  1. I've taken one sleep med or another every night for about the last 6-7 years, mostly for sleep maintenance insomnia (although sleep induction insomnia has also been an on & off problem throughout my life). About 9 months ago my pdoc switched me to 10 mg doxepin at bedtime (gabapentin was causing brain-deadness). And the doxepin was working well until recently. Since *approximately* the last time I had the rx refilled, but I'm not sure. The weird thing is that some nights it works just fine like I'm used to, and other nights it doesn't work at all. For instance, last night it took 1.5-2.0 hours to get into 4 hours of twilight sleep (which as some of you know isn't really helpful at all). Poop-out? Maybe a mixture of counterfeit & real pills? I've been using Walmart pharmacy (I know, I know, but it's cheap). The difference between "good" nights and "bad" nights is very striking - I've had poop-out with number of psych drugs in the past and it's always been a slow slide, not this strong contrast between it working and not working.
  2. Hi Guys, I saw a new P doc today and she decided to switch me from 25 mg Seroquel to 15 mg Remeron for sleep. I have never been on Remeron before and I don't know what to expect. Has anyone here gone from Seroquel to Remeron from Remeron to Seroquel? I am curious to know which one worked better for those who have been on both? 25 mg of Seroquel -- I was still waking up in the middle of the night--- and couldn't fall back asleep. A lot of times I would have to take .5 Ativan in order to finally fall back asleep, sometimes after 4 or 5 hours. Didn't want to raise the dose as it makes me feel like brain-dead all day. I'm hoping the Remeron will knock me out within an hour and I will be able to sleep with minimal waking for at least 8 hours. Maybe not feel too zombie the next day? ( asking for too much?) Hopefully the quality of sleep will be better then on Seroquel. Hopefully I won't gain any more weight ( again asking for too much?). Any experiences anyone would be willing to share with me before I drug myself up tonight? ZZZZz thanks oh and also wondering if Remeron helped anyone with depression issues as well as sleep. Like I want to sleep well but if Remeron helped me with my depression and anxiety that would be a bonus.
