> > Hello all. I have insomnia, no real depression that I can tell, and I have taken ambien for years. The doctor said no more, and has tried me on paxil, (disaster) and now lexapro. I did not sleep and I feel awful. What to do? Thanks Spot
> I have had insomnia all my life and it had nothing to do with depression. I was never depressed until a year ago. Why no more ambien? If it was working and you were not abusing it why were you taken off it. If its a family doctor time to see another doctor or someone who specializes in sleep disorders. TAKE CARE!!!
My gp just said it was not good for me. He kept saying something about serotonin uptake dysfunction. When I told him I don't like anti-depressants, he mentioned that I get along well with valium. I use 5mg valium occasionally for stress rescue. I don't use it to sleep. What kind of doctor do I try to find. I hate feeling this way. I run a city and i can't afford to not be at the top of my game. I'm so new to this. Thanks, Spot
