Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Yes, repeated head trauma, stressful life etc can cause sleep walking and other sleep related disorders. So better to consult psychiatrist and get done counselling sessions. Try to identify stressor in your life and start working on its solution. You will also need anxiolytic drugs (propranolol and Flunarizine combination) too. Don't worry, you will be alright with all these. Avoid stress and tension, be relax and calm.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Can aricept cause sleepwalking? My elderly mother has Parkinsons and just started on aricept because of some short-term memory issues. Since starting the drup she has had two incidents of finding herself on the floor late at night. She has not fallen and has not gotten hurt, but cannot explain how she has gotten there.

I am taking many medications and most of them for a very long time. I have begun to walk and talk in my sleep. Acting like people that take ambien have acted. I was hoping by putting in my prescribed meds and vitamins I would figure out what is going on but don t want to have to read the PDR for answers. Help. My email address is YYYY@YYYY
