Somnambulism: If you are sleepwalking infrequently (less than once or twice a month), most doctors will not be inclined to give you any medical treatment. However, some general strategies to employ would be to make sure you can't leave the house or injure yourself while you are sleepwalking. If the sleepwalking remains problematic, a low dose of Clonazepam before bedtime is sometimes prescribed.
