Our expert says:
I have never heard of any condition in which a person needs to sleep more than the usual person, so as to stay healthy, but I'm sure it's useful for you to be well rested and calm, as it is for all of us. I have seen very good results with risperdal, and there are now generic and cheaper versions available, of the original drug. Your GP and Psychiatrsit will be able to discuss with you what alternatives exist which might be cheaper. I have found Zopiclone usefol for many people, and safe, and there are economical generic versions available.
As Etomine has been around for so long, I'm surprised to hear ( it's not a drug I have prescribed myself ) that it is so expensive.
Sometimes, if one has taken one's usual slleping med at the usual dose, and you're just not getting to sleep, don't lie in bed tossing and urning and worrying about it --- get up, have a warm milky drink and read a book or watch some dull television ( DSTV is becoming reliably boring these days ) until you feel drowsy again, and then go back to bed. The aim is to form the habit of falling asleep in bed, not of being awake and worried.
