I don't know what to do, any suggestions?
During my manic phases, I had major sleep problems. I would go for about 3 days with little or no sleep. My doctor combined seroquel with lamictal to quiet my mind and added ambian and ativan when I become a little manic. These combinations work for me but I would suggest telling your doctor about the sleep issues. I took lithium for a while but all that did is make me feel like a zombie so my doctor took me off of that. Basically, you and your doctor need to find the combination that works for you. I have tried most of the psychiatric drugs and only the lamictal and seroquel worked for me. How long have you been on these medications? It took about a year for me to feel "normal" and sleep well. I still get restless - right now I have not been to bed for 18 hours. I took an ativan to settle down but it has not kicked in yet. The bottom line is you and your doctor need to find what works for you but give each medication time to build up in your system to get the full effect. I hope this helps. :)
