I'm glad you're not all that bad off. I'm touch and go as well. Seems like I'm pretty volatile when I don't sleep though. And for the past 5 days...oh jeez!! I'm getting to be a real grouch. I went out to the "food hole" (my friend's name for Whole Foods supermarket) and got some sleep supplement. It has Magnesium, Calcium, Valerian, and GABA. I called my doc just now, and he said to just up my Ambien dose to 10mg. I hope it works at least for the next week or so. I don't get the feeling he's too keen on the supplement I bought.
I keep thinking that I don't have enough mood stabilization with Lamictal alone, though. Seems like if I was stabilized, I'd sleep better. I've been on Lamictal for 5 months now, so my system is pretty used to it. It's never helped me with anxiety and/or sleep. I wonder if my doc would give me Seroquel. Seems like it's worked for a lot of insomniacs on this board.
Thanks for the advice Katia!
