I take 60mg Cymbalta and 10mg Valium and go to sleep 11pm and Up again at 2am or 3am from nightmares. Never know when it will happen. Comes out of no where.
Could happen 2 or 3 days in a row or not again for 2 or 3 weeks...
I'm wondering this because I am and some days I have to take Valium just to be able to function. When I read how others can't even get out of bed, don't shower etc I wonder if their meds aren't right for them or if this is something that happens while taking meds.
I have been taking one 10mg Valium per night for over a year now and i fall asleep ok but after 5 hours i'm up and not able to sleep anymore and i just don't feel well.
I also take one 60mg Cymbalta per night for over a year now.
I'm age 58 and struggle with bipolar and chronic depression.
I have been in bed for two days w depression, I feel like a yo- yo w my new psych. She has tried vistaril, Zoloft,Valium,lunsta and lamectal. I feel WORSE AND MORE DEPRESSED....Between the lamectal and zoloft I have been eating nonstop, I don't know which med is causing it. Someone plzzzzz tell me what's good for bipolar and anxiety ????? I feel desperate.
