jas-

I hoep you've had an overnight sleep study (PSG) to determine if you don't have any other issues, etc. Also, there's a lot of treatments for RLS, Klonopin being a very popular one. Call your doc. He may decide to adjust your bedtime dose.

As for waking up too late, it sounds like you have reduced energy levels, even if it's only in the AM. Sleep studies may help find something like apnea-- which Klonopin can induce/worsen- which make you more tired. I have mild sleep apnea without meds, and now take Klonopin.

All along I've taken BiPAP. I'm a sckrony 21 year old, so my GP claimed I didn't have apnea, but ignored her, went to a top neurologist in Boston, who dx'd me with it because I had a small Ear, Nose and Throat airway.

The CPAP or BiPAP machine controls any apnea, organic or drug-induced. It should help you feel refreshed. Try also talking about Provigil, although can't justify stimulants just to make you feel energized in the A.M. Cymbalta may help your AM energy.

All I know about life before depression is this: I would wake up a couple of hours before class (7:30am)- get ready slowly, eat breakfast, enjoy the AM prep, and look forward to things. Now I got class so I can stay in school and not be forced off of my dorm room. If a drug can let me feel like there's some purpose, and some reason, to get up in the AM, I'm not going to be too stubborn about trying it out. I need hope. I can endure a lot, but there's only so much I can take.
