  • Drakatos P, Marples L, … Leschziner G
  • CONCLUSIONS: The treatment approach to effective treatment of the patients with Non-REM parasomnias or POD offering first sleep hygiene advice, next treatment of concurrent sleep disorders and management of other priming factors like stress and anxiety, and lastly pharmacotherapy for Non-REM parasomnia is supported by our results. Non pharmacological interventions were effective in one third of our patients, and CBT/MBSR and melatonin appeared promising new treatments.

  • CONCLUSIONS: This study finds that parasomnias in children are not benign and that treatment with L-tryptophan provides a favorable outcome. Children diagnosed with parasomnia had altered sleep architecture, were more fatigued, and endorsed depressive symptoms. This study supports the need to diagnose and treat parasomnias in children.

  • CONCLUSIONS: Using subjective sleep problems to detect latent sleep disorders among long-haul truck drivers may be a timely and effective way to screen this highly mobile occupational segment. This approach should constitute one component of comprehensive efforts to diagnose and treat sleep disorders among commercial transport operators.
  • Non-Rapid Eye Movement Sleep Parasomnias and Migraine: A Role of Orexinergic Projections. [Journal Article]
  • FNFront Neurol 2018; 9:95
  • Messina A, Bitetti I, … Carotenuto M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Serotonergic neurons of the MR nuclei receive an excitatory input from hypothalamic orexin/hypocretin neurons and reciprocally inhibit orexin/hypocretin neurons through the serotonin 1A receptor (or 5-HT1A receptor). Considering this complex system, if there is an alteration it may facilitate the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the migraine, while it may produce at the same time an alteration of the sleep-wake rhythm, causing sleep disorders such as sleepwalking. Understanding the complex mechanisms underlying migraine and sleep disorders and how these mechanisms can interact with each other, it would be crucial to pave the way for new therapeutic strategies.
