It starts from first drop

My Insomnia means not at all full night wakeup. My Isomnia is late night sleep.

If I go to bed around 10 pm I doesn't fall in sleep till 12pm(Racing thoughts in night)

My current dosage is 1.15mg

The insomnia started when you first reduced escilatopram? When was that?

 

Could you sleep when you were taking 5mg escilatopram Jan 2019-Jun 2019?

 

What time of day do you take escilatopram?

@Altostrata No Alto my main side effects of Escitalopram are RLS and Insomnia.

 When I was in 2.5 mg I felt little window one day only(RLS and leg pain reduced at the time )

I Can sleep till now But I can't get early bed(from 5mg). If I sleeps at late night(1 a.m)  I will get wave in morning and I will wake up late in morning around 10 o clock.

Everytime wakes up in morning I talks with me like today onwards I'm going to bed earlier likewise I goes to bed 10.30p.m until 12o clock or 1o clock doesn't get sleep

If I were you, I'd take the escilatopram earlier, by moving it an hour earlier each day until you're taking it in the morning. It may be preventing you from falling asleep earlier than 1 a.m.

 

Please keep regular sleep-wake hours. Let us know how you're doing.
