I keep obsessing about starting new medications

Hey Everyone!! This is christine!!! Im so tired!!! Havent slept in 3 days. My doctor is trying to get me off seroquel, because the doctor thinks I have to much of it in my blood and thats its causing problems. The situation is this 6 months ago, (me being foolish) stooped seroquel cold turkey) which I was on this drug for 6 years. and 6 years straight this drug used to put me to sleep at 100mgs. I stooped this drug for a month in a half and that whole time I couldnt sleeep , I guess this drug caused me to be an insomniac. I finally went back on it, but couldnt sleep at the original 100mgs, so i tried more and eventually the more i tried it worked for me to sleep, but now the doctor thinks i have to much medication in my blood. I dont think so, because my problems started during that period of which I stopped my meds for a month. ( when I stooped my seroquel for a month and didnt sleep I developed numbness and tingiling sensations). During this month i wasnt on any medication, and I still developed numbness and tingiling sensations. I never had this before. When I was on seroquel for 6 years i never had this. Then i stop for a month and dont sleep that whole time i develop these weird problems. The doctoe lowered my seroquel to 200mgs and i cant sleep with that. I can only sleep with 75mg of trileptal and 300mgs of seroquel, but he wants me off of those pills, so he gave me trazodone. I took that last night and it didnt do anything for me. It supposed to make you sleep. but it didnt for me. Oh yeah I forget to tell you how i keep goign on and on about side effects of a medication, before i take it. I have to ask everyone around me do you know anything about this med or that med, then i have to do reserarch, then before i take it i still think im going to get one of the side effects. This is crazy, but i guess thats OCD!!!! swomeone please help!! how can i get rid of being an insomniac? did anyone else get this way from these meds.
