This question is really old but I think it might be helpful to others if I can answer it. I too have had flu like symptoms while taking Xyrem. They both happened right after I had increased the dosage based on my doctor's recommendation. Once I backed off and spent a few more weeks at the lower dosage I was able to slowly (VERY slowly) increase my dosage to the point that it was working more effectively. To put it in context, it's been 6 months and I'm still not at the original recommended dosage that my doctor suggested I be at (9mg) at the 1 month mark. Hope that makes sense.
