    One quack dr. a saw several years ago had me on a high dose of topamax during the day and provigil to offset the side effect. I have not slept a 6 hours in months so I took one the other night. I slept from 9pm until 10:00am the next day. I felt drunk but I did get some sleep. Has anyone tried Serequel? I tried this but it made me act and say crazy things.

    I have had a terrible cold. My nose has been so full of yuk that no one could sleep through it. Hopefully, the cold is clearing up.

    Guys, as always, you are in my prayers. I appreciate you taking time to answer my silly questions. The minute I hear any news that could help any of us, this is the first board I hit.

    God Bless.

    Chris,
    Topamax is an anti-seizure drug used for epilepsy and parkinsons patients, originally. I take it for migraine prevention, and it does make me a little sleepy.

    As strong as this drug is , I cannot imagine using it for the purpose of getting sleep. Please be careful.

    Blessings,
    Maia
