I've had problems with sleeping for a year now. I have taken Ambien, klonopin and for the last month and a half Seroquel 25-50 mg. I recently quit Savella and went on to the Emsam patch knowing that insomina may be a problem but since it already was a problem I decided to go on the patch. I began the patch last Thursday so it hasn't been a week. I also discontinued Seroquel because of severe edema to the point where when I step off the bed I felt like 9 months pregnant. In addition, I think I'm feeling some withdrawal side effects(excessive body ache, like being beaten by a baseball bat) from Savella as I discontinued it cold turkey. However, I have been trying to continue on and overlook the fact that I am barely sleeping but last night, it got to me as I felt desperate since I had to get up early for my 1st day of school. So I took 2 mg Klonopin, and nothing then added Tylenol PM and nothing then added 50mg Vistaril and nothing finally I figured an Ambien cr would do the trick but nooooo I had to take a second one and it was already 4 in the morning. Only slept 4 hours. This is ridiculous. I don't know what to do. I don't want to take antipsychotics for sleep anymore as they make me feel like I weigh a ton of bricks. I hate that with all these meds you tackle one problem only to create another equally hideous. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do?
I know the patch does not help my situation in terms of possibly aggravating the insomnia but I am at the end of the rope with meds.
