Listen to your doc: Do not seek advice from others who do not know why you are taking these major meds. Listen to your prescribing doctor to avoid unwanted bad side effects. Most psychiatrists use a taper up on one drug and taper down on the other, resulting on both drugs being used at the same time.

Your medication should be managed by a Psychiatrist. If you are not confident in your Doctor please see another for a second opinion. Please see a Clinical Psychologist with expertise in multiple types of psychotherapy to help you and recommend supportive services that may include a sleep study.
