I'm using prazosin for sleep, both sleep initiation and sleep maintenance, right now I cannot initiate sleep without saphris or seroquel, which i'm trying to get off of. And for the past 9 months i've been getting up at 3-4am and am not able to get back to sleep. We tried clonidine, but it didn't really work. Nothing else I have tried works, especially for maintenance. Seroquel makes me super depressed and groggy next day. Saphris unfortunately seems to be the best option right now, but i have to redoes it at 3am, and even then it's iffy if it works or not.
I will try a higher dose of prazosin at night. I am also BP2, so I definitely am watching your response with interest. I'm on a high dose of wellbutrin 600mg and vyvanse so i may just be antagonizing the NE with prazosin so who knows.
