leadinglady Posted July 10, 2011 Share Posted July 10, 2011 I have HORRID insomnia. First I was taking Paxil/Seroquel/Benadryl. Couldn't get to sleep. Upped the Seroquel. Couldn't get to sleep. Took away Benadryl, added Ambien (thanks, Mr. smart-psychiatrist-who-knows-I-am-a-recovering-alcoholic-and-won't-prescribe-benzos-but-will-give-me-tons-of-Ambien), fell asleep okay but woke up 2 hours later revved to go and couldn't get back to sleep. Now I'm on 100 mg of Vistaril at night with 200 mg of Seroquel and 50 mg of Paxil and, again, no sleep. Oh, FWIW I've tried Neurontin at night for sleep too AND a Neurontin/Seroquel combination for sleep--which, made me have restless legs and didn't put me to sleep anyway. What gives?! Right now I went back to the Ambien, simply because at least I can initially GET to sleep on it, even if I don't sleep long. Anybody have any idea WTF is going on? I have anxiety, sure, but even people with anxiety need to sleep occasionally! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
