The depression is not to bad but the chronic sleepiness, after 14 hours sleep at night plus naps, is really getting old. Stimulants are out due to passed abuse, I have been through the TCA's. Any helpful suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Mitch
Thank you for your response. In answer to your questions; there does not seem to be any seasonal or cyclical component to the depression. A sleep study and cutting back on the Zoloft are very good suggestions, I will follow up and let you know. I do appreciate your help.
