to half a pill (7.5 mg) a night and put me back on zoloft (50 mg)... she also put me on anti-anxiety meds... Clonazepam... ativan was not working for me anymore. With my insomnia I got to say I have slept really good the last 3 days. I have never started zoloft with a high mg before. They are trying to wean me off the remeron (which I have been on for a month now) It was not working and made me gain 10 pounds. I been off ambien for 2 weeks now... (I was taking restoral before that and it was not working) she wants me to get a sleep study done. She says she wants to fix the depression first and then the insomnia. I seem to be always switching back and forth on medication. Well if i am up the whole night I start getting anxiety at 4am and if I get no sleep the next day I am tired and get depressed.
So sorry you're struggling like this. If you trust your Dr best to just follow the instructions, makes sense to treat the depression (not "fix" it) as it's probably the key to the insomnia. Any social changes you can make? Sometimes what we do with our time can make a bigger impact than meds do. Hang in there.
