Abstract

A case of hypnopompic hallucinations associated with donepezil is described. Electroencephalogram (EEG) and sleep EEG changes are common in Alzheimers Disease and acetylcholinesterase inhibitor drugs can affect rapid eye movement sleep and alertness. The importance of assessing sleep in patients treated with these drugs is discussed.
