Sexsomnia is now listed in the DSM-5, which might help physicians better identify the sleep disorder, reports Family Practice News.

“Classification of sexsomnia in DSM-5 adds legitimacy to the diagnosis as it takes it out of the proposed diagnosis or research diagnosis realm and places it into a formally accepted classification manual,” said Dr. Brandon G. Moore, a psychiatry resident at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. “The classification of the diagnosis helps patients in that it opens up the topic for further discussion and education of providers so that they may more readily recognize the disorder and offer appropriate treatment.”
