Hi...I'm sorry you feel so bad.  Your lack of sleep is probably playing a big part in your emotions and in your health.  If you're not taking any meds to help you sleep you should ask your doc to prescribe you some.  I had problems sleeping awhile back and was averaging an hour to an hour and a half per night.  My anxiety and anger levels were through the roof!  My doc told me to try OTC benedryl and it helped me sleep five hours a night.  It helped tremendously!  I still have anxiety but not as bad as when I wasn't sleeping well.  Sleep is very important for our bodies health as well as for our mental health.  Hope you feel better soon.  Joni

Is seroquel one of the medicines you've tried? When I took that it literally knocked me out for a good 9-10 hours. The weight gain side effect I could have done without, but I slept better on that than I ever have.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am sure your will find the forum supportive and helpful.
 
I use Trazadone and it has worked for me at 150mg for sleep.  I am sorry to hear it does not help you.
 
I know you will be hearing from other members.
 
Again a warm welcome.
