Lightbulb Why was I sort of convulsing while taking a nap?

I'm on Amph generic 15mg (used to be on Adderall XR and various medications before that) and what I notice is that I sometimes convulse or like jolt when I try to take a nap.

Out of embarrassment, I didn't share it to my doc but I will. I wonder if anyone had a similar experience? I'm not sure if this is separate but since I lacked sleep and felt pretty lethargic in the morning, I sometimes force myself to sleep or even relapse (pornography/masturbation) on some occasion, 70-80 percent I can fall right asleep into a semi-deep 15minute quick recharge. After this, I'm all perfect and I can even lack the complete 6-7 hours of sleep.

Even without relapsing, I feel some sort of euphoric movement in my head. My thoughts can go from a to d real quick and it's sort of like some kind of dream where I am aware.

This is after an hour or two taking the meds. Anyone had something similar with other meds?

I'm a bit concerned. Is this bad?

Re: Why was I sort of convulsing while taking a nap?

Is it usually a single jolt that you feel?

Could be a hypnic (hypnogogic) jerk -- very common, and not anything to worry about.

The medication could be affecting how often it occurs, or how aware you are of it.

Don't hesitate to bring it up with your doctor if you're concerned.
