Better sleep?
« on: April 27, 2014, 08:52:53 AM »
Here is my current med cocktail: Cymbalta 60mg (just upped from 30 to 60 2 weeks ago), Abilify 2mg, and daily Klonopin 0.5mg three times a day. I just decided to take abilify and cym at night because abilify puts me to sleep, plus i need to sleep off cymb SE like heavyheadedness, nausea spells etc. Now that i take cymb at night, i have insomnia, even alongside the abilify. Why?? Should i just take benadryl at bedtime to help with this?

Did the insomnia begin when you switched to taking Cymbalta at night, or within a few days of upping the dose to 60mg?

You could do as a temporary measure, but if the insomnia persists then you should discuss this with your doctor.
