      it sounds like we have been on it for the same length of time at the same amount.  at 15 it was fine for mefor sleep but then it was increased for the depression.... now trying to reduce as instructedby psych.  just see if you can take 3/4 of a pill. maybe we can try it together. but i am going to have to take something for the depression ... it's there. positive thoughts to you lesley
