  1. Yup, also been there and done that. Especially when you work for someone who could care less if you are here or not. Hope it's a comfort knowing you're not alone.
  2. I'll be thinking about you as I might be in the same position soon. Good luck with your journey.

  3. I like the first one....
  4. Haven't tried the 50 of Seroquel yet. I decided to see another p-doc on Thursday - 8am of all times, grr, Hopefully she is not as much of a jerk as the last lady I saw who clearly did NOT want to add me as one of her patients and redirected me back to my old p-doc. Just trying to figure this all out in my little smooshy tightly wound brain. You know the "do I start a different AD?", is it just me that can't let go of this insomnia, what's wrong with me, I'm not normal, I can't stand this. You know, all those warm and fuzzy thoughts that totally help. Uh!
  5. That where my insomnia started back up - when I was taking Lamictal. I was probably on week 4 or 5 myself. I ALWAYS tank really bad when I get insomnia. I'm sorry I couldn't be of any more help. I'm not taking Lamictal anymore, but still have insomnia.
  6. Not sure if anyone will respond to my post - yes I'm having a pity party. I've been back on Zoloft 150 mg., and while it has helped level the depression and stave off the anxiety, it has NOT helped combat the chronic insomnia that I developed between medication changes (Zoloft to Lamictal), back in April. I am no longer on Lamictal btw. I got in the bad pattern of taking xanax before bed to help me fall asleep. In the past, I would only take it if I couldn't fall asleep, but not before I went to bed. Of course I'm probably dependent on it now. I am SO frustrated to the point of tears but can't cry - for who knows what reason, am grasping at straws, i.e., is it Zoloft, should I be on a different medication, what should I do, what should I try, the whole spectrum. I feel utterly hopeless.
  7. I'm going to. This is all really starting to freak me out. I'll try the 50 mg. tonight.
  8. What time do you take your Seroquel at night and what is your dosage for sleep? How long does it take you to fall asleep - apx. Took 25 mg. last night and it did nothing. I am beyond exhausted - and desperate for help.
  9. Thanks for your reply Tryp. I am SOOO exhausted ! Doc said to take 1 - 2 (25 mg.) - I was REALLY hoping it would work. I wonder if I should just try 50 mg. tonight? I have not had any really "good" sleep for like 3 months now. I was hoping to ditch the xanax at night and use Seroquel because I know I've become dependent on xanax and don't like to be. I'm really starting to "lose" it if you know what I mean. I keep wondering thinking do I need to go to the hospital? Am I that screwed up? I actually was praying that I would just fall asleep and not ever wake up. At this point I don't know what to do - should I take 50 mg. tonight or not, ugh!
  10. I tried 25 mg of seroquel last night with the hopes it would allow me to sleep more than a few hours. I got drowsy - but did not sleep, Took another 25 mg. a couple hours later - nothing. Finally couple hours later I took 1 mg of xanax and got 4 hours of sleep. I don't know if anyone else has this experience? I certainly did NOT expect to be awake almost all night after taking the Seroquel.
  11. So you are exhausted all day when you take Zoloft in the am? And panic attacks if you take it at night? Has this always been going on? Maybe you need a different medication? Have you talked to your doctor about this?
  12. Thanks for your reply. Seems I got this lovely onset insomnia when I switched from Zoloft to Lamictal. I've since switched back to Zoloft AND the insomnia is still there at night. I just want to throw the Zoloft in the garbage - it worked well the first couple times I was on it but this time...if only I could sleep...then I think I'd feel 100% better.
