What dosage are you on? and are you taking any daytime stimulants?

hi yawning dog, i’m at 4.0 2x night. i started at 2.25 at the end of Sept. I can take Adderall, 15mg 2x day but i rarely do. if i take any stimulants, it’s probably one per day. The reason I stopped with the Adderall was just to see if the Xyrem was working. I am still Rx’d and can take the Adderall p r n.

I’ll be interested to hear what you make of that. I am sitting here now in a bit of a fog and in the mood to do absolutely nothing even though I need groceries!

I get 3-4 hours of sleep per dose so I sleep from 11:30-7:30 usually. The sleep itself is much better but nothing in the daytime has changed, the fog, sluggishness, sleepiness after eating or too early in the evening to go to bed, etc. Grrrrrr! I have better and longer sleep at this dose and less side effects. Before, I got maybe 1.5 hours of sleep and lots of muscle aches. So I’m staying asleep longer with each dose, wake up ok, but just was expecting more alertness I guess?
