    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of indiplon in primary insomnia. DESIGN: Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, 3-month study. SETTING: Multi-center outpatient setting. PATIENTS: N=702 (61% female; mean age 46 years) who met DSM-IV criteria for primary insomnia of at least 3 months' duration. Interventions: Indiplon 10 mg (n=236), indiplon 20 mg (n=233), or placebo (n=233). MEASUREMENTS: Subjective assessment of each of the following: latency to sleep onset (sLSO), total sleep time (sTST), number of awakenings after sleep onset (sNAASO), wake time after sleep onset (sWASO), sleep quality, Insomnia Severity Index (ISI), and global improvement. RESULTS: Treatment with indiplon resulted in significant improvement relative to placebo at all time points for the primary endpoint, sLSO. Mean sLSO at Month 1 for each treatment group was: 10 mg (34.0 +/- 1.3 mins), 20 mg (33.0 +/- 1.3 mins), and placebo (48.7 +/- 1.9 mins; P
