    Has anyone ever come off sleep meds and after a few weeks reverted back to sleeping normally or atleast better then when on sleep meds. Im not sure whether to try this or not. Im not sure if my sleep problems will go away as the underlying problem (cfs) which is causing it will still be there. My doctor said the first few weeks would be hell and i would need to take time off work to do it and a chance that i might not be sleeping any better.

    Can anyone with cfs share any similar experiences with coming off sleep meds and how it all worked out for them?

    I think your right, just keep switching them up.

    i think when it comes to ad's switching them up and down might be a roller coaster but give it a try and see. Zoloft apparently has an effect on dopamine. Maybe switching meds every 3-4 months would be better for ad's.
