I can't comment on Prozac but I've had the same insomnia problem on Effexor.
Even though I'm on the lowest dose and take it in the morning I still can't go to sleep and wake 4-5 times per night, and I wake up most mornings with a pressure-like headache.I've been on it once before and had the same problem so I guess it's not for me! Seeing all antidepressants are basically the same in my opinion you might be one of the unfortunate ones that gets insomnia.
Try and stick it a bit longer and definitely take it in the morning.
Personally, I'm weaning off mine and switching to a herbal alternative with Valium on standby for any breakthrough anxiety I get.
