    How Insomnia Treatment Works

    Step 1

    Complete an online evaluation

    learn more

    You’ll answer a comprehensive set of questions to see if mental health treatment for insomnia through Nurx is right for you and allow a Nurx medical provider to evaluate your symptoms. We use clinically-backed screening questions similar to what you would complete when starting treatment with an in-person mental health professional. With Nurx, you can get started on your schedule, no appointment needed.

    Step 2

    Connect with a licensed Nurx medical provider

    learn more

    Our medical team is comprised of licensed providers who are trained and supervised by a board-certified psychiatrist to treat anxiety and depression. If Nurx telehealth services are right for you, a provider will evaluate your responses and reach out in a few short days with additional information.

    Step 3

    Get treatment and ongoing care, on your schedule

    learn more

    If you are prescribed medication, our pharmacy can deliver it to your door and your medical provider will stay in touch to make sure it’s working for you‡, adjust your treatment or dose as needed, and provide ongoing guidance. Please note: Nurx does not provide therapy or counseling. Nurx is not available for crisis response.

    Treatments We Offer For Insomnia

    If medically appropriate, your Nurx medical provider will create an insomnia treatment plan for you after reviewing your health history and symptoms. Initial treatment is usually a daily or as-needed medication in the form of a sedative antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication that can help you fall asleep easier or sleep through the night.* Nurx providers can prescribe a few different medications for insomnia, including SARIs, tricyclics, and melatonin receptor agonists.† Individual factors determine which medication will be most effective and your medical provider will partner with you to get it right.‡ Treatment usually works best when combined with talk therapy, which Nurx does not currently offer.

    Please note: Ambien®, Lunesta®, benzodiazepines (Xanax® or Ativan®) or any controlled substances are not available through Nurx.

    Insomnia Questions?

    • How does insomnia treatment with Nurx work?

      Whether you suspect you are experiencing depression or anxiety, or have been diagnosed with these conditions in the past, you can request treatment from Nurx any time through our website or app. You’ll answer a comprehensive set of questions similar to the intake you would complete when starting treatment with an in-person mental health professional. Your answers to these questions will allow your Nurx medical provider to evaluate your symptoms, make a diagnosis and (if medically appropriate) create a treatment plan.

      Within two days of submitting your request for treatment a Nurx medical provider licensed in your state will send a message to your Nurx account to ask any follow up questions and propose a treatment plan. You’ll have the chance to share any information and ask any questions you’d like. Once your medical provider has prescribed treatment our pharmacy will fill your prescription and your medication will arrive in the mail.

      Your medical provider will follow up regularly to monitor how your medication is working, and adjust treatment as needed, and you can message them any time with questions or to request adjustments.

    • How much does insomnia treatment with Nurx cost?

      Treatment through Nurx costs $65 for the initial consultation and $55 per month for ongoing medication management, which includes a licensed medical provider evaluating your intake assessment, creating and prescribing your treatment plan, and managing your medication needs on an ongoing basis.

      We bill insurance for your medication, and copays are as little as $0-$10 per month. The out-of-pocket price for most medication is $25 per month, and shipping is always free.

    • What medications do Nurx providers prescribe for insomnia?

      Your Nurx medical provider will create a personalized treatment plan based on your symptoms and health history. Nurx prescribes and delivers a comprehensive selection of mental health treatments including SSRIs, SNRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, and medications that may be used to treat panic attacks. The Nurx medical team prescribes these treatments according to evidence-based clinical guidelines and based on each patient’s individual symptoms and health history.

    • What types of anxiety does Nurx treat?

      Nurx medical providers treat Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Insomnia related to anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder, though our medical team evaluates each patient individually and will only prescribe treatment to patients who they determine can be safely and appropriately cared for through telehealth.

    • What does the $55/month cover?

      There isn’t a one-size-fits all treatment for mental health conditions — the medication/s and the dose that work best varies by individual patient and may change for that patient over time. For that reason, you may need to communicate with our medical team regularly at the beginning of your treatment to make sure you achieve good results. Once your treatment plan is established our medical team will check in throughout the year, to confirm that the treatment is working and adjust if needed. Nurx patients can message the medical team any time to ask questions about their treatment or request prescription adjustments. This ongoing care and unlimited access to our medical team costs $65 for the initial consultation (in addition to the copay or cost of your medication) and $55/month for ongoing medication management, even if there are months when you don’t communicate with us. Please note that Nurx does not provide therapy or counseling.
