Benzo's need for stimulant - sleep apnea?

Posted by RobertDavid on January 3, 2006, at 1:27:32

Social anxiety is my main issue and klonopin works good for it. I have been searching for something to help me with energy during the day. I'm not particularly depressed, just no zest for doing tasks and tired when I shouldn't be.

My doc asked me if I snore or if anyone has noticed that I hesitate breathing at night. I was told I do to some degree.

So I'm being tested for sleep apnea. He says if you have it you'll be tired during the day which would explain why provigil or a little coffee helps, but anti depressants don't.

It runs in families, my brother was tested and has a severe case. Now he sleeps with a devise that shoots air in his nose (which seems like a pain), but he says he has 40% more energy, feels great.

So I'm being tested and there's a side to me that wants to have it so I can feel better. Just end this ongoing search for feeling manageable.

Anyway, though this may not be my answer my guess is it could be the missing piece of the puzzle to others with the same complaints.

Just a thought. I'll post my results to the apnea test. It's all covered by Kaiser so what the heck.
