Is anyone else having really bad insomnia? Last nite I didnt sleep for even a minute and over the past couple weeks most nites I only get 2 or 3 hours unless I take ambien. My practice says its okay to take occassionally but I am at the point where I need more than occassionally. I am considering trying prozac - lexapro once helped with a similarly bad bout of insomnia years back. The doctors and midwives in my practicw are mixed on it, one gave me a script for prozac saying its the safest of the SSRI's, but the bottle came covered with warnings about 3rd trimester use and I am afraid to start it, and would prefer not to go the daily drug route pregnant or not. I have tried chamomile tea, valerian capsules, increased omega 3's, calcuim, magnesuim and b-6, unisom, benadryl, and several self-hypnosis sleep CD's. None help at all. Has anyone found anything that has worked or any thoughts on ambien v. prozac? If I didnt have to work I would try to tough it out but I still have a month to go and am a total zombie.
