Not being able to sleep is a problem, for sure, but in my opinion it is not best remediated with antipsychotics. Can you try cyproheptadine (Periactin)? It is both an antihistamine (histamine H1-receptor antagonist) and a serotonin 5-HT2A receptor antagonist. If that doesn't work, and the dopamine antagonism turns out essential, try augmenting with a low dose of a more selective dopamine antagonist (than olanzapine and quetiapine) like haloperidol; in this situation, I would avoid sulpiride and amisulpride, as they can have stimulant effects. There are also other agents that can help with sleep, such as clonidine and Xyrem. And what about the Z-drugs ((es)zopiclone, zolpidem, zaleplon)?
