    I do have narcolepsy and I take 120 mg of Adderall daily.  I still want to sleep all of the time. How can I change this?  What is too much sleep?

    Narcolepsy treatment is a tough road to navigate but I would go back to my doctor and discuss the possibility of (a) timing the medication in specific doses during the day to see if you can impact the desire to sleep on a scheduled "taking drug" basis.  You also need to see if he has other treatments that he can offer or whether a referal to a physician who deals with sleep/narcolepsy issues specifically is in order.

    Before you treat with medication to keep yu awake, I strongly suggest you find the cause. It could be chronic fatigue, anemia, or depression or any number of other ailments. Get a COMPLETE physical and have lots of blood work done including checking your red and white blood cell level and vitamin and mineral levels, as well as hormones.
