There is evidence that SSRIs can definately impact sleep archetecture negatively.

I rememeber on celexa, I would just about phase out and then boom I would wake up again, (this pattern would repeat itself for hours and hours)
On the days that I slept the worst, the AD effect would be the best. If I slept sound, the day would be very bla, and blue.

Deep restorative sleep may be depressing, but it is healthy for the brain. I am under the belief that the apathy, and the zombie like states I was experiencing were a result of lack of restorative sleep.

I also belive that there are psychological effects of a lack of orgasm. I read somewhere that after an orgasm certain powerful chemcials are relased that help you concentrate. When I go for weeks without one, who knows the concequenses !??

A lot of the drug layering (stimulants, sedatives, anticonvulsants, etc) seemed to be in responce to problems that came up from sleep deprivation.

I know that sleeping better coming off them has been benifical. I am very blue the next day, but certain things have definately improved, like the ability to read things and ability to focus on whats infront of me. I am not apathetic, just very blue.
