I’m not sure it’s common with ADHD but more common than for those without ADHD. I’m like you, I wake up much more tired and out of it than when I went to bed. I suspect we as the others have mentioned have a sleeping disorder of some type. I’ve ruled out sleep apnea and believe mine could be Delayed Sleep phase disorder. I feel like, I wake up for some reason during my deep REM sleep. I feel my best physically and mentally at night as well.

It would take me half to all day just to finally feel awake. About a year ago, I started getting up 1 hour before I want or need to be up and take my adderall. I quickly go soundly back to sleep and wake up an hour later feeling amazingly more rested and much more awake and alert. It’s been a game changer for me. I can be a morning person even though I don’t want to be one.
