Yes.: Actually, the best time to take Olanzapine and Lorazepam is at bedtime because they are sedating. Some people take the Olanzapine after supper and the Lorazepam right at bedtime because it is faster acting. If the Olanzapine by itself controls your anxiety and puts you to sleep, you may skip the Ativan (lorazepam) all together and just take it as needed for breakthrough anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Insomnia: There are tons of different sleep aids available, but at this point your insomnia is also caused by the fear/anxiety of not being able to fall asleep.
