Re: Disrupted Sleep
Oct 4, 2006

Dr. Henry, thanks for all the good advice. Regarding the person who discussed sleep problems related to Sustiva there was one piece of information that was not addressed and may help. The individual said his/her legs moved around alot while they were in bed. It is possible that Restless Legs Syndrome or Periodic Limb Movement Disorder may be interfering with sleep. Both of these can be treated. I am not aware of these being related to HIV meds, but that is possible. Just a thought on additional possibilities to improve sleep for this person. Thanks again for all you do.

Response from Dr. Henry

Thanks for that additional comment about restless leg syndrome as a possible condition contributing to sleep problems. KH
