Please, suggestions on how to reduce sleeping which results from medications


#21

So do I. So what? Sleeping is cool. And pure luxury.


#22

If you are not able to study or work it is the best, but if you are high functiong or normal it is a waste of time. :slight_smile:


#23

I wish I had big , big solutions for you.
I have this problem too, both on and off medication.
Exercise helps to a certain degree.

@sharlok

Abilify dehydrates you, so if you hydrate (water) throughout the day you’ll sleep less. Also, make sure the temperature in your bedroom is comfortable.

I take all the sleep I can get. Now working I get up at 615 when my alarm goes off. I would sleep more but I can’t. Try setting an alarm. See if you can handle less sleep. I seem to be managing it okay.


#26

Thanks so much. yes I tried exercise before and it actually worked for me. I must practice again


#27

thanks so much for your helpful reply but unfortunately I asked my doctor before about Abilify and he did not recommend me


#28

yes great. keep on. I hope the same. sometime when I forget to to take my medication, I keep awake till morning or maybe tomorrow afternoon

@sharlok

Sorry, I thought olanzepine was Abilify.

It’s not?


#30

no it is different
Olanzapine also called Olapex
you can search google


#31

@sharlok

Sorry, I was thinking of ariprazole (sp?)


#32

what is the question please?


#33

@sharlok

Since all APs sedate, I would think that they all dehydrate.


#34

Did you ask about geodon and latuda?


#35

I heard about Geodon that is very good but i did not ask my doctor
I have no idea about latuda


#36

I’ve been sleeping 12 hours a day again. I love it!


#37

but it is not good for health, bro


#38

oh well just add it to my list of bad habits.


#39

It is very good if your body needs it. :slight_smile:
I started to need it too since I was getting ill.

Drink caffeinated coffee without cream and sugar. That’s how everybody I know on these meds stays awake during the daytime. And it works!!! Drink it all day long.
