What Is a Circadian Rhythm Disorder?

Circadian rhythm disorders occur when the body’s internal clock becomes disrupted, making it difficult to sleep and wake up at the correct times. Some examples of circadian rhythm disorders include:

  • Advanced sleep phase disorder
  • Delayed sleep phase disorder
  • Irregular sleep-wake rhythm disorder
  • Jet lag
  • Non-24-hour sleep-wake syndrome
  • Shift work disorder

Difficulty sleeping can cause fatigue, which can in turn lead to daytime sleepiness, stress, depression, and trouble keeping up with work, school, and social obligations.

How Are Circadian Rhythm Disorders Treated?

Circadian rhythm disorders treatment will vary among patients depending on factors such as the type of disorder present, the severity of symptoms, and the individual’s lifestyle. With that being said, treatment for a circadian rhythm sleep disorder may involve:

  • Medication
  • Bright light therapy
  • Chronotherapy
  • Lifestyle changes (such as maintaining a regular sleep schedule, exercising, and avoiding certain substances and activities before bed)
