I don't remember exactly when this has started up but I've become pretty bad at getting any sleep at night and if i do it's 1-2 hours max. It's interfering with my life because not only do i stay up all night, but I'm usually up during the day because of events or me trying to get this pattern back on track. But when night time comes around I find that I'm wide awake and have a hard time sleeping. And then I get anxious because i know I should be sleeping because it's going to be hard to carry through the day with any activities. (I do get a bit tired in the afternoon)
For example, right now, its 3:54 AM and my family planned a fun day trip tomorrow, we'd be leaving the house around 7:30 AM and be gone all day. I'm feeling quite anxious because i got 2 hours of sleep the night before this, and today I've only napped for 30 minutes. I don't know what is up with me. My family doesn't know, they've mentioned my eyes being darker than usual but i shrugged it off. And I haven't taken any meds, I'm not a fan of them but if I have to I just might.
Which antipsychotic gives your the best?. So you take it to go to bed and you wake up feeling refreshed.
Olanzapine is said to increase slow wave sleep. risperidone is also said to do this but many say they wake up feeling bad.
Which is the best antipsychotic out of them all that gives you the best sleep? .
Hi all, Which antipsychotic before bed will make you sleep & will make you feel the MOST REFRESHED in the morning? Thanks.By snow_
Which antipsychotic or antihistamine/anticholinergic before bed will make you sleep & will make you feel the MOST REFRESHED in the morning?
Also, maybe not many will, but is there any anticholinergic,antihistamine or antipsychotic that you could take a high dose around 7pm and fall asleep straight away?.
I'm new here, but thought I'd get some opinions. I get bouts of insomnia where I can't sleep until 4-5am and sleep maybe 5-6 hours a night. These seem to last roughly 5-7 days although I have had them longer. I am currently charting to see if there is a pattern. However, I also have the problem of oversleeping when I am not in a state of insomnia! I am getting a sleep study done soon, but won't have results for a while since the Doctor is away. Why do I have both insomnia and hypersomnia? Any thoughts? It seems like I can never get any restorative sleep.
I guess I should also mention that I am bipolar and have anxiety/panic attack issues as well.
I'm starting this topic because I'm curious about the connection between psychosis/hearing voices and dreams, specifically lucid dreams.
Now I don't have lucid dreams very often but when I do I'm always interacting with my voices (who, if I believed my previous delusions, are telepathic communications of people I know IRL) in their physical form in a virtual, dream-like plane. My voices would have me believe that everyone lucid dreams all the time (except for me) and it's a way of interacting with other voices telepathically albeit with physical manifestations of each other. It can often be a way of two people having intimate, sexual experiences with each other without being in the same physical location of one another.
I once had one dream which revealed what would then go on to be a deeper delusion where all my voices were in fact talking to each other via a text-based instant-messaging-like program (eg. IRC).
Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this? ie. where some dreams involve interacting with their voices in a more "up close & personal" way?
EDIT: I forgot I posted about this already nearly a year ago Seeing the voices as an IRC style chat program so apologies for the repost
