so still no sleep,last week I ended 2 nights/days without a sleep.
For like 3 weeks I feel dissociated.
A week ago psychiatrist gave me Clozapine,God this is not a pill this is a death.
I took it last 3 days,and I couldn’t function at all.
I had a good sleep for 10 hours but all day long I felt deattached from the world,can’t think,can’t read,can’t concentrate,can’t even pay a simple bill.
Psychiatrist told me I have to take it but I really don’t want to because I feel like a plant on it.
I wish it only sedates me but it doesn’t it’s like a feeling you see all around yourself in a fog.
What can I do?
I went to somnologist to other country and he gave me a pill,too this time Tegretol,and I didn’t take it since it has nasty side effects same as Clozapine.
Wherever I go they all give me pills for epilepsy,schizophrenia.
I can’t take this anymore,and I can’t take insomnia too.
What else is left for me to try,please help me?September 12, 2019 at 7:35 am in reply to: waking up each night at around 3 a.m.,what to do about it? #32356
since Sunday I slept all in total 8 hours.
I feel very very ill,exhausted,my brain is slow.
God,is there an end to this misery!
Last 2 nights 0 sleep even with seroquel.
What can I do anymore?
I went to like 100 doctors,tried everything,I mean I don’t even know if there is a single thing I didn’t try.
whats is the difference,there is no single doctor who can enter his or my brain and tell it to shut down so we can fall asleep.
What is the difference between circadian rhythm disorder and chronic insomnia?September 6, 2019 at 8:45 pm in reply to: waking up each night at around 3 a.m.,what to do about it? #32295
Doctors still prescribing me meds.
But this solution won’t work futher more,as I’ve been told that this med losses effectiveness as hypnotic very soon,then I’m back at the start.
None of the doctors told me why I have insomnia,I mean if it’s because shiftwork probably now that after 5 months I would sleep normally but I don’t cuz I still have to take meds.September 4, 2019 at 12:03 pm in reply to: waking up each night at around 3 a.m.,what to do about it? #32211
How do I start with SRT,any guide?September 4, 2019 at 6:08 am in reply to: waking up each night at around 3 a.m.,what to do about it? #32209
From Monday Pregabalin doesn’t work anymore to get my fall asleep.
Now all hell broke loose.
I’l talk to my doctor today,but there is nothing that can be done,since I’m taking pills for 4.5 years.
He well probably suggest back to Clozapin (which is living hell taking it,drowsy,sleepy,dissociated all day,I am literally tied up on bed) or to not take any pills,but we all tried both solutions and the result is very bad.
Not taking any pills made me not to sleep 72 hours and then I was given Largactil IM.
So what do you guys suggest me to do?August 21, 2019 at 5:57 pm in reply to: waking up each night at around 3 a.m.,what to do about it? #31539
Is it possible that my brain acts like some kind of alarm,always waking up at that time?
Well I trie a lot of pills,really a lot,more then 15.
I’m taking now pregabalin 75 mg before sleep.
But it works 2 nights then third night I have to take clonazepam already 1 mg to put me to sleep.
But that is not relaxing sleep,cuz I wake up tired,probably no deep sleep from benzos.July 24, 2019 at 6:53 am in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30925
after 48 h of like 2-3 h of sleep total,I had to take klonopin last night to get some rest.
Although I don’t feel fresh at all.
When I woke up,one thought came to my mind:WHAT IF MY SLEEP NEVER COMES BACK NATURALLY.
I’m scared like shit…July 17, 2019 at 4:10 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30857
is it normal to feel deattached from reality after one night of no sleep?July 16, 2019 at 8:27 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30828
is there anything that can help withput these damn meds?
Anything to get my sleep back for at least 4 hours naturally?
Martin you said that shiftwork was the issue,man I don’t work for 4 months and still my sleep is not coming back.July 10, 2019 at 6:18 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30669
For one thing I know sadly,I ended many times third night can not fall asleep and taking meds.
I really can’t believe no one can tell what is the cause of my insomnia.
I mean how do blind man sleep.
So I know it’s risky to try to sleep without antipsychotic but taking sdatives long term probably is not solution anymore but psychiatrist don’t agree,they tell me there is a high chance to end up sadly in psychosis.
I took klonopin for more then a year but I read somewhere that klonopin deletes REM sleep permanently in humans so I got scared.July 10, 2019 at 5:20 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30662
I started going to CBT for like 10 sessions but it didn’t help.
I really can’t take clozapine,quetiapine,zyprexa anymore,they make me groggy all day long and I feel deatached from reality.
Hmm second option is to try sleep on my own,but this is impossible mission for me.
What can I do?I don’t have third option really,and I need sleep desperatly.
I know if I don’t sleep for one night now,I feel terrible,and that I won’t sleep the second night probably because fucked up hormones.July 8, 2019 at 10:21 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30604
Where can I practice CBT-I and mention to my therapist?Any link?
I mean I did all what you could say to a guy,avoid caffeine,excercise,laptop,dinner late etc etc nothing so far helped.I think that’s a since I see people taking coffe around 8:30 p.m and running/doing excercise around 7 p.m. and probably sleep normally.
I want a link to book or something about CBT-I,my therapist doesn’t know about that.
I suffer from borderline personality disorder and I think I got that with insomnia and somatoform disorder but I never had issues with this until insomnia hit me.Now looks like I’m in circle insomnia-bpd-som.dis-insomnia any each feeds other.July 7, 2019 at 5:39 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30603
Me deicied to stop taking all the meds.4 years I’m taking all possible sedatives.
This will me tough.
I know once ended up in hallucinations not sleeping for 4 nights/days and was given thorazine.
Someone here said it’s impossible for human not to fell asleep for more then 2 days.
This is really risky,since I know my body now can’t handle even one night without sleep.
I don’t expect miracle,so guys tell me,if I don’t fall asleep at least for 2 hours in 48 hours could I risk not to take any drugs third night?July 6, 2019 at 2:34 pm in reply to: insomnia for almost 4 years,tried all,any help/support? #30589
what dosage of gabapentin is for sleep?
I really can’t function like this on clozapine.
I’m in a brain fog,loss of concentration,sleepy,tired as hell and drowsiness is huge issue to me.
The only thing what is left for me is not to take any drugs anymore for sleep.
Can I risk my chances,to try?
I know I won’t sleep maybe for 48 h and it is very risky.
What do you guys think?
