Some of the best sleeps come from me using Abilify. Never in my whole life have I slept as well as I have on Abilify. It’s just so epic going to sleep with Abilify. Even before I was schizophrenic I never slept that good.


#3

I was on 300 mg of clozaril and slept 20 hours a day…I bet if I took 900 mg I could sleep for 2 days straight. Even with a tolerance to the drug! If they fed me clozaril every time I woke up I could sleep forever lol.


#4

I get super good sleep after I take my morning dose of Geodon but at night I don’t even feel tired when I take it


#5

None of those. Ativan+trazodone knocked me out and kept me knocked out. You HAVE to make sure you get 8 hours of sleep with it though, when I tried to wake up too quickly I would faint.


#6

Seroquel knocked me out.
My sleep is pretty good on Depakote.

Worse sleep - Abilify, Vraylar and Lamictal.


#7

antihistamines knock me out faster and more consistently than any other med ive had for sleep…


#8

Ambien makes me forget I even fell asleep, just awake one moment asleep the next. But I’m no longer on it. Those were the days tbh.


#9

I take 100mg of Trazodone at night, I only used to sleep 2-3 hours, now I sleep 7-8 hours every night.
I also take 50mg Chlorpromazine and 20mg of Fluoxetine, but they are for my mental health problems.


#10

Seroquel knocks me out at night. So does Melatonin. Geodon does the trick in the morning.


#11

I second 5 mg of Ativan. That’s the dose for insomnia I believe and it seems to really work well

Well that and 100 mg of serequel


#12

Abilify, Zyprexa and Seroquel

MAke a brotha feel well rested


#13

Seroquel gave me the best sleep.
Zyprexa turned me into a comatose zombie. I’d wake up still sleeping. I couldn’t function, I was always too sleepy. Fell asleep during zoology class numerous times and got woken up by the teacher who was annoyed but patient

Hydroxazine pam also worked as a good basic anti-anxiety anti-histamine drug that would gently sway me to sleep at night. I’m not on that anymore, though.


#14

Zopiclone olanzapine and mirtazapine at night knocks me out sometimes for a good 10 to12 hours though not always streght away.


#15

25mg Quetiapine knocks me out for 12 hours… Strangely it didn’t have that effect at 600mg, very odd… Aripiprazole keeps me awake, I have to take it in the morning.


#16

Nothing work so good on me as sleep meds or benzos. For my ap (zyprexa), i dont feel it really but on it i suceed to fall asleep sooner or later. Without it, i stop sleeping litterally…


#17

I take 50mg of Diphenhydramine aka Benadryl every night and I sleep decent but I don’t wake up feeling groggy like some of the other medications I’ve taken.
