Treatment options for sleep disorders include therapy, surgery, rehabilitation and management, and medication. The specific treatment or combination of treatments will depend on a person’s symptoms and diagnosis, medical and psychiatric history, and preferences.
Special equipment may be required for treatment of several disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea. Lifestyle changes, such as avoiding certain drinks or food, losing weight, or establishing healthy sleep habits, may also help reduce or prevent some disorders like sleep apnea. Adjusting your medications or treating underlying health conditions can improve sleep. When a sleep disorder is severe, there may be limits to how it can be managed.
