I mean if sleep is a major issue you could try increasing seroquel. You may not need both olanzapine and seroquel. You might be able to go on seroquel only. You are also taking lamotrigine which is a mood stabilizer.

The problem with stimulants (if you have bipolar) is that they only increase productivity only until they induce mania / insomnia. I may be bipolar, but still not sure. I stopped ritalin and am doing fairly well on atomoxetine.

I do miss ritalin in a sense, but overall I am doing better off of it.

Interestinly, seroquel metabolizes into another drug called norquetiapine. Norquetiapine is a NRI which can help energy / attention. So it is sedating when you take it, but then it turns into a drug which can increase your energy the next day. Also the nuvigil kind of acts like a stimulant.

What time of day do you take the lamortigine?

The stimulating meds are the nuvigil, prozac and possible lamotrigine. Each of these meds *can* increase insomnia for some people.
