Question: 83 yr.old male has sensation each day at 4:00 that is time for bed and even prepares for bed. How do you prevent this? Lib

Answer: Dear Lib,

The need to go to sleep and four o'clock in the afternoon may be due to a sleep disorder. A sleep disorder includes the following:

- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- Falling asleep at odd times
- Sleeping too much
- Odd sleeping behaviors

A sleep disorder can be diagnosed by a doctor by performing physical exams and special tests. After a sleep disorder has been diagnosed it can be treated properly, usually by making changes in lifestyle and routine.
