I don't think that would work.

I don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> if I just take a small dose, and if I don't sleep I get manic, and when if I get manic I can get delusional. I primarily take it for its antipsychotic properties, and the fact that it puts me to sleep at night is a bonus. Sometimes, when I am even just a little manic, my dose of immediate relean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>e 450mg isn't enough to put me to sleep. Then I have to use Xanax.

I've tried abilify before and it wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>n't effective, especially since I am an insomniac, so the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquelan> han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> been the only medication that I've tried that han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> the added sedative benefit without the need for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id.... it's tough trying to find the right combination of medication, and of course, I'm of the mind that the lean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>t amount of medication to treat the symptoms is the best route to go.
I reduced my grandmother's dose of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>seroquel</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> from 1/2 of a 25mg tablet to 1/4 and she still han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> slight TD-like muscle movements of her lips/tongue and head nodding.

When I tried to discontinue, she skipped one dose, had strange thoughts, upset stomach and couldn't sleep. She also takes Dilitiazem and Lan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>ix for BP. Is there something safer she can take to keep her calm and sleep?
I hear 25mg is really not high enough to be effective for GaD or anything else other than a sleeping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id (why anyone would take a anti-psych for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id is beyond me). I hear that 200-300 mg is the dose for treating GaD, BP, and depression. I will be seeing my doc tomorrow to discuss increan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>ing the dosage. any input from anyone on the "front lines" would be awesome! Cheers!

Hello, I would like to know if it is safe to fly and be taking medical treatment for a year with <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>seroquel</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 300 and Fluoxetine (Prozac). I have to take a plane in a few days and let me know if it is safe to take this treatment ((people taking an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquelan> and flew by plane more than 6 hours) I would also like to know the flight experiences in other patients taking an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>seroquelan>. Thanks, anthony.
If indeed you end up having an issue, like the dose may be a bit high, then address that with your doc. Fingers crossed that you get some relief with the <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>seroquel</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. It's commonly used an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id, I've had thousands of patients on it, and my experience with it is that it's tolerated well and is effective for the van style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>t majority of people. Hang in there...and don't let your mind take over! LOL I know ean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>ier said than done, but like I've said before, that's your biggest downfall.
I had one doc diagnose me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> bipolar but she only observed me for 2 weeks. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>seroquel</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> is the only thing that helped me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span>. My insomnia is chronic so i cant just be on a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id short term. I tried zopiclone but it didnt help me. Every antidepressant ive tried so far han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> made my anxiety and insomnia worse.
if you arent on tx. you may an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>k your dr. about rozerem a new <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id that is non hypnotic. it works on the melatonin receptors but is not melatonin i had to go to a sleep clinic after tx. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> i never got back on the sleep track correctly. and treatment made me wired to boot.

For instance, you could be lacking in iodine (I wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>), or you could have high cortisol.

It is an herb that serves to relax you and help you sleep. also, if the problem be high cortisol, it will help normalize it.
Hi - I too have bi-polar with serious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> problems... I'm currently on <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>seroquel</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> 200mg/day at night and that puts me to sleep.... I used to have to take OTC medications (quite a bit) or prescribed sleep aids like ambien.... What medications are you currently taking?
It is a natural <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id. One thing that helped me get back on track wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> exercising. Try and wear yourself out during the day. also be sure you are eating healthy. Go to bed and get up around the same time. I think it helps to have a pattern like that. Congrats on 7 weeks! You should be very proud of yourself! Just keep on fighting and your body will get back to normal eventually. Best of luck!
I also dont want to become dependent on it for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> everynight, but i have become dependent on it. I have been taking somekind of benzo or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id for the pan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>t 2 yrs. But after a bed svt episode in december, i have been needing something stronger for my sleep anxiety. My doc also recommended me Lunesta but im too scared to try it, its 3mg. I think that might be a too high of a dose. Does anyone know what can help me sleep without anxiety? Han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> anyone else tried Lunesta for sleep anxiety.
I don't know if this would work for you but Propanalol is a good drug for calming down the nervous system and so can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>id greatly in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sleep</span>. This drug is sometimes called Inderal and is a beta-blocker which slows down the heart and circulation. I have found since taking this drug i have slept soundly and my GaD han style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan> calmed greatly. I take 40mg x 2 times daily, one when wake up and 1 before bed...... It could help and isn't addictive like other med's......

I have not tried it, but will when I emerge from the bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>asan>tly first week of WD, I intend to. I have read that 50-100 mg. is an appropriate dose. I naively tried Melatonin the night of day 1, and needless to say, despite the 5 mg. I took, I only slept about 1 hour. DUGH!!!! I learn most from my own stupidity!!!
