I have had zopiclone last night ontop of my normal medications but that did nothing.
I am on sertraline, mitazapine, quetiapine, promethazine.
I tried literally staying still, relaxation, i have a relax light but nothing works
Please mention the doses of each of the drugs mentioned with their timing of intake ?
Do you have any benzodiazepine dug with you at the moment ?
Regards

In the morning have 150mg of sertraline, 15mg promethazine 25mg of quetiapine. At noon i have 15mg promethazine and 25mg quetiapine.
At night i have 30mg mitazapine, 350mg quetiapine and extra 50mg if needed.
I have no other tablets at hand
Thanks for the inputs.
I would like to suggest below mentioned drug regime that you discuss with your doctor for better sleep at night.
Stop promethazine in afternoon and take promethazine at night time at dose of 25 mg along with 30 mg Mirtazapine, 400 mg quetiapine , zopiclone . This shall take care of your insomnia .
But if there is not much improvement then get Ativan (lorazepam) at dose of 1 mg prescribed by your doctor and take it in place of zopiclone while the rest medications to be taken as mentioned above by me.
I hope this makes sense.
Wish you all the best.
Please kindly leave a POSITIVE RATING if you are satisfied with the answer.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
