Hypocretin or Orexin

Post by Scamp on Thu Oct 11, 2012 9:35 pm

Having trouble sleeping?

Heard of hypocretin or orexin?

I've just stumbled across the recent discovery of a neurotransmitter that regulates wakefulness and might be able to address sleep disorders. Here are a couple links:

I'm very interested to hear what doctors have to say about this. Anybody out there care to bring this up the next time they are their doctor and post their feedback on this thread?
