Sleep Disorder/Insomnia

If you suffer from insomnia you are unable to sleep well. You  may have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or sleeping long enough. During the day, this can make you tired and irritable. In addition to causing forgetfulness, decreased productivity at work, and low moods, it can also seriously affect health.

Many factors can contribute to insomnia, such as health problems, medications, and stressful events.

You may be advised to treat problems related to insomnia as part of a treatment plan. Behavioral and lifestyle changes are also part of the treatment process. Therapy may include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-I) for insomnia. With CBT-I, you can change your thoughts and behaviors that may disrupt your sleep. Doing relaxation exercises, keeping regular bedtimes and wake times, limiting alcohol, and making healthy sleep habits can also help. Short-term use of medication may be helpful in regulating sleep.
