Have had EDS since puberty. Diagnosed with apnea 6 months ago with sleep study and AHI of 32. Using c-pap for 6 months and AHI now usually.between 2-4 with occasional AHI of 4-6. Have stretches of 1-4 consecutive days of falling asleep at my desk for 20-50 minutes. Have been on Provigil for 3 months at 200 mg morning and noon with no real difference. Any ideas on where to go with me sleep Dr? Compliant with c-pap and meds but still at times overcome with a wave of sleepiness that I cannot beat. Blood work all normal. Propanalol dose dropped from 80md Extended dose to 20 md At bedtime with no improvement.
