Sleepwalking is generally more common in children. Based on statistic, about 70% of children sleepwalked and the majority of them get over it when by the age of 15. However, there is still small proportion of people (about 4%) who persisted throughout adult life.
Sleepwalking disorder is known to have a strong hereditary component where almost 50% of sleepwalkers have reported history of sleepwalking behavior in their family. It can also occur in people who are not normally a sleepwalker where the sleepwalking behavior is triggered by external factors such as drug, medication and alcohol. For instance, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic or anti-seizure medication has been known to be able to induce sleepwalking in patients. Stress, fatigue and tiredness from both psychological and physiological sources are also factors that cause sleepwalking disorder.
Although treatment such as sedative and hypnotize has been used to treat the symptoms of sleepwalking, there is no definitive cure. However, there are ways to reduce it occurrences or it impacts. For instance, for adults who are sleepwalkers, healthy lifestyle practice and healthy diet could help to reduce sleepwalking behavior as it helps to reduce the stress levels and also reduce consumption to alcohol and drugs. Lock your room’s windows and doors before you sleep would be one of the best options to reduce the impacts of your sleepwalking action.
