Good Morning and yes I used to have that problem. Now I take my AD in the morning and at bedtime I use Trazodone 100 mg which works well for sleep.
Sorry to here you having this problem.
Have you tried any of the home remedies that many people use: a cup of warm milk with honey, a hot bath, don't eat before bed are just a few. I am sure other members will be along with awesome ideas for you.
Hang in there hun, and I wish you a good night's sleep.
Hi there- I can certainly identify. For 3 years on Aropax, I was a total insomniac. This unfortunately was when I was finishing high school and fell asleep in every class during the day, due to NO sleep at night. After this I switched to Prozac- another 3 years of sheer hell and no sleep. I cant tell you what to do because the only thing that worked for me was switching meds again and *hoping* this would work- and it did. Im now on Zoloft and 4mgs of Xanax. Ive been on that combo for over 6 years and it works great. My sleep is still al little fractured and I often have nightmares, but at least I can close my eyes and drift off, which for years just did not happen.
I wish you all the best and hopefully someone else can be more helpful- I would consider asking if you could increase your Xanax dosage?
.25 Xanax is not a high dose, maybe you could call your Dr. and try .5 for a while and see if that helps. I am absolutely evil when I do not sleep enough or well. I was never able to tolerate AD meds, so my Dr. finally went at it from another angle and treated my anxiety with Buspar and Xanax when needed and my anxiety/depression went away and has stayed away. It took me a long time to find the right mix but so far this is working great for me and I am sleeping well.
I hope you get some sleep soon! Good luck.......
May I ask what you dosage is for the Buspar? If your not comfortable answering that is ok or you could just shoot me an email.
Thank you so much for sharing and I truly appreciate your indepth response.
I am truly happy that you have found a combo of meds that works for you.
Your info was very helpful for me.
You are welcome Kitt. I do get a bit "wordy" sometimes.
