In brief: Yes

Sleepwalking is usually harmless.
However, people can get into trouble by wandering out of their home, falling, running into things. If disturbed during the incident, individuals can become agitated. Sometimes, an underlying sleep problem like sleep apnea or leg twitches (periodic limb movements) can trigger the events. There are behavioral methods in addition to medication. See a doctor.
