> Snoring and exhaustion are often symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea where your airway closes during sleep. People with this often report Nocturia too. If it is OSA I don't know whether Nardil could have made this worse or not. If the Nardil caused weight gain that certainly could make OSA worse or the timing could be a coincidence. Tell your GP about the loud snoring, falling asleep at your desk and the nocturia all at the same time - that should prompt him to consider sleep apnea.

Thanks for the suggestion Jane. He discounted OSA since I'm not overweight and he said that that is almost always the case with OSA. He also discounted central sleep apnea on the basis that it is very, very rare. Not the most scientific of rationale but I'm willing to go with it.
He did give me a referral to an ENT specialist if I want to have it looked at further.
I'm just beginning to think that there's nothing seriously wrong, it's just that Nardil puts me into a deeper/different sleep where I snore more loudly and frequently.
