    Sleep disorders

    I have read that many others also have sleep problems and extreme difficulty waking up in the morning. I too am struggling with this. The worst was this morning when i didnt wake up to take my kids to school. When i woke up enough, it was 11am. I was very worried about the fact that this may be happening more and this scares me. I have been diagnosed with primary hypersomnia and have tried nuvigil, and am now taking adderral, which helps me stay awake during the day but my biggest problem now is waking up in the morning on time. Any suggestions ?
