I've been diagnosed with PTSD, and more recently adult ADHD. I struggle to fall asleep and stay asleep every night, and this has been an issue for several years now. I've been prescribed numerous anti-depressants and sleep meds including trazadone, paxil, zoloft, prozac, ambien, ambien cr, and lunesta. None of these have helped me in the slightest. More recently my psych doctor started me on buspar, prazosin, and inderal. I was told that these last three lower bp resulting in less physiological stress thus reducing mental stress/anxiety. While on the prazosin, I actually ended up blacking out and smashing my face into a wall, coming to several minutes later. Needless to say these aren't helping either, and may even be making issues worse for me. Currently I am taking adderall 30mg xr for the ADHD and still on the inderal (half of the lowest prescription dose of 10mg which is doing absolutely nothing). The adderall seems to be helping me less and less every day and despite the current beta blocker, I still have moderate to severe anxiety attacks which boost bp and hr. I have done some research and end up with the same suggestions every time, ativan, xanax, etc. I don't want to take the stuff regularly, and having never used them before, would like to try very small doses as needed. I suggested this to the psych, but was shot down because she thinks I'll pass out and sleep for days straight given my constant exhausted state already. I want to have a good night sleep so badly and also have something to help me get over the anxiety attacks when they happen. Are there any suggestions as to the right dose and/or time of day to take a medication like this(aside from use as needed), and also, any specific one to take? I'm not exactly keen with the idea of taking this type of drug given the side effects and withdrawal, but I just want to try them to see if they can help me. I'd like to use this information to approach her again about the topic, but with a better understanding of the benefits I would have with the medication. Any suggestions or finger pointing is appreciated and expected, respectfully. Thanks
