I'm sorry you're still having so much trouble getting sleep and also being depressed. I posted a while back suggesting that you ask your dr about Trazodone (antidepressant that helps sleep). I just wondered if you had talked to your dr about it and if so what the response was. One thing I failed to mention about Trazodone is that though I was prescribed it for depression and found that it also induced good sleep, my cousin was prescribed Traz. to induce REM sleep. That's the good sleep that helps our bodies feel rested and refreshed. You probably know that. Anyway, wanted to let you know that. Also, when I was put on it, I would have to take it and go right to bed or I would fall asleep almost standing.

My anxiety disorder is much better at the moment, but depression is making my life miserable. I take Effexor XR 250mg and Lamictal 150mg (anti-seizure med). I believe the Lamictal has really helped the anxiety. I was in a head-on collision when I was 20 and had a head injury so the possibility of that causing some of the anxiety indicated the Lamictal. It's certainly helped. , I'm 49 now -- severe anxiety began two years after accident. Just thought I would share this with you. I'm pulling for you AND praying for you. It WILL get better!!
