Sleep Disorders Q&A

What symptoms do sleep disorders cause?

In addition to leg movements and falling asleep during the day, sleep disorders cause symptoms such as:

  • Daytime fatigue

  • Memory loss

How do psychiatry specialists treat sleep disorders?

If you have an existing psychiatric disorder, there’s a good chance your condition disrupts your sleep. Your provider can combine your mental health treatment with therapies that improve your sleep.

The first line of treatment for insomnia is cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). In addition to providing CBT-I, your provider also treats sleep disorders with a range of therapies, including:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Medication management
  • Relaxation or meditation
  • Stress management
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Plan to improve sleep habits

Following a calming routine at night, including turning off all electronics and lights, goes a long way toward improving your sleep.
