Very Very Tired

Recommended Posts

Doctor, I'm a 65 year old man and I sleep 3-4 hours per night but not good resting sleep and the next day I'm very very tired and I don't have the energy to do little jobs around the house and I want to stay home all the time. I have to take small naps during the day. I also, have vivid dreams. I had a sleep study and they said it was ok, but I know I didn't sleep but about 3 hours. Listed are the medicines and vitamins I take. My wife and i would greatly appreciate any information you may give us. I also have restless legs and arms.


One metoprolol 50mg per day

One to two omeprazole 20mg per day

One sertraline 100mg per day

Two to three klonopin 1mg per day

Look at the last post for your answer. You may also want to adjust the timing of the simvastatin to 1 hour before or 2 hours after taking the sinemet.
