Schizophrenia is a chronic, disabling condition that significantly impacts social and occupational functioning. Sleep problems are common to the illness, but are often overlooked. Patients with schizophrenia often have a combination of subjective sleep complaints and objective findings on polysomnographic testing. As a group, people with schizophrenia have a higher prevalence of common sleep disorders. This article reviews sleep abnormalities and disorders in schizophrenia and provides an overview of treatment options.
