Question sleeeeep help need sleep, what should i do?

sleep has not been a luxury for me. i am taking 1 1/2 mg of clonazopam and 2 pills of immovaine for the insomnia(doctor says it's the max dosage).

the last few months i had been staying up later and taking my meds later, and sleeping just fine. when i needed to sleep earlier, i'd take my meds before bed as always and sleep just fine. then! the psychiatrist told me to take my meds before 1 a.m.(that is very early for me. i'm on winter break and a bit of a night owl.) so i took them. i passed out at around 3am and woke up at 5am. trouble. i have been a sleeping mess ever since. unable to sleep for more than 5 hours during the night and waking up at 4am. i tried holding out w/o a nap yesterday till 10pm.. but nope. still no success. i still can not sleep passed 5 hours. so take little naps here and there. now the problem is i start school tomorrow and i have a 10 hour day. i'm scared i'll get no sleep and pass out in class. should i just take a quadruple dose of all my meds? just to knock myself out tonight? how do i sleep?

thanks all

Sounds like something else is going on to prevent you from sleeping maybe you need a new doctor. Good Luck

I was desparate and tried acupuncture. My acupunctu****t also sold me some herbal pills called "the Emperor's tea pills". The 2 together worked for me.
