Celexa, Trazodone and 5htp

Posted by Amanda on July 23, 1999, at 14:52:49

I have been on 20mg. of celexa for over 2 months. It has worked great for me - not as sedating as serzone. However, one major side effect is insomnia. I can fall asleep okay and two hours later I'm wide awake. I take
25-50mg of trazodone for sleep. I hate being on two different kinds of medications and I hate not getting regular sleep. I tried going off celexa cold turkey - my sleep came back, but so did my depression. I want to get off these pills. I went to see a natural path yesterday to maybe find a natural route of taking medicin and he perscribed me 60mg of 5htp and 600mg of St. John's Wort. He told me that it's a bad idea to go off ssri's cold turkey - It's hard on your body and your depression will feel worse than ever.
He told me to wean off the celexa by cutting it in half ( 10mg.)along with the 5htp and St. John's Wort.
Has anyone had success with this?
Does anyone know if it is safe to take Celexa, Trazodone, 5htp and St. John's Wort together?
Also, is 5htp all natural and better for you than an ssri medication?

Thank - you : )
