Neurological meds effect the rem sleep cycle


Recommended Posts

Where have I been? Did you know this. My 11 yo dd who has controlled epilepsy takes 2 meds to keep her seizure free. Then she's on 2 behavioral meds. One med stimulates for add/adhd issues and another med is to mellow her out and help her sleep...oy!


We were told this past Tues during a f/u with dd's neurol that neur/behav meds can manipulate the rem cycle in sleep.


Just wanted to share in case you didn't know. This is new to us and we didn't connec the dots. :glare:
