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 may be referred for a sleep study.
