I suffer from insomnia, sleep apnea and shift work sleep disorder. As you can imagine my nervous system and brain are fried and I deal with some pretty heavy fatigue.

I also have CPTSD so I'm prescribed venlaflaxine, mirtazapine and prazosin along with 2 other tablets for high blood pressure. And I occasionally get a script for valium from my doctor.

Over the last year I've picked up a rather expensive amphetamine habit. I'm seeing my psychiatrist some time in the next few months to review medication and look at a possible adult diagnosis of ADHD, as my son was diagnosed last year.

I'm wondering if anybody else has had similar issues and how you cope? Both chemical and healthy coping mechanisms are fine.

Yes, are you taking the correct amount of valium that is prescribed? 
 

Also how bad is your amph habit? 
 

anything over 60 mg has diminishing returns and is dumb its just your brain. 
 

So if your on 200 mg a day ... cut to 100 then 60 and take some rest days :)

Yup I don't go overboard on the valium. 50 5mg tabs usually last a couple of months.

As for the uppers. Roughly 1pt so 100mg on my 12hr shift days and I try not to use on my days off.

I had last week off due to roster changes and didn't use amps at all except for some mdma on Saturday night. Felt extremely refreshed when I came back yesterday and when my dealer packed me a complimentary bowl the gear hit a lot smoother and I didn't wake up feeling scattered today, so the break did me a lot of good.

My housemate has a script, but hypnotics aren't easy to get in Australia. I bought some zopiclone a while back which helped immensely.

Yeah gotta keep that balance and practice harm reduction!

They zonk you much like cannabis but unfortunately don't improve the REM quality which sucks. I'm also using melatonin as per my doctors suggestion which helps when I'm sleeping at night but not during the day when I have work that night.

Oh I'm well aware, haha.

Personally not a fan of seroquel. Tried once and it floored me but might not hurt to try again. Currently the only extra I'm using is cannabis until I get my next benzo script.

Were you on a higher dose? Higher doses have antipsychotic effects where the lower doses will just sedate you and you wont produce any dopamine and serotonin that will keep you awake

Wasn't prescribed and I can't recall the dose. A mate gave me one tablet to see if it helped. Definitely might be worth looking into. I'll mention sedatives to the psychiatrist since that's the only way to get anything strong, legally at least, here.

I agree with ambien. It is the only thing that actually makes me feel like I slept. I've tried almost everything. The only bad part is it will make you sleepwalk. I've woke to find messes in the kitchen that I dont remember anything about. And I was told I drove my car once. So now I lock my keys in a lock box. Just dont drink a lot of alcohol when you take it.
