I am starting to think I have sleep apnea from reading the symptoms.I am currently prescribed adderall for ADD, I have been taking this on and off and had stopped taking it last semester, and now I remember why I stopped taking it. When I go to bed after taking adderall I wake up feeling exhausted, I hit my snooze button 10 times! I was too tired to reach over on my table and take my adderall even though it would help wake me up. After being on adderall for 3 days again I have gotten horrible sleep its overwhelming when im off adderall. The worst part is the apnea. Today I had a really freaky thing happen. I was waiting in my car for my friend to get off work and I kept forgetting to inhale. This happened about 10 times and each time was for awhile I would go without breathing
When my friend got in the car I couldn't complete a sentence, I would start the sentence off and as i would finish I could hesitate before coming up with the last word or two ending my sentence. Another thing that scared me is when I tried talking fast I would use random words in place of the words i meant to say. For example if i tried saying out loud "lets go to your house and watch a movie" I SAID "lets go to your house and watch a dryer". I would also very spaced out, I asked my friend a question and she was telling me the answer for about 10 seconds when I realized i wasnt paying attention the whole time even though I asked her!
Please do not think this is the adderall alone, I have just recently started taking the adderall again in the last 3 days and I have noticed before that I forget to breathe when I was not on the adderall. I do however think what happened to me in the car is because the adderall is making my sleep worse. Before that my other symptoms were:
Extremely dry mouth when sleeping, I wake up sometimes and zombie walk to the faucet to drink, or if i had a full cup of water by my bed i would drink it all half awake and go back to bed. I have a very bad gag reflex that is really bad when i wake up. and my neck is very swollen under my chin, i also have restless legs, diagnosed with add (not adhd because I am not hyper)
