Well, that answers that question, are you able to get out?
Yeah, you have 3 jobs. Whew! You really do get out.
Which is a good thing, but 3 jobs. Whoa!
"She's taking me off Remeron. I loved it. But she doesn't think it's helping because I haven't slept even with it this week."
I'm on Remeron anti-depressant, also, which I take as the generic, or, Mirtazapine, which does me really well, also, to the point that I can sit down and write this.
But the Remeron/Mirtazapine anti-depressant, plus my Lithium for mania, didn't put me to sleep, either.
But this is what helped me.
You might want to give it a try before you get on a new med. You may not want to, it's up to you and your psy.
I take a heath food store capsule called "Power to Sleep," and its put me to sleep fior the past several months.
The bottle says you can take two capsules. So, if the first one doesn't do it after however long, you might want to try a second.
I was taking Melatonin health food store item for sleep, and it put me to sleep, but it made me so groggy in the morning, it was difficult to get back up the next a.m.
So I switched from Melatonin to Power to Sleep health food store sleep aid, and it put me to sleep at night and made me less groggy in the a.m.
I would try this before you start your new med, to see if it works, if it doesn't you can change. (Again, I don't know your situation, so you want to make sure everything is OK before you do this.)
From taking the health store sleep aid, I was able to quit taking the Ativan tranqualizer, so I wasn't as groggy in the a.m. and could get up earlier.
Someone on this board also mentioned "Alteril" as a health store sleep aid.
These tablets can be bought at a health food store or on the net.
You can also look up on the net search engine, health food sleep aides, or something like that, and see what it says.
Maybe when your brain calms down you can come off of some of the meds.
You are a trooper.
