Med washout to focus on sleep

Posted by linkadge on August 12, 2017, at 18:50:22

I stopped my meds 2 days ago (very low doses of Effexor, lithium and amitriptyline) to try and get my sleep under control.

I just keep staying up later and later. The amitriptyline puts me to sleep for about an hour, and then I'm wide awake for another 2 or so. I don't fall asleep fully till about 2-3 in the morning.

When my sleep gets f'd up, I find the meds are essentially useless.

To focus exclusively on sleep, I'm taking

1) melatonin time release 5mg
2) cyrpoheptadine 1-5mg
3) lorazepam

That's it. I slept very well last night with this. I did wake up somewhat depressed.

If I sleep normally for a week, I can reassess my state and think about what to do next.
