How is sleep paralysis treated?
Most people need no treatment for sleep paralysis. Treating any underlying conditions such as narcolepsy may help if you are anxious or unable to sleep well. These treatments may include the following:
improving sleep habits -- such as making sure you get six to eight hours of sleep each night
using antidepressant medication to help regulate sleep cycles
treating any mental health problems that may contribute to sleep paralysis
treating any other sleep disorders, such as narcolepsy or leg cramps
