Because I was having so many problems sleeping I told my doctor about it in one of my regular visits to her. At the moment im on Lovan as my main anti depressant, but this time she also gave me a sample of Avanza, which compliments my Lovan, because it acts on differant chemical pathways in the brain. The thing about Avanza is the sedative effect. This stuff will knock you out, and id recommend to anyone who is having trouble sleeping to at least try it. Id like to emphasis that depending on what other drugs you are taking, Avanza can be used alongside them, but you MUST ask your doctor first. This stuff is not over the counter, and you need authorization to get it. If you need to sleep though, it works, and works well. Now I think my sleep is back to something approaching normal for the first time in weeks.
