Sleep disorders are common in patients with epilepsy. In addition to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), many primary sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and sleep-maintenance insomnia are 2 to 3 times more prevalent in people with epilepsy than the general populations [1]. Also, sleep in these patients may be adversely affected by nocturnal epileptiform discharges/seizures and antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Co-morbid sleep problems in turn, lead to a poorer quality of life in adults [2–4] and have negative effects on daytime behaviour and academic performance in children and adolescents [5,6].
