Yeah, I used to have this problem also, especially when I would lay down to sleep. Here's a poem I wrote about it:

It's called "ruminating". It stopped for me when I began taking Effexor for depression. Effexor has enabled me for the first time in as long as I care to remember to control my thoughts and not be plagued by a constant barrage of uncontrolled thoughts.
