> I'm taking it both to help fall asleep, keep me from waking up several times a night and for depression.

I used to wake up at 3AM and would lie there tossing and turning and never felt like I had a good nite's rest. That was a good nite, many times I could NOT go to sleep AT ALL!! would stare at the clock and hate the sound of my husband's deep restful breathing - many times I was so angry at him I had to leave our bed and go to the couch. Still did not sleep but also was not so angry. Needless to say I was a wreck from sleep depravation alone.

But since I have started Lex, I sleep soundly through the nite, I fall asleep easily and quickly. I sleep so soundly my husband has commented that he can hardly rouse me in the wee hours (he's a nite owl).

I've been on it 15 mos. and still sleeping well, depression under control, it's the PMS I still have trouble with.

I have heard from my pdoc that Traz is used as a sleep aid as it is very sedating, and he recommended Lex as not being quite as bad. I have started drinking more coffee than I used to and that helps. Also have found that Lex can fool you into thinking you are tired but if you get moving and working on projects that feeling evaporates quickly.

Good luck to you!~~~8|8
