How can Sleep Disorder be treated ?

In treating sleep disorders the underlying cause has to be treated first.

Insomnia - The treatment is related to the cause, if it is determined. If there is an obvious physical or psychological cause, it is treated. Change in environment and lifestyle also helps to treat this condition. Control of light, noise, caffeine or other stimulants, or erratic hours of wakefulness should be made. Medicines to induce sleep are not advised.

Hypersomnia - Sleep apnea is treated with weight reduction and the administration of air under pressure through the nose. Occasionally, surgery or other measures may be needed. Narcolepsy is treated with stimulating medicines at the daytime. Treatment of Nocturnal myoclonus is done by treating the underlying disorder.

Parasomnias - Night walking is treated with Psychoanalysis and counseling.

Sleep disorder clinics help people restore normal sleeping patterns through various techniques.

THIS IS TO INFORM THAT I WORK IN MERCHANT NAVY AND MY WORKING TIMES ARE VERY IRREGULAR. THEREFORE I DO NOT GET SOMETIMES ENOUGH TIME TO SLEEP AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY, ONLY FOR A SHORT DURATION THEREBY MAKING ME LAZY AND CHANGING MY APETITE. THESE CONDITIONS HERE CANNOT BE CHANGED FOR SURE, THEREFORE WHAT CAN BE DONE TO HAVE GOOD SLEEP AT ANY GIVEN TIME
