Poor Chris, it's sure no fun being sleepy all the time. I was always battling a strong desire to crawl back to bed & sleep. Of course, when I'm working there's no bed nearby so I spent my working time (even when actively working) yawning & wiping tears from my eyes from yawning so much. Like you, I could still sleep on Dexedrine - not always but if I was sleepy enough, I could sleep right throught the dose. It never prevented me from falling asleep but it did keep me more alert & if I was busy, I wouldn't want to fall asleep then.

Adrafinil sure keeps me going now. Today, I worked about the place, lots of up & down the stairs active work. I had music going & regularly stopped to dance with certain songs. Went off to work this afternoon/evening shift & was VERY busy (I think I can outwalk anyone at work). I'm getting tired now but it's 12:40 AM - I should be now! My energy has never been a problem, but I didn't have this much stamina before. It's a great feeling.

Blithering on again... back to the question you asked. The euphoria I felt on Dexedrine wasn't a mania at all but a good, pleased elated feeling, sort of benevolent to everyone. Stupid or thoughtless people didn't get on my nerves & I felt very cheerful. Just much more magnanimous in general. Maybe my definition of euphoria isn't everyone's.

I agree with Zo. Have you looked into the possiblity you might have narcolepsy? It ranges in a spectrum from very severe to mildly.
