Nightmares - vivid and frightening dreams associated with a feeling of anxiety or fear - are most common in children, but can happen at any age.
Circadian rhythm sleep disorders involve an upset in our own internal “body clock” and can affect the timing of sleep and awakening.
Snoring - whether it be from your spouse, a seat mate on a plane, or maybe even yourself - can wreck your sleep. The nonbenzodiazepine medications Ambien, Lunesta, Sonata, and their generics may be used for sleep when insomnia becomes a chronic problem. When you dream, your brain stops your body from moving so you don’t thrash around and hurt yourself. If you're working out but you don't feel like you're seeing results, your sleep habits may be to blame. Dreams occur during the stage of sleep known as rapid-eye movement (REM), usually in the last half of sleep. Sleep apnea is a common, but probably underdiagnosed condition, and snoring is one symptom.
But sleepwalking - also known as somnambulism — involves getting up and walking around while in a state of sleep.
Bruxism can cause jaw disorders like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), headaches, face pain, and of course, damaged teeth.


Those suffering from sleep paralysis either become paralyzed before they are asleep, or cannot move after waking up. Occasional nightmares are nothing to worry about; however, your doctor may make a clinical diagnosis of nightmare disorder (parasomnia) if the nightmares cause ongoing trouble with daytime functioning or falling asleep, and are not due to medications or mental health conditions. Circadian rhythm sleep disorders result in difficulty falling asleep, early awakenings, poor sleep quality, and daytime drowsiness.
Narcolepsy involves abruptly falling into a deep sleep at an inappropriate time, for example while talking, eating or driving. People who grind their teeth may have other sleep-related disorders such as sleep apnea or snoring. Drug treatment for nightmares is rare; however, medicines that reduce REM sleep or nighttime awakenings may be used for severe nightmares.
During sleep apnea, you stop breathing for short periods of time - 10 to 30 seconds - during sleep. Sleepwalking usually occurs 1 to 2 hours after falling asleep and generally lasts a few minutes. Your first thought might be using a sleeping pill, but there are many other options to help you get a good night's rest. Lifestyle changes, such as weight loss, avoiding nighttime cocktails, and sleeping on your side can help limit snoring.


Occasional sleepwalking in children is not a cause for concern, but frequent or dangerous behavior, or sleepwalking in adults, needs an evaluation. Treatments can vary based on the disorder, and may include lifestyle changes like avoiding caffeine, developing healthy sleep habits, light therapy, or medications like melatonin, Provigil, Nuvigil, or Hetlioz. Symptoms usually begin between 10 and 25 years of age, and include cataplexy, sleep paralysis, and hallucinations (while falling asleep or awakening). First, look at your sleep routine and make adjustments, like avoidance of caffeine, late-night computer work, or exercising at bedtime. Short-acting hypnotics and some sedatives causing sleepwalking, sleep driving, or dangerous drowsiness before driving in the morning. As with some other sleep disorders, there is no cure for narcolepsy, but lifestyle changes and certain treatments, like stimulants, SSRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, or sodium oxybate (Xyrem) may be helpful. Short-term use of drugs such as the benzodiazepine hypnotics or OTC diphenhydramine can shorten the time to fall asleep, but you may become dependent, so review these medications with your doctor and develop a safe and long-term plan for a good night's sleep. As sleep apnea can be a serious condition, check with your doctor if you snore or always feel drowsy in the day.
