My neurologist thinks it's likely I have narcolepsy although the sleep test wasn't conclusive. I'm not nearly as sure as he is, although a good number of my mother's large family has been diagnosed with narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnia.

I don't think my daytime sleepiness has increased since starting Klonopin, although some of the sleep problems noted in the study (central apnea and reduced stage 3-4 sleep) can be caused by Klonopin. But since I started the Klonopin because I'd wake up at 3 in the morning with anxiety attacks, I'm not sure doing away with it would help my sleep any. :)

Still, I do wonder if I'd need the Provigil without the Klonopin and Depakote (for mood stabilization and migraine prophylaxis). How much is the medication merry-go-round?

Oh well. First things first, I suppose. See if reducing caffeine stops the Provigil from interfering with my sleep. If it does, it might feel more natural (like the Klonopin and Depakote do) and it won't feel as much like I'm popping pills to meet some external standard of productivity.
