makes sense to me. when I was on Paxil it'd put me out pretty fast. It's when I first started to "know" something was wrong with my sleep, really bad sleep intertia, sleepwalking, waking dreams, false awakenings, HH, etc
Wasn't as bad on escitalopram, but I had to take ritalin during the day to stop me from being a zombie, and even then, I was still passing out at my desk around 2-3 every day.
Could this suggest a surplus of serotonin already? That wouldn't make sense with the existing depression, but then again, Paxil made me really euphoric (lawd knows I miss that feeling!).
I'd love to find a doc I could sit with for an hour and really get into symptoms and theories, but my GP interrupts me and talks over me. The other day it was "doc, i need official testing for celiac", "they'll likely come back negative and it won't change anything", "ok, but, it may assist with my N diagnosis, and right now, my fingers are peeling, having gut swelling, gas/diarrhea..and th...." "you aren't showing enough symptoms"
Doc...if you hadn't cut me off, you might have heard the rest!
