    my doctor says the reason i can't sleep might be because i am depressed. it seems to me that most anti depressant meds are stimulants and can cause insomnia. the need for a sleep aid will still be there. anyone out there been cured of depression and can now sleep without sleeping pills or tranquilizers? he says i need a sleep study and mental evaluation so we can determine the reason i have trouble sleeping. i told him i can't sleep because i have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. he says fibro is just a collection of symptoms. i get the feeling he doesn't believe in fibro. i feel worse after going to see him and that anyone who suffers from this can't help but be depressed and anxious. i quess what i am asking is do you ever get off of ad's once you start them?
