    I have excessive sleepiness and fall asleep within seconds. I started with 50 mg, then 100 mg, now 200 mg and unfortunately this is not working as well (some of the time). When it does work however, I feel like I use to and can keep up with daily living.

My 1st sleep study was about 20 yrs ago and was told it was "a sleep apnea". The drug prescribed had one side effect, cariovascular disease. So, then I had high cholesteral and the drug was taken o ... Show Full Comment
