Dose-related effects of triazolam and flurazepam on a circadian rhythm insomnia.

Forty-eight normal subjects had sleep recordings and multiple sleep latency tests (an EEG measure of sleepiness) before and after a 12-hour shift of sleep-wake schedule. After 2 baseline days, subjects postponed sleep until 12:00 noon, then for three 24-hour periods were in bed from 12:00 noon until 8:00 PM. Treatment in parallel groups were administered before shifted sleeps. Sleep disturbance was greatest in the last quarter of shifted nights (6.5 to 8.5 hours after medication). Subjects taking placebo showed significant sleep loss on shifted nights and increased sleepiness the next day. Triazolam, 0.5 mg, reversed the sleep loss and consequent daytime sleepiness associated with the shifted sleep schedule. Triazolam, 0.25 mg, was not significantly better than placebo. In a dose-related manner, flurazepam mitigated the insomnia, but carryover effects left both dose groups more sleepy than were the placebo control subjects. Whether these laboratory results are applicable to clinically occurring forms of transient insomnia remains to be seen.[1]
