Watch for Daridorexant, a New Orexin Antagonist for Insomnia
Daridorexant (Quviviq) will join a crowded list of Rx insomnia meds.
It's a me-too orexin antagonist...in the same family as suvorexant (Belsomra) and lemborexant (Dayvigo). All are C-IVs.
Daridorexant will be touted to help patients fall asleep faster...stay asleep longer...and feel less tired during the day. Reps will also say it can be used nightly...with no max duration.
