Am I right in hoping yo have discussed these concerns with your own doctor ? Remember my often repeated point, that I don't believe ANY such condition is comprehensively managaed if only a bunch of meds are used, unless counselling, usually of the CBT form, is used. Drugs can help greatly to control mood swings, but don't help deal with agravations at work or in relationships - ONLY counselling can help you deal with those.
Rivotril is n't usually used for sleep problems, and Stilnox is a very viable sleeping medicine, designed to stop working in a few hours so as to avoid hangovers in the morning. I don't understand, though, the idea of taking one in the morning - did he explain that ?
You MUST tell him about the painkillers you take. These can cause problems in their own right, but can also potentially interfere with the actions of other drugs. Some might cause or worsen sleep problems. And so on.
You are overworking and feeling under-valued, and it sounds as though your manager may be over-controlling, and under-helpful ! - again, you can learn to handle such situations with CBT counselling, not with drugs as such. Make sure some such counselling is aded into your treatments
