Does lack of REM sleep lead to ADHD and could Strattera further complicate things?

ADHD is a genetic trait that is present at birth. It is the way a person's brain is wired. It allows people to think quickly, learn by doing, excel under pressure.

In adults with lack of REM sleep, often a Sleep Study will reveal various degrees of sleep apnea. People with this affliction may stop breathing as often as every 45-seconds, through the night. Thus, they awaken feeling drained, fatigued, and often with a dull headache from oxygen deprivation.

Strattera merely helps an ADD/ADHD person maintain focus. The drug also tends to interrupt ejaculatory function in men. However, Strattera should not interfere with REM sleep.

Not sure on this, however worms can present health risks such as anemia and being lethargic among others. The needed anesthesia could intensify these or complicate things further. Best bet is to rid the cat of worms first.

The opposite could be to make more difficult or complex, which is to complicate.
