Any ideas to get solid sleep. I am on zoloft 100mg and abilify 5mg and not getting much sleep. Added seroquel at 40mg and then they upped to 150mg and still no solid sleep. What sleep I get is very broken, feel like a light switch being played with by a kid. I will lay down and after about an hour if I am lucky I will start switching off and on. I will be asleep and boom, I am wide awake and alert looking at the time. Close my eyes and within a few minutes I am out. Then 15 to 20 minutes later boom, back awake again. All my sleep on the chart that is more than 1 hour was this type of broken sleep. If I could manage 2 to 3 solid hours of sleep I could probbly live with that since the day I got 1 solid hour I felt like a god when I woke up.

Go for a walk in the evenings for 30 minutes. Take a hot hot bath and soak until your muscles are relaxed.

Not being able to sleep is uncomfortable. I'm on some of the same meds. And have trouble sleeping myself. Right now in my life im sleeping too much...

I hope you feel better

When I took Abilify it caused me sleep problems and I was very fidgety. I just could not sit still and my anxiety was thru the roof.

I used to have the same problem. I started saying good night to God. I don't mean that I prayed a long time. I asked Him to let me sleep through the night and to keep me safe. I also pet my cat as she lays on my chest purring and then I meditate on feeling tired which took a bit to train myself to do but I finally did. If you don't beieive in God then maybe this would be a good time to make him. Jesus is real and the trouble you are having is meant to keep you tired, confused and very open to bad judgement suggestions from the demons that are running loose in this world. Good luck & I will remember you in prayer tonight that a good sound sleep overtakes you tonight leaving you very refreshed.

God bless you
