Hello. I had a sleep study last night and a nap study today to find out if I have idiopathic hypersomnia. I will sleep anywhere from 15 to 18 hours a day on a daily basis. I also have suffered RLS since I was in grade school and as an adult am now experiencing akathasia due to being misdiagnosed and put on a bi polar medication for a long period of time called zyprexa. My doc has since told me I am not bi polar just depressed and said I just sleep all the time from my depression and to block trials and tribulations of everyday life. I don't necessarrily feel depressed and no depression medication has ever helped me. I have been put on adderall to help me get through day by day by staying awake but find myself getting very agitated and hostile....awake, but no motivation to do a simple chore. I heard provigil is also prescribed for this with a little less aggitation and nervousness or being extremly hostile. Is it better to sleep my life away and constantly be degraded as NOBODY understands or to be awake on these medications severly aggitated????? My question may strike people in the wrong way as I know the abuse, addiction problems and severity of major health issues including death from pain medications. I had a severe car accident and 3 pulmonary embolisms, bulging discs in my neck and severe back pain that is pretty much resolved....but hydrocone 10's for me, get me up, motivate me and I do things I love to do. However, it does not keep you awake as long as adderall and would have to take another pill within several hours. Help me anybody????? I'm tired of sleeping my life away, I am going to lose my family. I have already lost my job, motivation to do anything at all, my personal hygiene;which is totally not like me, my passion to live. I need help??????
