BIRMINGHAM - AL -

More American adults say, they have problems with sleepwalking.

That's from a new study by Stanford University.

More than eight million U.S. adults experience sleepwalking.

That's about 3.6 percent of the population.

Nearly one out of three Americans say,  they've been caught sleepwalking at least once.

The study found use of over the counter sleep aids increased the likelihood of sleepwalking in some adults.
