I am thinking of asking my pdoc for Ambien or something to help me get better quality sleep. Even though the Latuda, Risperdal, Trileptal combo I am taking makes me very tired and puts me to sleep, I have trouble ‘staying’ asleep because of the restlessness. I’m taking Risperdal and Latuda because I’m weaning off the Risperdal and onto the Latuda but the two together are awful. He gave me Vistaril to help with the restlessness and it helps a little but not enough.
Anyone here have trouble sleeping due to restlessness and do you take anything for it?
I seem to have that problem recently. I just lay in bed for what seems like hours and according to others they can hear me snore. But I don’t remember any of it and it seems like I keep waking up if I do sleep. Right now I’m on 150 mg of trazodone. I don’t feel an effect but I’ve heard it takes weeks to work. However I have been on it before and it has worked. I am getting some hours of sleep so I’m not scared I will die of exhaustion like how I was when I stayed awake for 5 days straight.
Im grateful to have it because not getting sleep can make you psychotic and give horrid symptoms.
So if one is having a “rough patch” one can take that as a aid for a while.
A day or so might be enough.
