yup that 'll be it, if you sleep a lot during the day it will affect nightime sleep , and if hes lessening the dose that will not help either ,ask him if  if he has a prescription that will keep you awake during the day . You'll feel better .

I bet you will, I know that even supplements can have a similar affect I was taking 5HTP it really works makes you feel great but with side effects after a while you have to take a break, I found I was dreaming all the time ,I dint like it, so I stopped them and the dreams stopped, but then I took them again later, I think if one takes anything for a while it has some effect..at the moment I am taking something called Sernity formula..makes you feel great it has the herb Rhodiola in it, I havent had any effects yet, so I have asked the good and learned folks on the Alternative therapy forum if they know anything about it...
