therefore, the other chemicals for sleep, serotonin and norepinephrine are not doing their job and I am not getting correct deep sleep and that is why I am having memory problems and lack of energy. Please explain this to me.
Hello galee. Your doctor is correct. L-Methylfoate is vitamin B. Vitamin B feeds the sertonin and norepinephrine channels that help a person to fall asleep. Taking the drug Xyrem acts as a booster in helping you to fall asleep. Regards, pledge
You are missing the key elements to getting deep restorative sleep, Xyrem puts you in that state. They say a person with narcolepsy is like a person who has been awake 72 hrs, within a week Xyrem can fix that for you. Your dr just made it complicated
