Ive suffered with depression for many years. I was on sertraline previously but changed to prozac and it was making me tired, then the side effects were horrible terrible anxiety needing the loo all the time etc so i came off it. A few months later the depression was no better i got insomnia so bad i went about 2 weeks without sleeping al all and developed a drink problem have have been off work since July. Ive successfully completed an alcohol detox last month, started feeling much better in myself although my body still recovering, depression had lifted a bit, i want to do stuff now seem a bit more focused etc. All my fsmily kept saying to me was get the alcohol sorted and then go to docs about depression as oviously the two dont mix. So went the other day put back on sertraline, took first one Friday night, didnt sleep at all groggy next day so decided to switch to a morning, so left saturday and took sunday morning and this morning. Im really struggling to sleep on a night, im tired but its like my mind wont shut down it strangley also makes me want to pee more so im up and down going to the loo and im scraping by on 4-5 hours sleep a night it it takes a while before i pull myself round on a morning. After my detox i was sleeping quite well! I just cannot cope with insomnia. Im on half pay now i need to get back to work soon and havent got the time or money to mess around changing meds. Can any one give me some advice is this likely to pass? How long should i give it? as other than that after detox i was doing so much better. Please help! Thank you
