Really, you need a consistent med to help you sleep, though. I've been on Ambien (kinda freaky, had memory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>loss</span>
, didn't like but slept), Trazodone (slept but had heart palpitations), Lunesta (did nothing for me), Remeron (loved the sleep, hated the weight
gain), Ativan (loved the sleep, didn't like idea of dependency) and
now I'm doing the whole Pamelor thing and
it is working so far. As you can see, I have been thru a great deal with the insomnia issue!
