    for over a year my insomnia is only getting worse.  in the beginning i was able to sleep 3 to 4 hours if i was lucky.  in the course of a year I lost my job and ended up in hospital twice thanks to insomnia.

    i followed a cbt i cursors to no avail. i am to a point now i see a psychiatrist 2 times a month and i am on antipsychotic strong medication . is not that i did not try is only getting worse. i don’t sleep every day i skip a lot then sleep a couple hours 3 our 4, if i am very lucky 5.

    a lot of time s i am awake for 36 hours our more. is like i lost the 24 hour schedule completely, even i go a sleep at the same time 11 o’clock in the evening and waking up at 6 in the morning.i feel so alone with this the amount of hours i sleep in a week is what most people sleep in a day or two i think. and to make stuff wors my sleep apnea is stopping me from if i do sleep to have a good sleep.

    this site help me so much over the last year i think i read it back and forward a couple of times by now. here people understand if you tell someone else is like the don’t believe you.

    Zyprexa works for some and for some not, like all of The antipsychotics. Have you tried other meds?

    @frozensun : i take 7.5 mg and if it not works i may take a extra pill                                                                    but i don’t take it every night cuz if i do the drug seems losses his power                                                              i i call it me emergency pill i only take it when i really need it

    @yellowdiamond :yes they tried so many i forgot most of them but zyprexa so far works the best

    @martin reed: the did test in sleep clinic but you have to sleep 4 hours for a good diagnosis                          but i barely slept 2 and in those 2 hours i stop breathing for more then 1/3 of the time                                    so if i start sleeping better again i need to go back for a extra sleep study                                                              but sleeping 4 hours doesn’t happen often and those test aren’t cheap                                                                    for an insomniac sleeping all hooked up with wires and a breathing machine good luck

    I have insomnia too, and I take zyprexa too. It feels like my brain is on full speed all The time, and my sleep rythm is late. You could try take your meds earlier.
