I have always wondered about whether others out there were suffering from the same ridiculous sleep cycle problems I have been dealing with for so many, many years. Any medecine with an SRI component in it eventually causes me to sleep a minimum of 10 hours, and many times 15, 16, 18, etc. To me, it's always been the worst feeling in the world to wake up so late and realize you've missed the entire day. What's even more infuriating is to realize that most people don't get this problem when they take these meds. The worse one of all for me was Effexor. Then of course, when I tried to get off, the withdrawl practically crushed me. I tried all kinds of ways to keep myself awake, including stimulants, melatonin, 5-HTP, and other compounds. Some of them worked for a little while (melatonin and stimulants), but evenutally they all faded out, and I was left sleeping 15 or so hours per day. I don't think I've ever come across one doctor or fellow patient who was able to help me with this. Ironically, one day on this board, I saw a thread about MAOIs where the poster claimed they made him sleep all the time. That was disheartening.
