I went to my sleep doc today and the only thing i have left to try is xyrem. I've been putting it off because it honestly freaks me out. I have sleep apnea, my nose usually gets stuffy, I will be living alone very soon, and i have to admit im a social drinker. So im nervous that when i move into an apartment all by myself that there is no one else there to make sure im still breathing or arousable. what if there is a fire? or someone breaks in? or calls me because of an emergency? My nose usually gets stuffy at night and the morning but I am still able to use my cpap if its not completely blocked but one of the side effects of xyrem is nasal congestion. I dont trust myself to NOT take off my mask in the middle of the night if my nose gets stuffed up. So i know you can't drink alcohol when ur taking ur xyrem but what about like a drink with dinner? anything? Also I was wondering if anyone has taken their xyrem to sleep during the day because they work at night. Im having such a hard time even finding a nursing job that im starting to apply for the night shift which is 7pm to 7am. which means i would be screwing up my sleep schedule (and if i get rotating shifts then one week i would be working mornings and the next week i'd be working nights, no one is gonna give a new grad all morning shifts, were lowest on the totem pole). if i have a night shift then i would have to sleep during the day of and the day after my shift when i get off at 7am. has anyone played with this? should i ask the xyrem people when they call me?
