I don't want to sleep but

I got to sleep. It is late here. Which brings me to the most important question I have wrestled with all my life: What time do you guys go to sleep? And, how much do you sleep?


I sleep around 21.00 to 22.00.
I sleep for 12 hours


I would also sleep for 12 hours on Clozapine. I am glad I am off it. I believe it is the Clozapine in your case?

I go to bed about 730 or 8 and sleep about 11 or 12 hours a night. I get up about 730 also.

Even before clozapine I was sleeping too much.
I also nap after lunch.

I see. With Clozapine, I would be dead the moment I would take it. It is very strong.


Really? Another guy who tried it,
told me he was about to faint and quit it

Yes, believe it or not, I was once at the Dubai airport. I took one pill in the morning. I couldn’t keep awake and at the airport they all thought I was drugged.

Atypicals affect me negatively…I like Abilify but the rest are terrible, really.

Have you tried Amisulpride?

When I was on clozapine in 2004, I slept for 16 hours a day

Presently I’m on amisulpride which supposedly has slight insomnia property, and haloperidol which helps me sleep without sedating me

I go to bed usually around 11pm and get up sunrise and go back to bed till 9am

I usually sleep for 10-12 hours.

I normally go to bed between midnight and 1a. I sleep until 8a on weekdays. Sleep in on weekends.

I go to sleep around 1 am and wake up around 10 30 am

I’m on clozapine…usually go to bed at 9 or 10 and sleep 10-11 hours. It zonks my ass out.

Yes, amisulpride was the first ap i tried

I usually have trouble falling asleep for an hour or two, and that is with taking both Ziprasidone and Clozapine. Once i’m asleep, i get around 8 - 9 hours, sometimes more. I am usually drowsy when i wake up, and so can fall back to sleep easily if i don’t get up and do something.

I get sleep when I can. I usually go to bed around 9pm and wake up around 1am and then go back to sleep around 4am and sleep until 8am. Well that’s not always the case but it’s a good outline of a somewhat normal sleep schedule.

I sleep for about 12 hours because of the medications. Normally I would sleep 8 hours.

i sleep about 10 or 11 hours a day.
