I don’t know if there are any studies on it, but I believe they can. I had severe sleep apnea from when I was a teenager and I think it slowly wore me down to the point where I had a break and got schizophrenia in my mid 20s. I can’t go back in time, but I think if my sleep problems were fixed I might not have developed this ■■■■. But nothing I can do about it now.

I have severe insomnia and when I don’t get enough sleep my sz symptoms get a lot worse.
