ABSTRACT
Sleep and epilepsy are interrelated. Sleep influences the expression of epileptic seizures and the frequency of interictal epileptiform discharges, typically during nonrapid eye movement sleep. Conversely, epilepsy and its treatment alter sleep regulation, provoke sleep disruption, and affect daytime alertness, and may contribute to, or improve sleep disorders. Effective treatment of a coexisting sleep disorder may improve seizure control, daytime alertness, and health-related quality of life. Understanding the relationship between sleep and epilepsy may lead to improved knowledge for optimizing management of the epilepsy patient.
