    Sharon, this was not my experience but it seems like everyone is different when it comes to these drugs. Have you checked with your doctor?

    Hi Sharon.

    I was wondering how you are and how much you're sleeping. I'm exactly the same. Sleep is all I want. Day and night. It's a real struggle to be enthusiastic about anything. I am trying to reduce my dose but either way I think about sleep. ??

    iys an absolute struggle to take care of my family. The place is a mess and the kids notice how mum is always so tired. ??
