SECOND OPINION: If you are having doubts about your Dr.'s medication plan then it is advisable to seek out a second opinion from a Psychiatrist about your medication. It would be important to have a sleep study and a neurological exam conducted by Doctors. Once physical illness is treated or ruled out then it would be good to a consult with a Clinical Psychologist about ways to reduce stress.
