Sleep disorders (or sleep-wake disorders) are problems with the quality, timing, and amount of sleep, which result in daytime distress and impairment in functioning. Sleep-wake disorders often occur along with medical conditions or other mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, or cognitive disorders. There are several different types of sleep-wake disorders, of which insomnia is the most common. Other sleep-wake disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, parasomnias, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome. Sleep difficulties are linked to both physical and emotional problems. Sleep problems can both contribute to or exacerbate mental health conditions and can be a symptom of other mental health conditions such as anxiety. Medication treatment for these conditions usually relieves insomnia. These disorders are treatable with sleep hygiene techniques that promote healthy sleep behaviors and medications to start and maintain a normal sleep cycle. There are many medications that are not habit-forming or addictive that provide immediate relief.
