I am all screwed up!

Posted by Andre Allard on June 6, 2000, at 22:07:12

When I first became depressed over a year ago, I slept less. I was on effexor and trazadone for six months and within this time period my sleep was fine. In January, I began manerix. A few weeks later, all I pretty much did was sleep, sleep and then sleep some more. The obvious thought would be that the manerix was sedating me so I discontinued it. I then began prozac and wellbutrin and I bearly slept. Next, I switched to Celexa and experienced mild insomnia. I did not like the fact that I could have sex for as long as I wanted and not climax - the girl I was with at the time did not do any complaining. Since I did not give manerix a full trial the first time I decided to try it once again. This time around, the manerix did not influence my sleep as I was sleeping normally again. It was actually somewhat activating which was surprising. This did not make any sense. The first time I took manerix I was sleeping all day and this time around the effects were activating. I did not think much of the sleep thing until now. I discontinued the manerix because I did not recieve much benefit from it.Since effexor worked for me in the past I went back on it using the same dosage of 225 mg along with trazadone. After three weeks of beginning the effexor once again I began sleeping up to twenty-four hours straight and when I was awake it was only for about four hours at a time. This "sedation coma" continued for two weeks. All of a sudden it went away for another two weeks but then just a few days ago it returned. Last night I slept for eighteen hours straight. I got up, had something to eat, felt wired and now I am ready to go back to bed - I have only been awake for three hours. I know that the effexor is not making me sleepy because I took it for six months previously and was ok. The first time I took the effexor I was wired and now it is putting me on my ass all day. I spent most of January and May in dreamland. What the hell is going on! It is extremely difficult to get things done when your passed out most of the time. If any of you know why my sleep cycles in this manner I would love to know.
