MDD in the setting of Insomnia Disorder has been associated with more severe symptoms, increased risk of suicidal planning [3], as well as an increased risk of relapse when treated [4]. Residual insomnia symptoms may persist in as many as 72% of patients in remission from depression [5]. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is an evidence-based treatment for MDD with proven efficacy and effectiveness [6].

AbstractDual orexin receptor antagonists (DORAs) represent a novel type of sleep medication that provide an alternative to the traditionally used positive allosteric gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-A receptor modulators. Daridorexant is a new DORA that exhibited in phase 3 trials in insomnia not only a beneficial effect on sleep variables, measured objectively and assessed subjectively, but also an improvement in daytime functioning. Daridorexant was discovered through a tailored research program aimed at identifying an optimized sleep-promoting molecule with pharmacokinetic properties appropriate for covering the whole nig...
