I'm not doing well again. Another week of cycling insomnia (on night of good sleep followed by total or near total insomnia).
I can't seem to stop this cycle. I went to the ER today after 2 nights of near total insomnia in a row. My psychiatrist is out of town. They gave me zopiclone but I read it was linked to cancer so I'm not sure if I want to take it.
Anyhow, just sharing. Not really looking for advice cause I don't believe there is any viable solution in sight.
I quit the amitriptyline and clonazepam since they are just supressing me. Theres no quality of life, I just feel drugged.
The doctors don't really understand that. They just act so bewildered as to why somebody would stop a medication which is suppressing the symptoms.
I'm probably rapid cycling or something, but I don't want to take an anticonvulsant or antipsychotic.
I just hate my life right now. I have no control.
