Re: Lexapro SLEEP problems ??

Is Lexapro (and other SSRI's) a cause of sleep problems? I'm only taking 5mg of Lexapro and yet like clockwork, I go to sleep easily at 10pm, then wake up 4 hours later. I read or watch tv for an hour, then get sleepy again, and sleep for another 4 hours. Net effect is 8 hours/night.

I think I read somewhere that SSRI's affect REM sleep patterns (not sure what that is exactly).

Anyone else having the 4 hour cycle?
