Yes, especially when we don't know when the next episode will happen.

Randy,
I learned somewhere that Epidolex contributes to Insomnia. My seizures have been controlled, but I am up at 4:20 AM becuse I am worried about a good number of things. Both my Conservator and I messed up on a number of things. I apparently snor loudly. Two of my siblings have Sleep Apnea, but it has never been mentioned to me. I see so many doctors someone might have noticed.
