Having been off the lunesta for 3 days my sleep is getting bad. I woke up about an hour or so after sleeping and was able to sleep about 5 hours. I then awoke at 4 and was sooo restless the rest of the night. The funny thing is I don't feel anxious at all today, just dog tired from not sleeping. I think things are going numb and I wonder if it is my brain trying to stem the anxiety flood.

I am thinking that I will have to try luvox or an ssri. My sleep is so out of whack right now. I have done cbt and it helps but not enough to calm me for sleep. I just can't get that restfull, blissful sleep like I used to. I worry about start up anxiety with an ssri. It seems so many people have done well with lexapro, etc., after the initial start up so I am hopeful.

Have you ever tried an ssri Jules? I know the only dose of remeron that I can take is 3.75. I know the docs won't believe it but it is enough to help me sleep without all of the sponge head problems. Although I have head fatigue due to not sleeping well. It is a tought decision and I don't want to wait until I am so bad I am not functioning at all.

I hope things work out for you. We deserve better.
