    Good morning, NCFred. Since you were so recently diagnosed and are still finding the best medication dose and schedule, your morning exhaustion could be part of that process. You might want to have a sleep study done to make sure you are getting enough deep REM sleep. I was surprised to discover that I wasn't breathing deeply enough to oxygenate my blood during sleep, which led to daytime sluggishness and sleepiness. Blessings as you navigate your way along the PD path. Dianne

    Hi Fred, Are you getting enough sleep? If not, it might take extra dopamine to get you going. Before I started Trazadone (which has been a miracle drug for me to help with sleep) the mornings were really rough. I'm still slow for the first couple of hours after awakening - it seems like that first dose just takes a little longer. Gardener
