Treatments For Sleep Disorders
Your treatment for a sleep disorder might be something as simple as establishing a regular routine--getting up and going to bed at the same time every day. Maybe you need medication or surgery.
Other treatments include:
- Avoiding caffeine before bed time.
- Turning off the TV while sleeping to avoid flickering lights.
- Keeping the room cool and dark.
- Using a continuous positive airway pressure (C-PAP) machine to open your airways and get air flowing to your heart and lungs.
