> Interestingly, the spontaneous hypertension I was having after a dose (unrelated to food) seems to be getting better. We've gone up on my dose very gradually- I've just started 70 mg this week. Sleep is a nightmare (pun intended)- Trazadone helps a bit, but leaves me feeling washed out the next day. Sonata did nothing for my sleep. I have a bit of dizziness sometimes when I stand too quickly, but not troublesome and otherwise very few side effects so far. I haven't noticed much benefit yet, though. If anything, I feel more withdrawn and antisocial, though more content and less depressed about being alone, if that makes sense.

Wow - 70mg and no effect? I wonder if this is going to be the drug for you. I felt soemthing by 60mg or so, and the benefit increased as I increased the dose. I hope you start feeling a bit better soon.

Don't be too afraid of cheese. Some of the cheeses have basically no tyramine. I wouldn't worry about cream cheese, ricotta cheese, fresh mozzarella, chevre, montrachet, etc. You may be a little more wary with feta, brie, gruyere, muenster, etc.

Some people like Klonopin for sleep. I prefer the Trazodone personally, but I've tried Klonopin too. You may want to try it. I don't recommend Sonata or Ambien because they're real sleep medications that will build up in your system causing an addiction or need for increased dose. Klonopin can be addicting, but as a sleep aid I've never heard of it being so. (I guess some people take it as a street drug - always seemed strange to me.)

Anyway, good luck with the increases. If you feel too dizzy, try splitting the dose into three or so times per day.
