Avatar f tn 5-2 hours with pounding heart, terrible sleep deprivation. It is so hard to get treatment from the MD because they don't know what to do.

Avatar m tn Is there someone you talk with every day that can check up on you? You need sleep. Even a perfectly healthy person will get psychotic after sleep deprivation. This is probably what is happening to you know. You can try melatonin or get pm medication at the drug store. Sleep is the most important thing right now. I understand you're feeling scared. Restore your sleep. Go to the Dr. Even get a physical if that would rest your fears. Think about only the present moment.
Avatar n tn My entire lifestyle changed for the better during the day but I was exhausted in the evenings and had sleep deprivation when I took an afternoon or evening dosage of the Wellbutrin.

2052200 tn?1332432684 Under sleep deprivation, no food,high off my *** on XTC and oh yea,im clinically diagnosed with depression. With all that going on i was visually hallucinating the letters V and M. Everywhere, on everything. It wasnt any normal letters, they look skewed a little,in everything and anything it looked that way. I "believe" that my mind was vulnerable and susceptible to the altered state of reality.
603220 tn?1219918774 After all the questions your doctor asked and your replies, surely they recommended a sleep study? Sleep deprivation causes decreased libido and symptoms that look like depression, plus daytime sleepiness, fatigue, awaking unrefreshed. If you have some episodes that look like apnea that your boyfriend sees, there's likely many more he doesn't see, as he is either sleeping (or peeing). By the way, frequent nighttime urination can be a sign of sleep apnea. Maybe he needs checked too.

585414 tn?1288944902 I seldom need to sleep during the day. But this is a danger signal to me, as after much sleep deprivation I became suicidal.

It can be caused by another disorder, or it can be a primary disorder. Its effects can vary according to its causes. They might include muscular fatigue, hallucinations, and/or mental fatigue.
Avatar n tn These studies have demonstrated that consuming Tyrosine enhances the production of neurotransmitters and may, in fact, alleviate certain symptoms of depression and improve alertness and focus. Also, studies performed by the military have shown that consuming a L-Tyrosine supplement may enhance cognitive performance. What doses of Tyrosine should be taken? There are no definitive studies showing what doses of L-Tyrosine are most effective.
Avatar n tn The L Theanine has green tea so that's what may make one feel awake, says it's for stress - which is less prob similar to the energy effect of B vitamins - I have yet to try Rhodiola and GAMA- I have not tried other brands other then GNC so I can't comment about the quality or benefit of them, they have a quality guarantee so figured it would work and if not, just exchanged or returned- anyhow the Melatonin took the place of my need for lorazepam at night- no more anxiety or crazy feelings from
198419 tn?1360245956 home so I came back and just gave up on trying to sleep and tried to just relax. Sleep deprivation was used for years as a form of torture in the military so if anyone tells you if you are tired enough then you will sleep (that's what my husband used to say), I give you permission to smack them, ha ha.
Avatar f tn Really looking forward to feeling that way again. Sleep deprivation seems to be the biggest thing for me right now. I just can't seem to get my internal clock to get back to normal. I started taking at least 2-3 hot showers a day and that has helped me too. Thanks for your inspiration!
1463718 tn?1286506577 I can't undo the last 15 years on Klonipin or the 8 years on Methadone but I feel very bad for not knowing I was misdiagnosed and trusted my doctors like you would trust your parents. I need to know if my sleep deprivation is a typical reaction to going off these medications I was on for so long.
