Sleeping medication and anti-depressiants...

I've been having some real trouble sleeping and am wondering if I should take some sleeping pills.

I try to get myself to sleep but it just doesn't seem to work.

Anyway I take zoloft(on 125mg, working great for me), that too can keep me up.

Im not sure if its good to mix the meds with sleeping pills. Im not sure if there could be unwanted side affects.

Also, would tynol affect me with the zoloft.

I think it's best to speak to your doctor about your sleeping problems and get him/her to give you some sleeping pills, then it would certainly be safe. My doctor gives me Diazepam (sometimes 5mg, sometimes 2mg) from time to time, but it cannot be used for a long term, coz it's highly additive...

I take three antidepressants, a mood stabilizer and a sleeping med. I am taking Temazapam and before that it was Trazadone. A big thing with antidepressants and sleep is to know their effect. I take Effexor, Wellbutrin in the morning as they both tend to stimulate and Remeron at night which is very sedative.

take care
