> I'm the freak who gets tired from wellbutrin. Tired as in, I want to go to sleep, I better not drive my car tired. And yet at night, I can't sleep even with the remeron. Pdoc told me to take the WB at night tonight with the remeron. I did. I don't think that was particularly wise. Brain feels quite "zingy" now. (Yes, zingy is a technical term.)

I reacted somewhat atypically to Wellbutrin SR myself, as I always took the 2nd dose right at bedtime and slept better than I have on any other antidepressant. However, the morning dose had no direct effect I could discern. In regard to starting up MAOIs, for me it was somewhat similar in that I did (and continue to) experience insomnia with Nardil, just as I did with Prozac, Zoloft, and Effexor. However, rather than getting blasted with insomnia right away as I did with Zoloft and Effexor, I didn't experience any adverse effects until I got up to 60 mg/day of Nardil. I think other people who experience insomnia often encounter it at lower dosages than this. I've suffered a variety of other side effects also, but more at higher dosages. The drop in blood pressure and heart rate I've experienced is the most serious side effect and is barely tolerable. The stuff is the most effective antidepressant I've tried, though.
