Benzo Suggestions Needed

Posted by JohnL on November 29, 1999, at 16:59:10

Hi everyone. I have an appointment soon with my psychiatrist. I'm just not doing all that well. Been feeling pretty dark actually. Anyway, of all the things I've tried with my Prozac, the one thing that has always remained constant was the Remeron for sleep. I am beginning to wonder if its effects in blocking certain receptors is somehow actually getting in the way of other meds working fully. Maybe that's far-fetched, maybe not. All I know for sure is it hasn't helped my depression in a long time. I feel like it gives great sleep at best, and hinders antidepressant therapy at worst. I want to take Remeron out of the mix.

Not sure what else we'll do. Maybe add Effexor. Maybe add a TCA. But sleep is the issue of this post. I want a med that will allow good sleep without blocking any serotonin receptors. I am aware of benzo addiction risks, but I am going to try to talk my pdoc into letting me use one for sleep.

Can anyone help with feedback on their favorite or worst benzos? Research I've done seems to favor Xanax. But I'm looking for feedback to disucss with my pdoc. Thanks everyone. JohnL
