CPAP medication
#1
CPAP medication
Been seeing a commerical on tv for a med called Sunosi. I didn't want to post a link in case it might come across as an ad. 

The med is supposed to increase your daytime energy and alertness. There are side affects as always. Anyone here taking it, or know anything about it? 

The last visit to see my sleep doctor, I told him that I was still tired and listless after being on CPAP now for over two years. He suggested a med to perk me up during the day. I don't recall it being Sunosi, but I declined it. 

I told him I preferred a cat nap when needed. He agreed.

I just saw that ad about 15 minutes ago on TV and went to drugs.com and checked it out--only for info not interest.. Sounds like bad stuff--first use seems to be for narcolepsy.

I find B 12 injections very helpful. I feel like a slug when I wait too long. I don't like pills of needles. Put them off to often, Folly I guess.
