    The aim of the study was to assess prevalence and treatment modalities of insomnia in general practice.

    To investigate the course of insomnia, a longitudinal study design was adopted.

    Two thousand five hundred and twelve patients (age 18-65 years) were investigated with a questionnaire in general practice. (T1).

    Four months later (T2) and again 2 years later (T3) a questionnaire was sent to all patients who had complained about severe insomnia at the time of the first inquiry.

    To assess insomnia, operationalized diagnostic criteria were applied (DSM-III-R).

    Eighteen point seven percent suffered from severe, 12.2% suffered from moderate and 15% suffered from mild insomnia.

    In the course of 2 years insomnia appeared as a chronic health problem.
