Medications have not been developed specifically for the management of sleep paralysis. However, a variety of medications that are utilized to treat other disorders that are associated with sleep paralysis have, in turn, been observed to be of potential benefit in the reduction of sleep paralysis symptoms. Clinical cases are presented, which emphasize the role of management of the comorbid conditions in the definitive management of sleep paralysis. The possible role of direct management of sleep paralysis with various pharmacological agents is also explored, with a delineation of selected clinical considerations in the selection of an agent.
