Bipolar Mania and Insomnia

Hi, my mom is 54 years old and was diagnosed with bipolar mania. She can get anger and aggressive within a second. She is very pessimistic and can be very reckless sometimes, not thinking about the consequences. She is also a compulsive buyer.

From what i know she was always like this, she only got worse as an adult.

She also suffers from insomnia and fibromyalgia (developed recently for being nervous of course).

She is taking
Clonazepam 2mg
Cymbalta 2x60mg
Seroquel XRO 300mg
Topamax 50mg

She only got slightly better. I don't believe anything pharmaceutical will work.

Only thing that worked. First day with seroquel, she only took 25mg of the regular. It was the only time i've seen her doing well. She was in a state of regret and fear, which was actually a good thing because she was saying "i feel like i have being out for many years, now i'm conscious again" but this only went to last like 3 days. A result like that with homeopathy would be great.

Anyone know something for insomnia and mania? thanks everyone
