Middle of the night awakenings why?
Hi - I never used to have sleep problems until a few months ago, around the time my daughter got sick and it added stress to my life because I tend to be a hypochondriac.  In order to deal with the anxiety I was prescribed a high dose SSRI and benzo.  Now my anxiety is gone, but I still wake up in the middle of the night, every night.  I've had a sleep study done for apnea and don't have that or restless leg.  What else could it be?  Side effect of the meds, depleted adrenals, other?  Please help!

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Insomnia is a side effect of SSRI medications. Discuss your symptoms with your consulting doctor he may change the dose or the medications.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
