Sea dancer yes! Falling asleep as you drive: UGH.
Also everyone , I did ask about
provigil when they prescribed it for me. I only took it once so I have no experience to say how well it works. But i did ask about
long term tolerance. they said that 200mg was very low and it can go much higher so not to even worry about
the sleepy @ driving time. My docs did a different idea on that part. Instead of Provigil for that the got together and talked about
how to Enforce 8full hours of sleep. Ambien didnt work, vallium didnt work and so on. But ambien CR did. Because its 12.5 mgs instead of 10, and becasuse its time released to not only help you to get to sleep but to remain there. Then with the provigil after a full 8hrs sleep the driving fear has almost gone.
There are still days I have to avoid driving but not nearly what it used to be. Before I was hitting curbs. Got pulled over for swaying and had to take the road test again! Also pls get your b12 checked as this can also attribute to this. Mine was low and getting b12 injections helps. Adding gatorade followed by 2 glasses of same size w/water x 3 daily was told to my daughter in iraq and WOW it works. the electrolytes give you energy and of course not nearly enough for CFS but with 8full hrs of sleep, Provigil at correct mg, and the gatorade , I've found a place of relief. I have suffered for about
3yrs now and I've found that its never one medicine alone but a combination of all things.
Hope things get better, i totally can relate to the driving thing!
Every day brings us closer to what we reach for .........in all things.
