Sleep Disorders - Prognosis

Prognosis for various sleep disorders depends on the stage at which the therapy has been initiated and the compliance of the patient.

The prognosis for various sleep disorders depends on when therapy has been initiated. It also depends on the type of the disorder:

  • In short term insomnia the prognosis is very good. But chronic insomnia can sometimes be difficult to tackle.
  • The symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea disappear with CPAP therapy and weight loss further reduces the severity of the symptoms.
  • Narcolepsy in spite of adequate therapy can sometimes be difficult to eliminate.
  • The symptoms of movement disorders like RLS and PLMD are adequately controlled with dopamine.
  • Childhood disorders like sleep walking or sleep terrors disappear with the onset of adolescence.

The prognosis for sleep disorders depends on the therapy available, the time at which the therapy has been initiated and on how receptive the patient is to the therapy.
