I LOOOOVE Xanax for that reason. I don't always have insomnia. There are periods of time where I sleep like a rock, and actually have a hard time getting out of bed. Then I go through periods of time where I have a tough time falling asleep and staying asleep....I'm probably going to try taking nothing this weekend to see if I'm over this little speed bump.

But back to the Xanax, it's perfect for those times when you wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. It only lasts for a few hours and I feel perfectly fine when I wake up, even if I take it at 3 am. You can't take any other drug (that I know of) in the middle of the night and still wake up fine like that. It's not something I want to make a habit of, but it's a great standby for those "emergency" situations in the middle of the night. I occasionally take it before bed if I know I'm going to have a tough time falling asleep, but I became dependent on it for sleep several years ago, so I'm more careful now and I use it more sparingly. Xanax sleep is just so good and peaceful. It's salvaged many days for me, because if I don't get enough sleep, I'm completely worthless and getting through the day is complete torture. I'm out of Xanax right now:(

> I experienced the same problem on Remeron. It actually added to my depression. If it hasn't gone away after a month, then I'd say ask for something else from your pdoc.
