Is Seroquel 25mg suppossed to better somehow for sleep than say 50mg.... 75mg... etc?
How long does it take for Parnate Insomnia on an increased dose to diminish? (I plan to go up again probably, this time even higher)
Today i slept maybe 11 hours after 2 days of zero sleep. I took risperidone for sleep and still have seroquel if that option is necessary and I imagine it will have to be if I go up to 30mg parnate.
Maybe this is just some withdrawl, maybe it was the longer than average amount of sleep but something is not right today. I dropped from 25mg parnate to this 20mg dose and after getting out of bed a sign of usually worsened mood for me is lack of color in my surroundings. Everything appears less colorful also I find it more difficult to talk to people. Anxiety over calling someone over the phone and so forth where before even during days of zero sleep and cognition compromised I would ''Want'' to actually speak to people. Also I feel less inclined, less motivated/interested in doing things generally.
This is not entirely unexpected. Going up to 25mg previously from 20mg gave me an extra boost in mood very swiftly but also a swift boost in insomnia. If I move up to 30mg Parnate or even higher how long should this ''therapeutic'' dose take? For me any time I raise a dose I notice improvement within the first day then it starts to level off.
But if I raise my dose the insomnia will be in full force again for someone whom has had pre-existing insomnia for over a decade.
