Its likely not from the medicine. I could never stay awake in school. I didn't have any disorders. Just sleep deprived lol you know its bad when you can fall asleep in those hard metal chairs over a metal desk. Lol

~I do not try to give advice as much as I do just point out facts as I have found people like to make their own decisions in life, not be told what one is best to make~


Please excuse my typos. I'm usually on my phone and it has issues.

Have you ever been tested for a sleep disorder or narcolepsy? If I enter a very deep sleep after long deprivation its nearly impossible to wake me. Many disorders can cause this state of sleep at random times. It could possibly be a different neurological problem. You could consult with a neurologist or sleep specialist or just your regular doc.


If your not on drugs at all then just consent to a test and that will clear that up.

Do you get enough sleep at night?
It maybe is stopping the meds - but I think the first thing is sleep at night.

Unfortunately there is a lot of 'could be' with this.
I have delayed phase sleep syndrome, which means
my natural cycle is to be up all night and sleep during
day. So it could be something like that. Or it could be
a throwback to medication you have been on. Whatever
the reason, it taking 30 minutes to wake you up is serious.
Not life threateningly serious, but def a sleep disorder of
some kind that needs to be seriously examined.
