Hi. Well, now my doc has given me Zoloft to try. I am scared kinda. i really don't want to be screwing around with my already screwed up sleep. What does it mean that I'm more concerned about treating sleep than my Dysthemia? Maybe I'm not that depressed? Cause if I was, wouldn't I be doing ANYTHING to help with that, regardless of sleep issues? hmmmmmmmmm. I am functioning in life - going to work, to night classes, to my hobby group, and once in a blue moon i have a good/happy day...but I am down alot and it's certain events - ie seeing my ex, or thinking about his family, that set me off to more depressed. Basically, could I be not depressed "enough" to warrant medication??? Argh.

Ditto with Noa.

It is a side effect that will soon disappear. (This is why we are trapping up slowly on these medicines, so the side effects can wear off.
> I just went up from 300mg to 450mg, and once again going through just what you were describing. I just want to sleeeep... And I dream a lot - and every time that I wake up I am in the middle of a dream and I just want to go back there and I feel so warm and cozy in my bed and ...
> well, I'll enjoy it while it lasts, and just try to eventually get up while the sun in still up (don't stay in bed all day, watch out for SAD) and see to that I do something every day to participate in my life.
> I talked with a woman a couple of weeks ago, who told me that she was fine with 50mg serzone / day... She's the only one I've heard of - I think she was having a good placebo-response. Wish I could do that.
