> I also suffer from extremely detailed dreams which linger in my thoughts throughout the day. My psy. says I would need a sleep study to figure this out. Am I killing myself or just losing my mind?

It's possible you are awakening frequently in the middle of the night without realizing it. This could contribute to your daytime tiredness (along with those kids and that job!) and also make it more likely that you will remember your dreams. Also, while Luvox tends to decrease the amount of time you spend in REM sleep (the sleep in which bizarre dreaming occurs), it increases the number of REMs (the REM density) and can cause vivid dreaming as a side effect.

BTW, unless you have pain as well as insomnia, I'd suggest using plain diphenhydramine for sleep rather than a combination drug like Tylenol PM. Acetaminophen (another ingredient in Tylenol PM) is not great for your liver, so you shouldn't take it unless you need it.
