Has anybody here tried Seriphos?

Disclaimer: I am not a salesman of that product.
Background: Very sleepy during day, but feel good during the night and most of the nights I have disturbed sleep. Going paleo helped a little bit, but I was still very sleepy during the day. Sleep doctor after multiple sleep studies told me its idioipathic hypersomnia. Basically he couldn't figure out what the problem was and told me I could take nuvigil. I refused. Life was getting miserable since I had to join internship at a new place and just couldn't stay awake during work, including the first day. They were taking us around and when I got a chance to sit down, I fell asleep. Had to do something.
I always suspected its a cortisol issue but the doc had brushed it away. Then I found this product called Seriphos which is supposed to contain Serine/Ethanolamine, no idea what it is. After reading a surprising number of positive reviews, I decided to try (mostly because I was desperate for help). I took one pill in the night but couldn't sleep well, it was clear it was stimulating me. So I started taking it in the morning and I notice that it makes a big difference, I am alert during the day and feel really good (sometimes too energetic), no more sleepy and I can 'think'. So my questions are:

  1. Has anybody tried it?
  2. It is supposed to reduce excess cortisol, but I thought my cortisol is low during the day and taking this seems to help me feel better?
  3. Any problem if I take with coffee?
  4. I generally take during weekdays and then stop during weekends, seems to work well this way. Should I instead be taking daily?

Sleep was restful, but I think the effects seem to fade away and so after 5 days I stop it during weekends and start during weekdays. I think the combination of Seriphos at 9am + coffee + skipping breakfast has been a 'life saver' to me, for the past three weeks!!

How was your sleep at night?

I can't really tell with it and I have been taking it for a month or so. I started taking it before bed and it worked for a few nights, then I think it started stimulating me. So now I take it post work out in the afternoon to lower post workout cortisol... no problems there. Not sure if I notice benefits though, maybe a bit better clarity?

you should go to a naturopath and get a cortisol saliva panel so see what your cortisol is doing throughout the day. this will tell you when your cortisol is high and low and when to take the seriphos.

It gave me never-ending nightmares. I will try taking them early in the day.
