Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

taking kilovance would not cause you this severe fatigue

you need more testing.

you need thyroid hormone testing, TSH, free T4, and iron and ferritin levels, and also vitamin D levels.

you may need another sleep study

this would not be a typical reaction to kilovance medication

let me know if you have questions.

I forgot to mention that I've had blood tests and they were fine. Thyroid etc.

what is your height and weight?

do you snore?

you may need mores testing to test the other levels I mentioned.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

patients who are overweight and snore have a higher risk of having sleep apnea.

if you don't get more testing, you may not find out why you are so fatigued.

I'm not overweight and have a mouth guard for tmj so yes snoring does occur.

Are you saying that Kilovance isn't the cause?

yes, I am saying the kilovance is most likely not the cause of your severe fatigue and sleepiness.
