one vote for amitriptyline - I had chronic insomnia because my mind is racing and buzzing 24/7. amitrip put me out and I got beautiful deep sleep no ematter how wound up I was. Depending on the dose I actually sleep less and feel more refreshed. Healthy sleep is so important to 'normal' functioning and insomnia adds immensely to the burden we have to carry
note amitrip is a TCA and very sedating and not as safe as an SSRI - if you think about trying it talk to your doctor or be cautious and do all your research.
