Twosleep disorders are insomnia and narcolepsy.
Insomnia is when a personhas a consistent problem either falling or staying asleep. This is also one ofthe most common sleep disorders that plague people. This sleep disorder is alsotied to depression which is also very common mental illness. The main causes ofinsomnia include mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, stress, age, and anysleep changes. One treatment that would help with insomnia but would lead to atolerance would be sleeping pills. Sleeping pills can help a person in fallingand staying asleep but the quality of sleep could be worsened because thesubject won’t be hitting REM sleep as often. Also, as I stated beforethe subject will over time develop a tolerance of the drug and as a result willneed more to fall asleep.
A second sleep disorder is Narcolepsy, this iswhen a person will have a sudden urge to sleep at any given time. This sleepdisorders main symptom is when a person is triggered by overwhelming stress orany time of excitement. The causes of narcolepsy are usually due to aneurological disorder, or the brain not producing enough orexin. One treatmentfor Narcolepsy that won’t cure it but can help in reducing and managing itwould be stimulants.
