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?
