Merck's (MRK +0.6%) potential blockbuster insomnia drug suvorexant performs well in two-late stage trials, helping patients fall asleep faster and stay in dreamland for longer than a placebo. Suvorexant is designed to minimize morning grogginess, although the major side effects were headaches and...tiredness. Still, Merck intends to file for FDA approval this year.

  • Waking up from a good night sleep with a headache and tiredness? Can anyone call that a good night sleep? May be it's not a bad idea for the pharma industry. A sleeping pill before bedtime then quickly a heavy dose of aspirin upon rising. Better still, Merck and Bayer should join effort to make a combo of suvorexant and delayed-acting aspirin formulation. Good luck Merck! The jury is still out on this one.

     

    I personally own Merck stocks and am trying to shed some to decrease liability.
