“Clock-watching” and insomnia are linked to posttraumatic stress symptoms – packaged with a zolpidem ad!

Just got this mass email. The ad next to it is for zolpidem – just the kind of stuff that might NOT benefit post-traumatic states. What’s the message here?

Maternal migraine is associated with increased risk of infant colic.

One wonders if an updated view of genetics, i.e. one that includes epigenetics would make more sense. We mentioned the nexus of migraine, panic disorder, separation anxiety and abdominal symptoms in childhood in our 2008 paper [Preter M, Klein DF. Panic, Suffocation False Alarms, Separation Anxiety and Endogenous Opioids. Progress in Neuropsychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry 32/3 (2008) 603-612.
