Sleep meds

Posted by ramji on May 25, 2008, at 8:17:40

I've tried to find this info on the internet with no luck so far ...

I'm currently on Wellbutrin 450mg, Abilify 10mg and Zoloft 50 mg. I'm having sleep issues ... I tend to sleep only 2 - 3 hours most days. My doc tried Seroquel, but I could not function the next day even on the smallest dose. Same with Trazadone.
I'm 52 years old and diagnosed with Bipolar disorder .... my doc said type 2 with mixed and rapid episodes. The hospital says type one.

Here's the question. When I was younger (20's and 30's) I was on Elavil for depression. It worked well until I was stupid enough to wean myself. I understand it has been used in small doses for sleep disorders and headaches (?) .... is this an option for me?

I'm expecting to switch docs and wanted to ask here first.
