Treating Hypersomnia

1-800-MORE-SLEEP™

 

To treat hypersomnia your doctor may either prescribe you various medications such as clonidine, levodopa, bromocriptine, antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitor, amphetamine, methylphenidate, and modafinil. Another form of treatment is continuous positive airway pressure, or CPAP. CPAP is when you wear a mask over your nose while sleeping. The mask is connected to a machine that continually flows air into your nose through the mask. CPAP is most commonly associated with the treatment of sleep apnea. Also, if you have been prescribed a new medication that is disrupting your sleep cycle ask your doctor about changing medication to an alternative that will allow you to get the proper amount of sleep.
