How can I cut down on sleep talking?

ANSWER

Avoiding stress and getting enough sleep might make it less likely. Keep a sleep diary for two weeks and share it with your doctor. Note when you went to bed, when you think you fell asleep, and when you wake up. Also jot down:

  • The medicines you take, and when
  • What you drink each day and when
  • When you exercise
