Since I have been on benzos (since 2000) I have not had any appreciable REM sleep as diagnosed on 4 sleep studies and very well might be exacerbating my severe obstructive sleep apnea. My next goal is to get off Prestiq, followed by Adderral. This will be a work in progress. I have been diagnosed as Bipolar I and have been hospitalized 5 times within 18 months. I am currently stable on Lithium. Looking forward to getting to know you.


Hi, Welcome to Psycho Babble.

Excellent idea to come off the benzos. Which one is it and what's your dosage?

So you did you plan to come off all these meds with your doctor? Is the plan just to take the Lithium?
