I'd like to stick to meds FDA approved for sleep right now. The only off label med I'd consider is a benzo, but not Xanax since I take it during the day. I just don't see that as a good plan to be 24/7 Xanax'd!

You think we're similar? Maybe you're confusing me with someone else, or I with you. I'm not so sure if I remember correctly. Haven't you had meds that you responded to for a while?

As for depression:

I did respond a little to the Effexor, maybe Wellbutrin, but never gave the Paxil or Buspar a fair trial. They all induced extreme apathy and weight gain. Effexor made me nauseous.

Anxiety:

Klonopin was depressing slightly and very sedating. Made me feel drunk too. Xanax is much better. I don't slur my words, it's not depressing, and not too sedating. Xanax actuallys calms me, while Klonopin just knocked me out to the point where nothing could bother me.

ADHD:

You don't have this do you? Mine is inattentive, caused by anoxia from a collapsed lung at premature birth. The combo of Klonopin + Adderall induced terrrrble depression. Can never be sure which is was. I think it was the combo. I've taken the small amounts that I had of each left at separate times and never had such a horrible reaction, just a slight decline in mood.

Straterra did seem to help with the ADHD symptoms dramamtically at first. After a while it was less noticeable. Maybe I should have titrated past 60 mg since I had been on it for 6 months. But I also think it contributes to anxiety, insomnia, and depression. We have since stopped this med.
