Do you think it is wise to discontinue all meds? Wouldn't that cause a rebound of anxiety, especially the diazepam? Did you go back down on the zoloft to see if that levels things out for you? I was sleeping well until I had to go back to work today and was agitated much of the night. Didn't help that my wife and I fought some of the day and her job search is putting a strain on things. Have to move to a new apartment and that just adds to the stress. Sleep is the first thing that goes in me and if I could sleep I could cope much better. My sleep usually improves as the week progresses.
I am curious to see how a small dose of ssri and a straight sleeping pill like ambien would do for me. Sleep....the factor I need to handle. But, maybe the ssri would take care of the anxiety which I believe causes much of my problems. Why can't a doctor figure this out? Take care and let me know how the med adjustment goes.
