Can you try asking your prescriber for an alternative that does work? What is the rationale behind the insistence of your taking the current meds?

I saw my doc about 2 weeks ago and told her that is wasn't working so the doubled my seroquel and the vistaril and said it would work and she said i could take two of the stronger vistaril so thats like 4x the original dose and it still don't work. I am in a program called the Jail diversion program that gives me my meds for free but i they won't prescribe any controlled substances or addictive medicine basically nothing that you can use recreationally. they keep trying to shove this vistaril shit at me with out offering a alternate med. I wondered if any one was on one that does work so i can go in with a suggestion for something that does work.
