The excessive daytime sleepiness disorder:

I'm taking 400 mg Provigil each morning. It increased my anxiety, one of the reasons I needed to up my Xanax dose. However, it does work fairly well. It subtly allows my to be fairly awake and coherant during the day. I don't feel spectacular, always tired, but this is to be expected as a PA student, but I'm no longer sleeping 18 hours/day. I'm OK with continuing this as prescribed.

The Sleep Disorder- Chronic Insomnia:

We increased my Lunesta to 3mg a couple of months ago. It works OK, but not great, too bad they don't make a 4mg. On my days where I have 12 hours of classes + studying, I'm out like a light. On lighter 8-10 hours days and my lazy, I'm not getting out of bed weekends, I don't always sleep til 1-2AM, then sleep way too late and waste my day. I could continue with this, don't want to make too make complaints and requests at once. If need be, I'll supplement/self-medicate with OTC meds (yuck... that's when I oversleep, but it's better than never sleeping).
