Here is a a link to our discussion of Tips to help sleep. Please read that. If you have questions, please post them here in your introduction topic so that all your information is in one place.

 

Are you only experiencing insomnia?

If you have other symptoms what is your symptom pattern throughout the day?

 

Please keep notes on paper of your symptoms and the times of your dose(s). This post has a useful format for a daily log:

Take notes of doses and symptoms.

Some people find it helpful to supplement with omega 3 fish oil and magnesium. If you decide to try supplements, please pick one and start at a low dose. Links to more information:
Omega 3 Fatty Acids in fish oil
Magnesium.
 

A few more questions:

  1. Have you ever been prescribed another medication for a neurological or psychiatric condition -- an antidepressant, a "tranquilizer", a benzodiazepine, an anticonvulsant?

    If yes, please post about what you were prescribed and the dose, and when you took it.
     
  2. Are you currently taking or have you taken in the last 3 months any other medications: prescription, over-the-counter, or street drugs?

Your ability to understand and write in English is fine. :)

Xeplion is paliperidone palmitate; it is the same as or related to Invega Sustenna.
 

Zestat is mirtazapine; the brand name for this in the U.S. is  Remeron .
 
Ketya is quetiapine hemifumarate; it is the same as or related to the the brand name drug Seroquel.
 



 
Okay, thank you for answering these questions. We just need a bit more information to understand your situation.

 

A few more questions:

  1. When did you start taking Ketya?
     
  2. When did you start taking Zestat?
     
  3. When did you STOP taking Zestat?

The insomnia started when I took one injection of xeplion in 17 November 2016

And I used zestat for sleep 5 days later

Zestat did not work.10 days used

That's why I started using ketya.

And ketya did not work

 

Ketya very light

 

Those who experience this side effect sleep with seroquel and cedrina

But I can not sleep
