Messed up sleep schedule

Ever since coming off antipsychotics, my sleep schedule has been nothing short of erratic. I figure a few days of being up till the wee hours will correct it.

I’ve been off all meds since mar 7

and my sleep is so weird

I had a period in june where I slept 3 days straight

I had 0 sleep nights

most nights now I get about 5hrs - but I don’t fall asleep until like 5am

it’s annoying
I really need to be on meds

I came off meds because it was determined I don’t have schizophrenia, but a form of epilepsy,

Wow, alien99, I’d like to say congratulations to you for not having schizophrenia. Antipsychotics have so many undesirable side effects. I hope meds for epilepsy are mild in side effects.

@green6, the Depakote makes me foggy and forgetful. I’ll take that over schizophrenia any day of the week.

mmm I was on Depakote once - 2500mg a day split in a couple doses

gained weight sedated my hair fell out and my gums bled

it sounds like it’s not impacting your sleep too much

@crazyfrog, that;s an insane dose of Depakote! No wonder you had side effects! I’m on 1000 mg.
