Overview

Sleep disorders are a very heterogeneous group. General practitioners are first in line to encounter patients with acute and chronic insomnia. In differential diagnosis we have to consider narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia, REM and non-REM parasomnias (somnambulism, pavor nocturnus, restless leg syndrome) and apnoeic sleep disorder. The pharmacological and cognitive behavioral therapy of sleep disorders is discussed.

Key words:
sleep, hypnotics, antidepressants, cognitive behavioral therapy.
