I tried to sleep 2 hours ago. Wasn’t at all sleepy, more bored. Anyway after an hour of tossing and turning and basically convincing my self that I would never find peace I got up. I had some tea and toast and put the telly on.
Am a lot more content now. Lesson? Don’t force sleep folks.
Sounds like me when my insomnia hits. I spend a lot of time in bed pretending I’m sleepy. Lol
Lol. Thing is I only woke at 2:30pm today so had only been awake 7 hours! Don’t really need sleep in such circumstances.
It’s interesting that you are on Seroquel and it isn’t regulating your sleep cycle. Maybe you have built up a tolerance over time?
I fall asleep at the same time everyday on 400mg Xr. On second thought it could be my morning med which is putting me to sleep.
Hey. You are right. Have totally built up sleep tolerance to seroquel. Doesn’t make me drowsy at all. I sometimes wonder if it is even working on my psychosis either.
Just try going off it for a little while and watch the fireworks.
I go to sleep at the same time and wake up at roughly the same time every day. My meds make me sleepy. My slee is med regulated. Before I became MI and was on antipsychotics, I used xanax and melatonin to sleep. I slept like a baby. I miss it, lol, but my current pdoc would never prescribe xanax or ambien or anything like that. I sleep well enough, just not like a rock like a used to.
Before MI my body regulated sleep pretty good. Sleep disturbances was the start of my illness
The problem with that for me is that I always have a hard time falling asleep, and when I don’t get enough I’m sleepy the next day.
That’s one of the inconveniences of living in a group home. We can’t be up and about after 11p.m.
same here. was suppose to go somewhere this morning. couldn’t sleep. turns out my brother’s orange soda has caffeine.
funny, he rarely offers soda.
I’m a sleeper, I ly down I fall asleep. Probably sleep to much
I sleep all the time. I stay up at night and sleep during the day.
I sleep too much…
It feels like a waste of time…
I wish I were awake more…
Seroquel never made me sleepy either. I took 900 mg a day back then and still couldn’t sleep more than 5-7 hours a week (yes, I do mean week). It doesn’t work on everyone I guess.
sleep isn’t bad, Erez. I’d get bad headaches, and knew not why. but whenever I rested, I felt better.
I know sleep is important.
But healthy people are fine if they sleep 7-8 hours.
I sleep more unfortunately,maybe 10+ hours.
