How much sleep do we actually need? Those of us with sz. Do we need 10-12 hours of sleep or is it just the medication side effects? I have yet to find a clear answer on this via Googling.

And Like I Mentioned Before, Listen to Your Body.
I typically sleep 4 hours if I’m lucky 6 hours a day which is actually really good in my case cause I use to not sleep for days.
I need 10-12 hours of sleep a night. That’s what I feel best with. Any less and I drag all day.
I need at least eight and a half hours to feel rested
Seems to be the same for me. Problem is I’m always tired
I’m sorry @thomas. Have you spoken to your pdoc about this?
It’s been a while since I brought it up. Might need to revisit it. Had to increase my AP dose because I started working and it brought a whole new wave of fatigue.
I believe that increasing your AP to help you sleep is a double-edge sword because it also increases fatigue (do you still take Seroquel?).
I know you’re fatigued, and this suggestion may seem paradoxical, but do you exercise? If not, you may want to do some daily aerobic exercise. Also, meditation may help you sleep.
I do still take Seroquel. I had to increase my dose because of the added stress and symptoms of working, not for sleep. I was just trying to say that it’s made me even more tired because I had to increase it. I usually swim regularly at the YMCA but they are closed because of the coronavirus. Probably should try and go for walks or something, you are right. Thank you.
