Since they all make you very tired best to take them in the evening.

I was told to take mine on a night, I'm on lithium and valium for when I can't sleep. I take the lithium at 10:30 & valium at 8ish.

For myself, I take 200mg of Carbamazepine in the morning and 20mg of Aripripazole. Then at night I take 400mg of Carbamazepine and 150mg of Venlafaxine.

I take 20mg of fluoxetine in morning then 400mg or seroquel at roughly 6pm-ish when I get home from work. I usually ready for bed about 8 or 9 pm.

750mg Depakote in the morning
300mg Seroquel in the evening - 10pm
750mg Depakote in the evening - 10pm
Diazepam when needed.

Do you take the Olanzapine in the evening ? If not i'd reccommend that you should because Olanzapine should also work as a sleeping aid.
