Cannot Sleep Lying Down

I'm sure this has already been discussed but too many posts to look through.

I am totally tired standing up and sitting up. As soon as I lay down it's like I took amphetamines. SO wide awake! Once in a while, I can get some sleep during the day. I mostly DO NOT SLEEP! I'm sure other people have the same problem. I am hoping I can get some kind of an answer in this ...

I can't sleep anymore?

I don't know what the hell is happening. I can't go to sleep when I try to and i have no idea why. And the strangest part is that I don't feel exhausted. Does anyone feel this way? Maybe I'm just overthinking things.

Doing things while sleeping

Has anyone experienced luna effect episodes, like walking, getting out of house, opening/closing windows, etc.? I remember when my mom told me that I was walking, while sleeping. And she told me that I was crying and shouting while sleeping (this was back in my younger years). I don't have any sleep disorders because I don't have those symptoms. Is there a reason as to why? I just had a Psychology lesson and my school ...

Can't sleep years after taking prednisone

Hello All, 36yo male here. From February to July 2019 I took prednisone 3.5 different times for 4 different run-ins with poison ivy. (stopped mid-way through the last one because at that time I knew for sure that it was not worth it to mess up my sleep like that). I have always went to sleep at 9PM and would sleep through the night good except if I drank too much water I would wake ...

Experiences with trazodone?

Was just put on Trazodone (50 mg) as a sleep aid, and was wondering about others' experiences with this as a sleep aid, specifically were your experiences taking it for the first couple of days, and long term? Did you take it every day, and did you ever have to up the dosage? Currently, I'm not taking any other medication (though I was on clonazepam on and off for a couple of weeks,but switched ...

Baclofen on and off
Afteril (again supposedly natural)
Midnite (natural)
Celexa - I need to take this one for sure.

All of these meds are ...

Sleep and related issues

Question 1- have noticed that since I reduced my Lithium from 1000 to 800, there is no noticeable difference in my sleep. Any Lithium takers notice any changes in sleep patterns? ( I'm also on Remeron/ Mirtazipine) maybe that's why my sleep is OK for now.

Question 2 (non- sleep related)I'm currently hoping to taper down, probably over many months, my Lithium , due to side effects. The main side effect is that I have ...

Medication / Sleep Issues / Lithium

So, my question / problem is related to medication. This is affecting me greatly and causing me great distress. I am taking Mirtazipine (Remeron) along with Lithium. I suffered a very bad depression a few months back and was hospitalised. I am literally on so few meds now , compared to what I was on in hospital. The problem I have now , even after my depression has lifted, is that I feel extremely flat ...
