Has anyone heard of this? I recently read an article on sleep disturbance with ADD on the ADDitude magazine website. If you havent read it you can here.
The concept of intrusive sleep really hit home with me. For the longest time, I havent been able to just sit with my wife and watch tv with her at night. After an hour or so, myhead will start to bob and I will be asleep soon after. This also will occur while driving at night. Its really pretty scary. The idea is that when the activity is not holding your attention(especially in those who exibit hype-focus), your brain goes off in search of stimuli and you fall asleep. I read this after seing my doctor and starting my Concerta prescription. In fact the doc said one side effect that bothers many was trouble falling asleep and my response to him was that maybe I would be able to stay awake a little longer. I have been on the Concerta for three weeks and so far, it has really cut down on this problem. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of this or experienced it.
