Sleep

Sleep-related difficulties are very common in CdLS and can begin as early as infancy (135). Difficulties can include insomnia (difficulty falling and/or staying asleep), apnoea (breathing temporarily stops during sleep), daytime drowsiness and frequent daytime napping (90,133,134,135,136).

Approximately 60% of individuals with CdLS are affected by insomnia and some affected individuals are reported to go for several days without sleep (135). Snoring is also fairly common in CdLS and can lead to daytime drowsiness (134,136). Sleep-related difficulties in individuals with CdLS can have serious consequences. Behavioural sleep interventions and melatonin can be helpful in treating sleep problems in CdLS (R49). Sleep-related difficulties are less common in adults with CdLS. Research suggests that sleep difficulties spontaneously improve over time.
