Sleep, what's that.
Silverdust, I too have major sleeping problems. I was on Trazadone for a few months but it stopped working. My pdoc put me on Ativan, it works but not as well as it cool. I have been on several sleep meds in the past and have pretty much given up on sleep. I even tried relaxation excersices and biofeedback stuff, which works for a while but became frustrating in the end.
I think my problem is that I have no set time for sleep, for today I feel tired at 11pm, then the next day I do not sleep at all. this is not by choice, but my sleep-wake cycle being messed up by my bipolar.
I am not on effexor, from my past experience I don't do well SSRIs been on three in the past. I am glad you found something that is working well for you. I know how hard that can be, and I am still searching for somehting that works well.
Hope you have a lovely day!
