I'm not sure if the celexa would have caused long term insomnia because during the side up I was give trazodone and just always took both.... There were times where I would have the trazodone and was ok but I never tried to get off the trazodone cause the dr said it would help my anxiety too
Very frustrating indeed.... Setbacks are awful.... I was starting to do better and sleep better and it just hits you out of nowhere

I personally think once you find the dose that's best for you and you're getting the full benefit of the zoloft you will sleep fine. I think you said you were sleeping when you were taking zoloft earlier. It seems like your high anxiety is the biggest culprit right now.

Yeah I had a hard time I'm the beginning and then it leveled off and my first trimester all I did was sleep and I was not on any meds I don't want this to be a permanent issue :(

I think I slept better.... I made it a point to not look at the clock so I wouldn't obsess over it
I took the trazodone first and when that didn't knock me
Out after a while I took the ambien
So I think I did much better I'm still pretty tired and groggy but I think not looking at the clock helped

Glad to hear it.  Oh ya watching the clock is murder. I think you're going to be okay. Insomnia is pretty typical in the early stages of zoloft.

Yes a little better and I went back down to 25 mg of trazedone with the ambien so that was good
I may try just the trazodone tonight with half an ambien and see how I do
The issue is that I feel so groggy during the day and get irritable and feel like I can't enjoy things
I don't want to become an emtionless zombie on zoloft so I'm hoping the feeling passes
I've been on 62.5 mg for 5 days now and am scared to go up to 75 mg next week
I start feeling less foggy at night of course when it's time to go to bed..... I want to be back to my normal self and fear it's gone forever

Hows it going Dreilly? Getting anymore sleep? My anxiety feels like it's creeping back in, it's driving me mental! I just worry zoloft isn't working, but then I'll have a good day and think it must be doing something. The bad days just feel like they undo 3 good days.

It's going okay.... Just feeling a little down I'm supposed to increase my dose to 75 mg from 62.5 mg tomorrow
It's like I feel like I'm doing better but on the verge of regressing.... It's weird.... Not sure if the pregnancy is making it more difficult but I would like to think that the hormones are just out of control
Sleep is touch and go... Some nights are better than others but I wake in the middle of the night though I'm on a pregnancy board where many women are going through the same thing
How are you?
