> for sleep I take doxylamine 25 mg, ativan 1mg, 10mgs propranolol, and 2mg prazosin.

Gosh. I think this is a job for Ed_UK.

I would think that propranolol is a potential culprit for the mood/behavioral symptoms you experience in the morning. Not sure. You could remove it temporarily to see what happens. Alternatively, you could try increasing the doxylamine to determine if it is responsible for these symptoms. I know that everyone is different, but prazosin 20 mg/day does not affect my desire to socialize. In addition, prazosin does not help with sleep. However, it has a positive impact on depression. I divide prazosin in dosing 3 times a day.

What happens when you raise the Ativan to 2 mg h.s.?

What other drugs have helped with these things?

Trazodone:
1. Weak SRI
2. Anticholinergic


Doxylamine:
1. Antihistamine
2. Anticholinergic


Paxil:
1. Strong SRI
2. Anticholinergic

Paxil can help with IBS (anticholinergic) as well as depression and social anxiety (SRI).
