Best antidepressant for sleep?

    Hey Heaps, my experience with speed is that it's speed on me. A friend sent me some flexeril to try so I should have that Monday. In the meantime I got some liquid melatonin to try. I can at least get a few hours of sleep with 20 mgs of melatonin.

    I have an appointment with her mid September but I just found a Naturopath who I'm going to see after I see my P Doc and get some current labs. I need to move the appointment up with the P Doc and maybe get the naturopath to get on the sleep case.

    As for my P Doc I doubt if she will do anything out of her views of medicine which are very middle of the road. A few months ago I tried some new meds. I asked her if she would give me 2 or 3 RX's of maybe 5 pills each to try and she refused. There's no way she would give me something without texts to confirm I needed it.

    The thing is, I actually don't know if the Trazodone is a problem or not. Since sleep deprivation for me gives me the same symptoms I have no clue and I have to keep taking small doses of the traz so I don't go into withdrawal.

    If what is going on with me, feeling like air is pumped into my head and constant fog and drugginess is not the meds then what. I just need to hold out until I can see the Naturopath. She's as close to help as I'm going to get right now.

    Oh, the problem is no matter how tired I am my brain just keeps going. I almost never nap and by the end of the day I'm awake again usually. If I don't sleep tonight I will in a day or two.

    Thanks for the help. I'll take your suggestions to the new doc.


    Just got my 23andMe kit today because the naturopath wants to check for mutant genes. LOL
