> I'm very interested in this as I suffer both from depression/bipolar related hypersomnia and sleep apnea. I'm finally going to get officially tested for the latter, which I've known I had for years. Being a restless sleeper, I'm doubtful about the equipment solutions to the apnea, and not anxious to have surgery at my age & state of health.

I may need ammunition to convince my GP (currently I am in a pdoc-free zone), as he thinks (probably correctly) that I'm already taking too many different meds.

Hi Tony- I have been using the CPAP machine for sleep apnea for about 6 months now- it takes some getting used to ,but they're really not that bad!There's different styles of CPAPs-and it's SO worth it to get some good quality sleep! My husband and I both use one (romantic-for sure) Now if I could adjust this modafinil to a happy medium-somewhere between asleep and wired!I am slowly working my way up to 200 mgs.-so far above 100 makes my HR high.I'm still waiting for the 'mood brightner' part...Good luck!
