I am on Adderall for hypersomnia and take it as soon as i wake up, but it is causing insomnia. Will it eventually stop causing insomnia?
Perhaps none.: Choosing a treatment for sleepiness, fatigue, narcolepsy, etc, depends upon several factors- underlying issues, related conditions, prior attempts at treatment, activity potential/level, &more. I doubt i would use Adderall at all. If med is appropriate, consider Nuvigil first; vyvanse is another possibility. But you need expert professional help to get a solid diagnosis & optimal treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Prregnancy ADHD meds: I see that you have a diagnosis hypersomnia. Has this is been evaluated by an overnight polysomnogram? If it has not, that should be to make sure that the cause is not apnea which would be safely treated with CPAP in pregnancy and which is not uncommonly a cause for adhd symptoms. Unfortunately, in spite of the many years of use of adderall, we do not have an adequate Adderall safety registry so as to advise clearly regarding the use of adderallduring pregnancy. This will need to be discussed between you, your psychiatrist or sleep medicine physician, and your gynecologist. I wish i could provide youwith more detailed information, but unfortunately it is not available. Best wishes for a happy new year and a happy healthy baby. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
