Kathleen, I agree with your doctor. I myself had a sleep study in the past. I was very sleepy during the day and fall asleep many times. In my case it was one of my meds that I was taking, Effexor. I switched to a new drug and my sleep was much better. How late to you take your phentermine? Being a stimulant, it might overide the Tylenol PM (by the way, you can take generic Benedryl-it has the same ingredient - diphenhydramine). You mentioned that your had "dreams which linger in my thoughts throughout the day". Do you ever nod off during the day, and if so, do you dream before you close your eyes? I am not sure of the technical term, but this can be a symptom of narcolepsy. There are two test that can be performed, one for sleep apnea and one for narcolepsy. I tested negative for both. Do you snore? Typical characteristic of sleep apnea. It can be hard to tell how well one sleeps at night. I felt I was sleeping well until the sleep study showed that I only had 15 minutes of REM sleep. Bottom line, do the sleep study as a diagnostic tool to determine what the problem might be, it's a great starting point. By the way, I cannot imagine 3 kids under the age of 6. My wife and I have a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 month old and it is a full time job by itself. Also, I don't think you are losing your mind. Blessings!
