Hii I am not sure about the diagnosis as you have been prescribed amisulpiride with escitalopram and clonazepam But, for your sleep disturbance, i would suggest that you go for a longer acting drug rather than etizolam Etizolam is an antianxiety medicine with less sedative effect. So if you are unable to sleep with clonazepam, it is unlikely that you would be able to sleep with etizolam
Next Steps
stop clonazepam and instead take nitrazepam 5mgs at night also, if you are taking escitalopram10 at night, shift it to morning
