In brief: Seek Help Quickly

Decreased sleep often accompanies increasing manic symptoms.
If you are experiencing that much trouble sleeping, you need to get in touch with your physician as soon as possible to see adjustments need to be made in your medication to try to get more help.

Sleepless night final link in chain leading to mania.
Essential to have good sleep hygiene. Let your doc know, or go to local er, for something to help you sleep before you end up with full blown mania.
