because it sometimes doesnt work the seroquel

Do you exercise regularly? An evening workout before bedtime really helps me. It’s when I do a tai chi routine if I have time.

Try drinking coffee throughout the day and at night try an OTC like Valerian root or Melatonin 4 sleep.

I’m on the highest dose of Invega and this helps counter the insomnia throughout the day.

Seroquel gave me midnight hunger after a week of taking it.

So now I just take 3mg melatonin


I don’t know what will work for you,

But I do not recommend trying Ambien.

I’m on it and it only helps you sleep for a couple hours and also makes you do dumb things.


1.5mg of clonazepam is the only thing that works for me, but I already explained that to you in your other thread.

Neither do I, It was useless, it put me to sleep for about 4 hours and then after 3 days I developed a tolerance to it and it didn’t work at all.

I’ve heard about that, sleep walking, cooking, driving, etc… I didn’t experience that but I wasn’t on it very long for the above reason

Quetiapine, olanzapine, whatever benzo works for you or melatonin. Maybe magnesium would help as well idk.

I take Mirtazapine 30mg for sleep. For me, it works like a charm keeping me asleep for the full night. I sometimes take Ativan 1mg if I have trouble settling for any reason. And Prazosin 1mg keeps my nightmares away, so I stay asleep.

Let me tell you my point on this problem. I suffered from insomnia for several years, and I could only treat it when I found the right help. Insomnia is not a thing to laugh at, and, of course, it is not a thing to ignore.

Typically, we like to leave inactive threads alone and just start a new thread instead. This is different than how some forums are run, but we do it this way because it frequently upsets users to have old topics revived when they are no longer relevant. It can also be frustrating to the person who revived the thread when they don’t get a reply, because the original poster is no longer active or no longer finds the topic relevant. Feel free to start a new thread on this topic.

There are a lot of ways to cure insomnia.
