I don't have hypersomnia. I actually had insomnia prior to taking Contrave. Now I sleep great. However, Contrave did make me horribly sleepy in the beginning. I would get up frequently and take short walks. I took B-12. And I pushed through. Now, that effect seems to be gone for the most part. My experience with taking this medication is the most of the side effects go away after a period of time. Hope this helps!
