> i feel so horrible in bed. and i just cant sit still. it's like i have to keep moving as if a distraction from all the mental pain. i cant sleep. i got so little if any today and this is going on since 3 days ago. all of a sudden i went from being tired and sleeping okay to now hardly being able to SLEEP AT ALL.

> And i am feeling worse. my health is deteriorating. i tried immovane the sleep med but it's junk. doesn't work for me at all. i dont want some silly 'hypnotic' i want something to cause drowsiness so i can actually SLEEP. IS there something over the counter now, not even sleeping pills but like meds for like the flu or whatever or tylenol stuff or whatever is out that causes drowsiness? and i need HUGE drowsiness.

> also i am losing what is left of my tiny appetite and am starting to be anorexic. it is just so hard to put ANYTHING in my mouth. and my ups and downs every day are turning more into downs and less ups (and the ups are pathetic anyway). i am really losing it. and i dunno what the hell to do. so many meds actually make me worse. i dunno what to try but i need something. i got apointment for a special clinic in difficult to treat depression this june 3rd. maybe they will put me on some new stuff.

You can get some Benadryl OTC. It works for me better than benzos (25-50mg). It also settles down agitation almost as well. You might ask your doctor about some trimipramine (Surmontil) to help you sleep. Other possibilities to help you sleep and boost your appetite might be Depakote (a mood stabilizer), or Remeron.
