Depression is a very lonely illness, and despite a little progress, there is still a huge stigma attached to it. Anyway, I've been taking Wellbutrin for about eight months, and it has worked wonderfully. In the past three weeks, nowever, I've suffered from terrible insomnia. I can't fall asleep (as I type this, I haven't been to sleep since the night before, and I'm wide awake), or if I do manage to fall asleep, I wake up 2-3 hours later and am unable to go back to sleep. I'm so frustrated to the point of tears. I take Ambien, which worked wonderfully for awhile. Apparently, I've built a tolerance to it. I really like it because it only stays in your system for 7 hours, and then it's completely gone. (no "hangover" feeling, like from valium, etc.) Tonight, I took an Ativan in addition to my Ambien, and still nothing. Does anyone know of anything comparable to Ambien that might work on me? I'm desparate! Thanks, Joanne

Many thanks to michele, S.Suggs, and jamie for all the great info. I'm seeing my pdoc Thursday, and I'm going to ask him about each of your suggestions. In response to michele, sorry, I'm still kind of getting the hang of this thing, and I wasn't sure my message posted; therefore, like any amateur computer user would do, I hit the "Submit" button 20-25 times. Nothing happened, so I rewrote a shorter message, and hit that one a couple of times as well, and it seemed to go through. sincere thanks to all of you. I'll let you know how it goes. joanne
