Sleep paralysis is a common condition in young adults and is generally associated with other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. Sleep paralysis is of two types, if the sleep paralysis occur while falling asleep then it is called hypnagogic or predormital sleep paralysis, where as if it occurs while waking up it is known as hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis.

Generally physicians do not prescribe a treatment for sleep paralysis. However, physicians treat the underlying conditions such as narcolepsy. Stimulants are generally prescribed for sleep paralysis treatment. These include drugs that stimulate the CNS. The most common stimulants used for sleep paralysis treatment are modafinil and armodafinil. Some physicians also prescribe SSRIs for sleep paralysis treatment since this medication suppress REM sleep that helps alleviate the symptoms of sleep paralysis.  Tricyclic antidepressants are also prescribed some times for sleep paralysis treatment.
