> One of the hallmarks of MAOI is insomnia. So that criterium for figuring out wether you go in the wrong direction may not be available to you anymore. You will likely need a sleep med. I did sleep when i was psychotic. On sleep meds.

I meant a subjectively reduced need for sleep. People who complain of insomnia usually feel they *need* that sleep they are missing. With a (non-mixed) manic reduced need for sleep, you feel alert and enthusiastic despite sleeping only a few hours -- or even not at all.

That said, with a mixed mania, in which you have depressive and manic symptoms, you may wish to sleep, but you cannot, because you feel fully awake, perhaps fully awake with unpleasant racing thoughts, making you long for rest (but not because you are actually tired). You can perhaps classify that as a special case of insomnia.
