has anyone else had sleep problems while on prozac? I have a very hard
time getting to sleep at night.
Am about to ask my doctor for some sleep medication.

I too had 2 switch 2 taking it in the morning, and i think u are supposf 2 take it in the morning and the dr. didn't tell me that. I don't like the extended release formula, and can only take 10 mgs or i start noticing some anxiety at 20 mgs. If it is working except 4 the insomnia, ask ur dr. if u can take a lower dose and c if that helps. It is the only antidepressant that actually helped me feel calm. You also might ask the pharmacist if ur's is an extended release or a continual release. The ones i took that worked were tablets not capsules. Hang in there and feel better.

Is taking more than your normal dose of prozac the main cause for sleep problems (not overdosing)?
