I'm currently taking Paxil, my sleeping patterns are erratic at best. Trazodone, the Z-drugs etc currently don't work for me.
Remeron has provided relief in the past, but I find it too sedating (needing 12 hours of sleep), and more importantly it numbs my emotions. I never got weight gain from it, but did suffer from significant withdrawals after long term use.
Anyways, I was wondering about agomelatine. To those who have tried it, have you found it to be a good hypnotic? I would welcome SSRI-augmentation, but I'm mostly interested in regulating my sleep (melatonin makes me feel more depressed the next day).
