Actually, I am the same way. The night brings a sence of mental and physical peace. I always think of this statistic when I think of mornings....that more people die of many diseases in the morning..more people have heart attacks in the morning..morning is also the pro-cortisol time of day. It is what I think gives us with mood problems a real "kick in the ass" that we (anybody!) don't deserve.

Have you tried taking your meds a bit earlier in the evening? Even with, or just after, supper, it might help temper your body down to feel a bit more like sleeping at night. Just a thought.

Ambien is just as 'addictive', maybe less, than any antidepressant. People have to continue to take a.d.'s, often at large amounts, for a long time, and this is 'less' addictive then a med you don't even need every night for sleep?(Ambien)

Best wishes..

> Hi Mr. Beev,
> Thanks for the reply! Actually, I have a whole mess of stuff going on... Nardil I take for atypical depression and social phobia. I also take risperdal, depakote, and neurontin, and ambien for sleep. I didn't know ambien was addictive. What do you mean when you say addictive? I found zyprexa helpful also but I was taking it for irritability and agitation. The only problem with it was that I would twitch every few seconds. This isn't so much a problem with risperdal. Anyway, thanks for the post!
