I am curious as to how much sleep you get at night, on a normal night that is. I am currently on Lithum, Serquel and risperdal at night. The serquel is only 100mgs. I also have a CPAP machine that I use every night. but I am sleeping when I am not manic upwards of 12 hours a night. I go to bed at 10 or 10:30 and get up anywhere from 8-10am. I just wonder if others sleep like this or if it is medication related. I did ask my priamry care dr and he said it tied into the medications I am on for my psych.

When I take my med my pain management doc gave me for nerve pain (Nortriptyline), which is also used for depression and anxiety. I can sleep for about 8 hours if my pain is not real bad. But there are nights I can only sleep 1-2 hours even without pain and on my meds.
