Reader Questions about Sleep Medicine

For the next 10 days, I am asking for reader questions. Please leave any questions about sleep medicine in the comment section. I will try to answer as many of them as possible. I do not guarantee that I will answer all questions. I may rephrase questions to make it clear that I am not practicing medicine when I answer questions. For example, if someone asks "I have an AHI of 95, what would be the best treatment for me?" I might change that to "what are the best treatments for severe sleep apnea?" in my post. I will leave the original question in the comments section unchanged.

Can you talk a bit to how Xyrem is supposed to work? My understanding is it's entirely out of your system in 12 hours after taking it, so how would it help with Cataplexy for the other 12 hours?

Xyrem is the only FDA approved treatment for Cataplexy, and has been approved recently for EDS as well. It is the only proven non-stimulant EDS medicine that I'm aware of for the treatment of EDS. For those PWN who have anxiety issues (like me), a non-stimulant approach is vital to functioning. Do you know if other non-stimulant meds are on the horizon?

Does Ambien affect sleep architecture? If so, how?

I'm hearing a lot from Rozerem reps these days. I now have a Rozerem pen, a Rozerem mug, and some Rozerem notepads. What is your opinion of Rozerem? Thank you.

Dozy, Shrinkette: thanks for your interesting questions. I will finish answering them later this week.
I am going to close this post to new questions. I'll give an opportunity for more questions later in the month.
thanks

How should I take Butalbital? Take Butalbital exactly as directed by your doctor. If you do not understand these instructions, ask your pharmacist, nurse, or doctor to explain them to you.
