Hi everyone, I've been sick for 19 months and, in all this time, I have stubbornly refused prescription drugs because I am scared of the side effects/allergic reactions. My sleep is and has always been terrible. It is making me worse the longer I try to treat it with lifestyle changes and OTC supplements; it's time for an Rx. I would prefer an anti-depressant to a hypnotic or traditional sleep drug so I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone (I just realised what a horrible expression that is!). Sleep is definitely my worst issue ~ more so than depression or even pain at this stage. Every doctor suggests something different. Can you experts please tell me what the best anti-depressants for sleep are? I'm scared to take the leap, so I want the first one I try to be a really smart option. Thank you so very much! I appreciate your help!
