Although I have always required more sleep than most people I know, the condition has gotten progressively more sever over the past 4 years. I am now sleeping 12 hours per night with two 1 to 2 hour naps required during the day.
From this study (2 years ago):
I'm experiencing extreme exhaustion over 12 hours after taking 2mg dose; sometimes to point of nodding off whilst driving. I'm pregnant with severe chronic migraines. I'm taking this as an alternative to narcotics (necessary in last pregnancy). I'll try to post an update in a few weeks to see if I build a tolerance or if the symptoms are reduced.
