Well I've been through most of the threads in this forum looking for someone else who shares my problem, but so far no luck. I don't have any problem at all falling asleep - in fact I have a hard time staying awake after 9PM. My problem is that I will only sleep 2 or 3 hours, then awaken and spend the rest of the night in and out of fitful sleep. By 4AM I'm usually too awake to get any more sleep, but too tired to get up. I take Adderall XR 30mg at 5AM, and another 20mg at 10AM because I get very drowsy by then. I also take Cymbalta before bed. I've tried switching it to AM and it seems like that makes it worse. I've had RLS since I was a kid, but I'm not sure that's causing this problem. I get nightmares with daytime drowsiness from benzos and Lunesta. Ideas anyone?
