    Sleep can be your best friend,if you have insomnia your enemy.I would hope that doctors after giving ambien,risperdone,having you to believe your bipolar do work figure out why a person can't sleep.I have insomnia,I am not bipolar,I had hypertension crisis damage to body which if a doctor would accept he does'nt know by text book he could figure a patients out.I went through some really hard times because of staying awake I could'nt function the next day or sometimes a whole week due to staying awake eight to ten days.I would take ambien,metolnia,valium,activanjust could not sleep at all that hurts your body I would tremble,not be able to think be parariod,I could not function.their was a time I would sleep five or ten minutes and fill rested if I sleep two hours I felt like I had a hangover.I still don't sleep right I had physical condition adrenaline gland malfunction,piluarty gland tumor,bad eyesight,hypertension,immune deffenancy hormones deffenancy,kidney and heart problems, my heart beat 130 a minute with no adrenaline that slip right pass the doctors until all this happened.I do wish the old school doctors were the new seem to forget asked the patient you don't know everything the patient is your best source of what is going on.LOL I think doctors are ordering kill cards like the army has.I do want to say something if someone has hypertension crisis,shows the lab test 100 levels in protien,pasing blood,too many RBC'S keytones 15 they might need medical attention that is what happened to me,I do have brain damage the doctor knew about the crisis gave six blood pressure pills,sent me home knowing he needed to treat my crisis,with medicine to replace chemicals in brain I hope doctor know hypertension crisis is a killer instead sending a patient home treat them long term affect is pure hell.The doctors actually give the patients the records with the levels of a lab test,remember most patients can read.

    First, if you haven't been checked for Graves disease, you should insist that your doctor gets a test done! Second, be sure each doctor who prescribes a medication, knows everything you're taking. Overmedication & bad drug interaction can be as dangerous as your conditions & cause a slew of crazy side effects! Third, stand up for yourself & don't let a doctor intimidate you! They aren't gods & you know better than any1 what's happening in your body. It is the doctors job to listen to you describe symptoms & then do tests! If your doc barely lets you finish speaking& prescribes with out thorough testing, time for a new doctor! Good luck, have a great week!! 🙂
