Default No sleep

We'll not exactly no sleep. I get a couple of hours, but then I wake up at 3 am and that's it. I 'm up for the day. What is wrong with me?

Sorry. I know how it is to have problems sleeping. Sometimes up for days other times sleep for days.

I was born with a sleep disorder too. I take klonopin to go to sleep. If I don't take it I don't get tired and will stay up all night.

I only have serious sleeping issues when manic, and to a lesser degree when hypomanic. I think it has almost always been the case in my life, and is certainly the case in the many years of me taking good doses of Seroquel XR. On the rare occasions that doesn't work perfectly (when I'm manic or having serious anxiety/agitation), a number of things do tend to help me, including:

* Prn Ativan
*Prn regular Seroquel
or in milder cases,
*My sound machine
*Dairy products eaten/drank at night

The latter two non-medicinal options can really make a difference for me.

I don't get sleep if I'm overheating or if my mind is racing.

So long as you are not taking Lithium or are pregnant I would recommend Catnip tea. Catnip is the strongest herbal sedative there is and causes calmness and relaxation. It can be found online or in some tea's in stores like
Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer Herbal Tea

Been happening here too. I sometimes fall back asleep around 5, for an hour or so.
