Belsomra (suvorexant) is a sleep medicine that helps regulate your sleep and wake cycle.

Belsomra is used to treat insomnia (trouble falling asleep or staying asleep).

Belsomra may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Belsomra causes sleep by blocking receptors in the brain called orexin receptors. Orexin A and B are brain chemicals that cause people to stay awake by binding to orexin receptors. Belsomra prevents orexin A and orexin B from causing wakefulness by blocking their attachment to orexin receptors. Reduced wakefulness means more sleep or increased ability to fall asleep. Suvorexant is a Schedule IV controlled substance similar to benzodiazepines because it has a low potential for abuse.

Important information

You should not use Belsomra if you have narcolepsy. The FDA approved Belsomra in April 2014.



Usual Adult Dose for Insomnia:

10 mg orally once a day at bedtime

Maximum dose: 20 mg once a day


-Take within 30 minutes of going to bed, with at least 7 hours remaining before the planned time of awakening.

-If 10 mg is well-tolerated but not effective, the dose can be increased.

-Time to effect may be delayed if taken with or soon after a meal.

Use: Insomnia characterized by difficulties with sleep onset and/or sleep maintenance.

The recommended dose of suvorexant is 5 mg when it is combined with the following drugs because these drugs moderately block the breakdown of suvorexant in the liver:

aprepitant (Emend),

atazanavir (Reyataz),

ciprofloxacin (Cipro),

diltiazem (Cardizem),


fluconazole (Diflucan),

fosamprenavir (Lexiva),

The dose of Belsomra may be increased to 10 mg if the 5 mg dose is not effective.
