I just skipped my meds yesterday to see how I would sleep without them. And the result was zero sleep.
I’m on zyprexa and want to try abilify, but I hear abilify causes insomnia in many people, unless I get lucky. I hear a few people sleep normal on them. Maybe I will need a sleepmed on the side if I’m gonna try out abilify?
I used to be able to sleep when skipping a dose, but after long term use(over 10 years) it seems the drugs may have impaired my brain, and now I’m unable to sleep without zyprexa. I read on some other forum about some people who quit zyprexa, who said it could take like over a year before sleep normalizes.
