Hi doctor,

I have nightmares in the night. How can you help me not have them?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Nightmare in adults can be due to various reasons. The most common of them being not having a good sleep.
  • Practice sleep hygiene such as sleeping and waking up at the regular time, avoiding caffeinated drinks for at least 8 hours before sleep, avoid using television, mobile, laptop, etc., half an hour before sleep.
  • Daily exercise and breathing relaxation exercise like yoga can help.
  • Take a light diet in the night and avoid taking refined carbohydrates or sugars and heavy protein diet for dinner.
