In brief: Delayed sleep phase
This is a circadian rhythm sleep disorder affecting the timing of sleep and peak period of alertness.
People with dspd generally fall asleep some hours after midnight and have difficulty waking up in the morning. Bright light in the morning and melatonin in the evening can help.
