Our expert says:
I'm a bit puzzled by this combination of medications, is they are purely intended to treat insomnia.
Of Etomine, the SA Medicines Formulary says : " Clothiapine.... is potently sedative. However, it has a considerable potential to cause extrapyramidal reactions, and it is recommended that indications for parenteral use be restricted to acute mania, agitated schizophrenias and acute organic psychoses. "
and Geodon is Ziprasidone, and antipsychotic, used to treat schizophrenia, and the manic phase of bipolar disorder.
SO I'm puzzled. I wouldn't have ever thought of using either of these meds, alone or in combination, to treat insomnia, so I can't guess what your psychiatrist is aiming at. Maybe you have other conditions troubling you and complicating the picture, as well. I can only suggest that you discuss this with your psychiatrist, and explore why other more orthodox treatments for insomnia have not been used ( or maybe they have all been tried and have not proved to be effective ? )
