I have been recently diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder just before Thanksgiving 2009, Dr.s have been adjusting meds the last 2 1/2 months. One type of my manic episodes usually include days of sleeplessness. The fist thing perscribed was the Seroquel 1,000 mg's at bedtime, adderall [20 mg 2x] , changed my lexapro to celexa 40 mg, .
After a month on the Seroquel he switched me to Depokote 1,000 mg's, [2x 500] at bedtime, and he has added Klonopine at bedtime as well and I am still up all night. Has anyone had trouble with sleeping when taking these meds that should be calming?
I have other anxiety disorders along with the Bipolar Disorder. Since being diagnosed I am trying to figure out what all of this means, to me.
