Hey there Panda,

I know Remeron has those characteristics, but after my negative experience with trazodone, I am done with sedating antidepressants, as I have found nortriptyline difficult to tolerate also. I am getting some H1 blockade from the Benadryl I am currently taking but wake up several times a night. I've already decided to ask my pdoc about stuff like Halcion or Restoril, which I can take every other night or whatever is necessary to avoid any dependency/tolerance issues. I am not going to take the damned atypical antipsychotic he had brought up at my last visit. It's too expensive, and I have grave misgivings about this class of drugs being prescribed for people with unipolar depression who are just suffering insomnia because of their AD meds.
