    What medications can I take to help me sleep?

    I'm currently on endep 35mg, when I went to see a new doctor to get a script for endep 10mg she warned me about serotonin disease or overdose. She mentioned the symptoms and I told her I have been waking up in a cold sweat every morning, I have restless legs and leg muscle aches.

    I am also taking cymbalta (which is an anti depressant, it's working wonders with my depression so I don't wish to change it). I am also taking duriomine which is a weight loss medication. I have just started yaz flex which is an oral contraception.

    I do have temaze at home but I am concerned as it is addictive.

    I am just after some advise of some other medications that I could take to help me sleep.

    Mdications to help you sleep should be seen only as a very short term solution. It is much better to actually improve your sleep without the aid of medications. This can be done by asking your GP for a referral to a sleep psychologist.
