I'm taking Paxil and I love how it's helping me but for one thing, I can't sleep at night!!!! And I'm a mom of 2 kiddies so I need my sleep.

I take my pill at 630pm after supper. Should I take it at a different time???

Please help

Possibly in the morning but definitely talk to your doc first.

 My doctor told me to try switching to mornings because when I was on zoloft I never slept through the night, I had crazy dreams, and I'd wake up soaked in sweat.

Trazodone worked for my sleeping problems before I got pregnant but now that i'm on nothing I can't sleep at night either.

 Whenever I was on an antidepressant that made it hard for me to sleep, my dr. prescribed sleeping pills for me and I took half the doseage so I wouldn't be so wiped out the next day. I'd definitely give your dr. a call and see what he thinks about switching the time of day to take it or if you'd need something to take to help you sleep.
