RE: Insomnia in the elderly with apnea?
Since Primary MD and Sleep Dr could not prescribe anything that worked, I went to a psychiatrist who prescribed Xanax to go to sleep and 10mg Prozac to "level out". He said that I had a "whiff of Hypomania", but he in no way thought it to be dysfunctional. I actually like having his designation!

Another DR had prescribed 20mg of Adderall twice a day for my ADD. I have only been taking 10mg once in the morning to get going. On the internet I don't see any drastic complications in these small doses, but do want to run this cocktail past the Shrink.
