They started me on 15 mg of Remeron and 300 of Seroquel and 1 mg of lorazepam. Then I am I had to increase the dose of the Remeron to 30 mg and I'm sleeping worse than ever. I'm averaging 1 to 2 hours of sleep a night if that it's hard to go to sleep and I can't stay asleep. I am not bipolar I've been trying to get off the Seroquel for about 6 months now but no they will not stop it. I have depression but I am not bipolar I have an unusual amount of stress because of a neighbor above stalking me. What do I have to say to these doctors and make them understand I am not sleeping it's not working for me.
Have you tried getting a second opinion preferably from a psychiatrist or a different psychiatrist if you're already seeing one? The drugs you're taking are not generally prescribed for Bipolar disorders anyway so I'm not sure how that factors in, but the cocktail you're taking should be knocking you out.
Have you ever been prescribed drugs intended for use as sleep aids like Lunesta, Ambien, Sonata, etc? Much safer than benzodiazepines and not addictive.
Well Seroquel is very much given for bipolar disorder and is often used as mood stabilizer. Have you considered you might be taking too much medication to sleep? I myself go into a survival like fight against anything too sedating like Seroquel or Trazodone. Get a second opinion for medication therapy but diagnosis can be accurate as insomnia is a symptom of depression
