A question about traz. if you don't mind? I completed 11 ECT treatments 2 weeks ago and currently take 40mg Parnate (strong dopamine effect). After 8 weeks the Parnate is beginning to help the depression (i am TRD-have taken the SSRIs, TCAs, and mood stabilizers) but the insomnia is almost unbearable. I took traz. when it first came out many years ago and hyped as a good AD. I gained 40 pounds in the first few months and spent two years trying to stay awake during the daytime. At present 1mg. of Klonopin along with 20mg of Ambien gives me 3-4 hours sleep some nights and some nights none at all. I have a past history of Benzo. abuse so I can't go further in that direction. The pdoc wants me to use traz., I am sure it will do the trick for sleep but can't tolerate the daytime "sleepiness". In your opinion would a 50mg. dose every third night be sufficient? I am aware of the problems associated with sever insomnia (please see my above post to dragonfly). Thanks so much for any suggestions you might be able to offer.

Geezer
