I was not sure this was the right section for this post…let me know and I can move it. I have the opposite of what most people who post on the sleep section have….borderline narcolepsy I take 20 mg Adderall a day to combat it. Its not considered a very high dose but its enough to make someone without excessive sleepiness stay awake for days. I have been on it for about 9 yrs. It does not cause me any problems or interfere with my sleep. I sleep about 8 hrs a night, no problems getting to sleep or staying asleep either. My doc gave me an herbal tincture a couple of months ago that was a heart/BP mix with hawthorn and I started getting very sleepy even after taking my adderall. I didn't realize it had valerian in it and that that could increase my sleepiness so I stopped it and within days the sleepiness stopped. I am treating lyme, bartonella & babesia with ABX and herbal tinctures. After being on Rifampin for about 3 mos. I began to get very fatigued and found out it can mess with your adrenals so I decided to stop it. Then I began taking and herbal tincture for my adrenals with Eleuthero & Rhodiola. Have been on it for 3 weeks with no problems. The other herbs I'm on for Lyme & CO. are Cryptolepis, Sida Acuta, Japanese Knotweed. I have been on the crypt.& sida for almost a year The only new thing I have added, about a week ago is Japanese Knotweed. I have taken it in the past without problems Started Doxycycline about 2 mos ago. For the last 2 days even after 20 mg of Adderall I can not keep my eyes open. It seriously interferes with my life…..things like driving to the store are almost impossible. I don't want to increase my Adderall. I need to pick this apart and see which of the things I take could have the potential to cause this. Let me know if anyone has any ideas in the mean time maybe I should post this on either the Lyme section or perhaps the Genetic &SNP section. In the meantime I'm going to try a No-Doz caffeine pill as a temporary fix.
