i'm scratching my head at the moment, wondering how to get better sleep, i'm waking up and finding it difficult to find the off switch. i'm trying to do some reading and see if the fluoxetine might be keeping me awake, as it releases serotonin . But the answer does not seem so simple, low serotonin can also cause insomnia .... so no simple answer there.
Maybe i'm just looking for an excuse to cut down on the meds, i made the mistake in the spring of taking a little less fluoxetine as i was feeling better, that turned out to be a mistake... and i ended up with a second med, (Quetiapine) which i think is more effective than the prozac,
Part of me agrees with the g.p. that meds are for the long term, and would fight tooth and nail to keep them, but another part of me says i'm ok at the moment, i shouldn't need that load of toxic chemicals.
I had been thinking about taking a little less serotonin, it seemed a simple idea, the stuff keeps your brain cells buzzing and active, but that same buzz might be helping keep the depression at bay, and winter is coming which brings its lows anyway.
wishing you all a good nights sleep, guess i'm just thinking aloud,
