Intersection of Sleep and Psychiatric Disorders

A sleep specialist highlights what to watch out for in your patients.

Dr Richard Bogan discusses the ins and outs of sleep and psychiatric disorders and shares his thoughts about a recent FDA approval of XYWAV (calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium oxybates), indicated for the treatment of narcolepsy. XYWAV, manufactured by Jazz Pharmaceuticals, is "the first FDA approved new treatment option indicated for both cataplexy and excessive daytime sleepiness in people living with narcolepsy in more than 15 years."

Dr Bogan is Medical Director, SleepMed of South Carolina; Chief Medical Officer, SleepMed, Inc; Associate Clinical Professor, University of South Carolina School of Medicine; and Associate Clinical Professor, Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC.
