I was taken 20mg a day for 20 years and stopped taken it 4 months ago. I'm having real sleep problems. I though maybe I could take 10mg and get some sleep. will it cause me harm or will it help?
There are better antidepressants like trazodone and mirtazipine in low doses that help sleep. You could ask about those. It's important to keep in mind that your sleep problems could be depression symptoms returning. Even not sleeping enough can be caused by depression even though we like to think it makes us sleep more.
