So I am in quite a nasty situation. Over 3 months ago I was able to kick my addiction to heroin with therapy and Suboxone. Also, I successfully got my bipolar II under control with Lithium ER 900mg and Seroquel XR 300mg. For the last 6 weeks I am having fragmented sleep. I am able to fall asleep relatively easily only to wakeup after 2hrs. I then go back to sleep and from then on I wake up roughly 5 times a night. I've eliminated all caffeine from diet, I don't smoke cigarettes within 2hrs of bed and I don't watch TV or use any other screen before retiring. My addiction specialist has tried me on trazadone 150mg--did nothing Doxepin 75-150mg--only makes me sleeoy Ambien CR (w/ doxepin)--barely any change. I think it slightly improves the quality of sleep in between waking up. Does anyone have any recommendations for a sleep maintenance medication? I prone to rapid weight gain from AP's and dont want to double up as I am taking quetiapine already. For what it's worth....my sleep hygiene is very good. I've started exercising in the morning before work. I work as a credit analyst and sit in front of a computer from 9 to 5. HOWEVER...my insomnia is causing me to nod off at my desk which is unacceptable. Any tips/ideas/recommendatins are welcome. Mikl_pls I'm looking your way as you are the resident amateur psychopharmacologist. ;-)
Hello- I am a 43yearold male. Lifetime serious depression. Have been taking 15mg daily Deplin for a few weeks now (many years on Zoloft w/o much benefit). Anyway I really cannot say if the Deplin is working because I have been trying to taper down off of Suboxone at the same time (2 years Suboxone total, 6mg for the last year before tapering). Well I am right now in the middle of the HELL of Suboxone withdrawal (day 2) and am wondering if I should skip or take the Deplin. A lot of people complain it makes them energetic or anxious, and that is the last thing I need right now as I am going out of my skin with anxiety, depression, major Suboxone withdrawal. I already feel like I'm going to die and don't want to take anything that could make it worse, but also don't want to skip Deplin if it could help. Just looking for any advice...THANK YOU VERY MUCH
