She sees people and believes my Dad has been taken over by a cult. She’s taking Sknemet, Rohpinerol and Seroquil.
I take Sinemet and Rasagiline during the day. At bedtime I take quetiapine with clonazepam for nightmares. I just saw a programme saying quetiapine blocks dopamine. But the Sinemet and Rasagiline is to increase dopamine. Is this usual? Could this be causing my lethargy or cognitive issues?
I have awakened to see a person twice that was not really there. I have not seen anyone mention this- it is quite scary. My dr. has prescribed Seroquel and 5 mg. of melatonin. I sleep better. Hoping never to experience e this again.

We were really hoping that the nuplazid would… read more
My wife sleeps 12 to 14 hours per day. Comments here are about insomnia. Does her sleeping mean there is another problem ?
I go to bed around 930,10PM--still checking the time at 1230AM or so. Some nights I believe I've gotten no sleep at all. Taking Melatonin has not helped. I need to take my first carbi-leva at 7AM and stay in bed, trying to catch some shuteye til about 9-930AM. Groggy all day. Drinking about 7 oz. of decaf in AM. (I call decaf "why bother?" LOL) Taking so many RX and Vitamin supplements… read more
