Abstract: Primary insomnia is a term that has been used for sleeplessness that is not attributable to medical, psychiatric or environmental cause. It is estimated to occur in 25% of all chronic insomnia patients. Common conventional treatment include sedating anti- histamines, Hypnotics, cognitive behavior therapy, behavioral therapy etc. But the hypnotics cause side effects like drowsiness especially during the day time, constipation, headache etc. & they may also cause dependence when patient use them for a long time. Homoeopathy has a great role in the treatment of primary insomnia because we treat each and every patient as a whole and on the basis of individualization so there will be a more chance to cure the sick individual who is suffering from primary insomnia & these medicines also help to decrease stress or provide good quality sleep in patients.
