Thanks for the advise Robert. I am going to try either Luvox or Lexapro next (possibly Remeron)

The main sympton of my problem is not being able to fall asleep. It is not because me thinking of things or anxiety, it is definitely some kind of chemical imbalance where my sleep won't trigger.

Effexor fixed this problem twice in the past. So my question is, does Effexor cause 5HT2 antagonism and is that how it made my sleep get back to normal?

Do these other drugs (Remeron, Luvox, Paxil, Lexapro) have 5HT2 antagonism action?

Is 5HT2 antagonism what I really need in the case of not being able to sleep (although they might cause more restlessness at first before correcting the imbalance)?

Or do I want something that doesn't antagonize 5HT2?

Are there natural methods/herbs/nutrients that antagonize 5HT2?

I know these are a lot of questions, but I would appreciate any help. Thanks
