scatty Posted January 25, 2009 Share Posted January 25, 2009 I should start by saying that I am currently taking 75 mgs of lamictal in the morning and 300 mgs seroquel and 100 mgs amitriptyline at night. I've been waking up almost every hour for the past 3 or 4 nights. Sometimes I wake up exhausted and can easily fall back to sleep. Other times I am wide awake and can't get back to sleep for hours. I am seeing my new pdoc on Wednesday and hopefully ditch seroquel and go back on risperdal. Not that risperdal was sedating for me, but it worked better as an AP. I don't want to take much more than 100 mgs amitriptyline due to mania concerns and the fact that I become conditioned to whatever dose I'm on. It no longer helps with sleep. I try to stay away from ADs (they don't play nicely with my BP) except for wellbutrin, which, of course is not good for insomnia. When I see my new pdoc I want to be informed. Is there anything that will be sedating, that I won't become conditioned to, that won't send me into mania? Just thought I'd ask what other people's experiences were. Oh yeah, I've already tried trazodone and it didn't work for me. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
