Racer, I've been reading back through old posts on "excessive daytime sleepiness" and "cymbalta," and your name came up a lot :) Did you find anything to actually help it? I am taking 60mg Cymbalta at bedtime. My PDOC recently gave me some Provigil samples, and I just took my first one (at noon after a 2 hour nap).

Typical day: I wake up when my alarm goes off at 6 feeling pretty good, no matter how little or much sleep I've had. But sometime between 9 and 11 I will start feeling sleepy. I will lie down for a nap, and might fall asleep or be bothered by the phone and give up. If I don't nap then, I'll definitely nap around 1 or 2. I usually start feeling better by 5 or 6 pm, but by then I am devoted to making dinner and taking care of family and cannot get anything else done. Get to bed late, say 11 or 12, because I've napped so much during the day.

I am tickled to no longer feel depressed and that I can concentrate now, but I can't get anything done for work or school. It looks like I will have to take a fail in the grad class I took over the summer, and which I took an incomplete in. Tomorrow is the deadline to turn everything in, and I'm not done yet.
