Depression, meds and insomnia

Posted by splatter on May 29, 2004, at 17:06:23

I've had some pretty severe depression with a twist of Social Anxiety for years, and it seems that everything that alleviates my issues gives me unbearable insomnia. I've used GHB, Rhodiola, mucuna pruriens, Sam-E, selegiline, GABA, L-Tyrosine - all these help my depression greatly. The trade-off is that they all keep me awake, and I have a hard time dropping off to sleep even with valerian root, kava kava, and benzodiazapenes. It seems like my metabolism gets stuck in the 'energized' gear, and I just can't relax at bedtime. What was pleasantly stimulating during the day becomes torture at night.
Can anyone relate? Why does my body rev up on things that act as sedatives to others?
