I was on Prodigal and Nuvigil for excessive daytime sleepiness for years. Medicare has decided I do not have the diagnosis (obstructive sleep apnea due to work hours, narcolepsy etc) and won't cover it anymore. My doctor first put me on Ritalin but 1) It decreases my appetite and I have problems with weight loss. I lose weight fast. 2) It makes me awake and alert for about 3 hours then I crash.
So Doc decided to give Wellbutrin XL. It seems it's made me depressed and it seems to keep my excessive daytime sleepiness stable for about 5 hours then I'm sleepy again.
There are not many drugs for excessive daytime sleepiness.
