Irregular sleep-wake rhythm is a type of circadian rhythm disorder that affects the timing of a person's sleep. In this disorder, the person does not have a regular sleep pattern and may experience multiple, brief naps throughout the day and night instead of having one or two consolidated periods of sleep.


Irregular sleep-wake rhythm can be caused by a variety of factors, including dementia, Parkinson's disease, head injury, sleep deprivation, and certain medications. People with irregular sleep-wake rhythm may experience difficulty sleeping, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating during the day.


Treatment for irregular sleep-wake rhythm may involve adjusting the sleep environment, maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, and avoiding stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine. In some cases, medication may also be used to regulate the sleep-wake cycle. If you are experiencing symptoms of irregular sleep-wake rhythm, it is important to consult a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment.
