The treatment of a sleep disorder depends primarily on its cause. Often several factors or diseases are present at the same time. This means that a single, special therapy is usually not enough.
Rather, it is different, often interdisciplinary measures that pave the way to a restful sleep. For all concerned, however, it makes sense to pay attention to good sleep hygiene.
Treat sleeping disorders with sleeping pills
In many cases , the doctor prescribes a sleep aid for sleep disorders in order to break the vicious circle of insomnia and anxiety about sleepless nights. However, such medications are only prescribed for four weeks otherwise there is a risk of becoming addicted.
If a doctor identifies a mental cause, or if the patient suffers from psychological problems as a result of the sleep disorder, he usually refers to a psychotherapist who can treat the sleep disorders.
Also herbal medicines (eg with lavender oil) can help with insomnia by relieving inner restlessness and stopping the thought carousel.
