"These findings highlight the urgent need for sleep-focused assessments and treatments in this new group of combat-exposed military veterans," principal investigator Anne Germain said in a prepared statement.

The findings were expected to be presented Tuesday at the annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, in Baltimore.

A study presented at the meeting Monday concluded that a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment for insomnia may be effective among veterans returning from Iraq.

The study included five male veterans, aged 25 to 37, who'd had insomnia for one to five years. All of them spent 15 to 23 months in Iraq over one to three deployments. Researchers found that the veterans preferred relaxation therapy and pharmacological treatment followed by stimulus control instructions, sleep restriction therapy, mindfulness-based intervention, and sleep education and hygiene.
