User avatar Hello Imran -

Your brother's talking in his sleep, while apparently rather loud, is not otherwise unusual. A doctor may be able to think of some medication that might reduce the incidence of the problem, but it probably is something those affected will have to learn to deal with.

Good luck to you with this.
