I stay far away from THC. It use to make me psychotic when I was on Olanzapine. I tried a THC/CBD tincture by accident, I thought it was just CBD, while on my new AP Latuda and I got a buzz, but didn’t become psychotic. I think Latuda is more powerful than THC for me, but I still avoid it. I don’t like the way THC make me feel physically, I just feel anxiety plus a psychotic feeling I can’t describe but I don’t like it.
For sleep I have tried a lot of stuff, I usually mix things to get a good sleep
Trazodone doesn’t work. Tried up to 125mg.
Benadryl is hit and miss but usually doesn’t work and tolerance develops quickly, last time I tried it I took 175mg and didn’t sleep at all.
25mg of Doxylamine succinate works but I don’t sleep for very long.
50mg Promethezine didn’t work.
Melatonin doesn’t really do much. Valerian doesn’t do much either. And other herbs too, mostly useless.
10mg Zolpidem put me to sleep for 4 hours but I developed tolerance after 3 days.
7.5mg Zopilcone works consistently, no tolerance, but only puts me to sleep for 5-7 hours, but it is a low quality sleep.
2mg of Lorazapem put me to sleep for about 7 hours, but low quality sleep.
Gabapentin at high doses 1000mg+ can help me sleep, I usually mix it with zopilcone 7.5mg. Gabapentin increases slow wave sleep so its a better quality sleep, that is why I mix it with zopilcone.
Last 2 nights I took 2mg of clonazepam and that has worked the best, I feel really good the last couple days.
In my case I mix sleep meds to get a good effect. Tonight I am going to take 3000mg of Glycine, 100mg l-theanine, 5mg melatonin, 800mg gabapentin and 7.5mg zopilcone…I’ll probably sleep 7 hours.
My insomnia since quitting olanzapine is brutal. I can’t sleep at all, not even a minute, with pills.
