Well said. That says it all. Boy can I relate. Yikes!

But here's an idea I think you'll like. Hopefully you have some Paxil and Remeron on-hand. Have you tried the combination?

Try 20mg Paxil during the day. About an hour before bed take 7.5mg Remeron. If it's a 30mg pill, cut it in quarters with a big knife. Sizes don't have to be exact. If it's a 15mg pill, break it in half.

I have noticed that Remeron's personality changes dramatically with each 7.5mg difference in dose size. That small dose is excellent for overcoming SSRI insomnia, but has none of the daytime dopiness. For me 7.5mg is perfect. Its personality at this dose is characterized by heavy sedation for sleep, but no carryover into the next day at all. I've noticed when I go up to 15mg, I don't sleep as well and I do feel some of the drugged feeling the next day. I really think you should try 20mg Paxil + 7.5mg Remeron. This is a common and good combination. JohnL
