See psychiatrist: If you are on Geodon, (ziprasidone) Seroquel, and Ativan, and it's not working, it's clear your underlying psychiatric issues are not well controlled. Call your psychiatrist and make an appointment with him/her to address your concerns, as you likely need some adjustments to your current medication dosing/choices.

First please have a complete physical examination to know if you have an illness. If not, 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 and possibly a sleep study.
