As I said, is it because of meds? Or could it be because of thyroid problems that I have?
Probably meds. I sleep about 12 hrs. a day too. Think it’s a combination of meds and inactivity.
What meds do you take?
Depakine chrono and klozapol
I sleep bout 12 too… I think it’s the meds. They are mild tranquilizers if I remember correctly??
I’m not familiar with those, let me look them up. brb.
Depakine is for bipolar and klozapol is an antipsychotic
Yeh I heard somewhere that antipsyhotics are mild tranquilizers idk if that is true… Anyone??
Yes, they are, but i read that they should stop making me sleepy after a while, i take klozapol for about 7 months now
OK, maybe you are right.
A 16 hour day doesn’t work when I have a 12 hour mental battery.
I sleep at least 12 hours, probably meds and thyroid for me as well
Yes, I looked up both your medicines and I think it’s possible they could be contributing to your sleepiness. I know for me my meds change the amount that I sleep depending on what med I’m taking. The difference can be pretty drastic. Right now I usually sleep about 6 hours a day due to meds. Sometimes only 4 hours. But I’ve had some med combinations where I was sleeping all day it seemed.
I was sleeping 15+h a day on Risperdal 4mg until I started drinking coffee and black tea 3 times a day. Now I sleep 9h.
By 3 times I mean 2 cups everytime.
I was sleeping that much until I stopped Doxepin, so yeah, it’s possible for meds to do that
I believe its got to do with the damage pychosis does to your brain after taking high doses of omega threes for a long time my need to sleep excessively went away.
I slept 8 hours without meds, 10-12 hours on Zyprexa and I sleep 9 hours on Seroquel.
I sleep 12 hours at night and I nap for 1 or 2 hours
