Avatar m tn Hypersomnia is sometimes misdiagnosed as narcolepsy where a person experiences a sudden onset of sleepiness.

Avatar m tn today after lunch with the girls, I got a voicemail from someone threatening to sue me. Of course, I was shocked, stressed, depressed. Felt like a **** magnet - cried and cried and cried. I haven't cried like that since... since my brother passed away - ok, that crying was worse. But I haven't cried continuously as I did today - took an anti sychotic to destress me, slept most of the later afternoon and evening.
Avatar n tn Hello, Dizziness is a side effect of the drug Phenteramine but it causes difficulty in sleeping rather than increased sleepiness.

Avatar m tn My husband is taking clonazepam .05, Lomtrigine 200 mg and pramipexole dihydrochloride 0.25 for depression, anxiety and RLS. He hasn't been able to get out of bed lately and has missed a lot of work. Could this excessive sleepiness be due to the combination of these drugs?

Avatar f tn I’m also tired a lot of the time – fatigue and sleepiness is a symptom of anxiety. Lately my stomach has been getting upset (very unusal for me), usually around 4-5pm each day. I wonder if this is because I am going home soon, and don’t think I will be able to meet my expectations for myself at home. I think my adhd is a main cause of my depression – the knowledge that I don’t have the ability to accomplish the things I think I should be able to accomplish weighs on me every single day.

That being said, I can't, in all honesty, say exactly when the sleep problems began.
