Anxious at bedtime - how do you cope?

Everynight as I lie in bed reading, etc...I start having all these terrible thoughts that I can't seem to stop. I've tried meditating and clearing my mind, but I'm not very good at it. I also have mild depression. I'm on 150mg of Wellbutrin/2 times a day.

I need advice:
1) Should I do talk therapy?
2) Should I have doc increase meds (is there a higher dose of Wellbutrin)?
3) What kind of methods do you use?

I DON'T want to go on another drug or do a combo. I've tried Prozac, Zoloft and Paxil and they all screwed me up with those weird side effects. Wellbutrin works well for me and I'm not sure I'm willing to try any other drugs.

I've just recently started Wellbutrin again (I've been on it about a month). Are these initial side effects that wear off? The first time I was on it, I don't remember being sleepless (though maybe I was at the beginning)...

Thank you!

let your doctor know about you bedtime anxiety. Ask if ambien, klonopin, or an antihistamine would help or maybe something else
