Bipolar Disorder and Sleep Problems

Wednesday, Nov. 13, in conference rooms A and B at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. The meeting is free and open to the public. Do you have a child who snores or gasps for breath in their sleep? Even children can suffer from sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that is often associated with adults. For children, effectively treating the condition often leads to improved behavior and quality of life.

A first step may be figuring out all the factors that may be affecting sleep and discussing them with your doctor. Keeping a sleep diary may help. Include information about: How long it takes to go to sleep How many times you wake up during the night How long you sleep all night When you take medication or use caffeine , alcohol, or nicotine When you exercise and for how long Certain bipolar medications may also affect sleep as a side effect. For example, they may disrupt the sleep-wake cycle.

Sleep Disorders In Ad

About 15 percent of the adults in North American and Europe have restless leg syndrome, and in these populations there is a high incidence of familial cases, suggesting a genetic tendency. Symptoms usually appear at about age 45 although they may occur in childhood. Surgery of any kind, as well as back injuries, may precipitate or worsen restless leg syndrome. Medications known to worsen symptoms include anti-nausea drugs, caffeine antihistamines, antidepressants, antipsychotic drugs, and anti-seizure medications. Patients with gluten sensitivity enteropathy may notice a worsening of symptoms when gluten is ingested.

Get Some Sleep: ADHD, sleep disorders often entwined

I wish I had known about this a lot sooner. His doctors have told me for years that his tonsils and adnoids are enlarged, but refused to take them out because it wasn’t “necessary”. He was on ADHD meds until high school when he refused to take them anymore because of the way they made him feel. His grades immediately dropped from B’s to D’s and his sleep deteriorated to the point that he could not stay awake in class. Now he’s an adult and can’t sleep more than an hour or two at a time unless he is so worn out that he practically passes out. He’s still on our health insurance so I am taking him back to the doctor to be evaluated and possibly finally get those tonsils and adnoids removed.
