Yes. That MSLT is invalid -- Effexor is a REM suppressant, and you should have been off it. As a matter of fact, you have to be off all hypnotics, stimulants, and anti-depressants for SIX MONTHS. It takes six months for sleep EEG to normalize, and even then sometimes it never does. You have to keep yourself awake between naps, even it means slapping yourself against the face continuously. It is for these reasons my sleep doc no longer does MSLTs.

No problem. Plus, for some people, Effexor makes them even sleepier than they would be otherwise. It did that with me.
