Update 2014 sponsored by Current Psychiatry and the American Academy of Clinical Psychiatrists. "This is especially true in adolescents."
In this video, Dr. Roth of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit discusses what primary care physicians can do to help manage the drastic impact insomnia can have on a person’s life, and he explores the relationship sleeplessness has with suicide and depression. He also discusses how insomnia can be triggered by a variety of medications, including beta-blockers.
