HI..I am being treated for depression, I'm taking Paxil and it has helped very much. I take it at night for it does make me sleepy and I sleep much better. When I"m off of it, I get into a "black" hole that I feel like I can't crawl out of. I go into major mood swings and lash out at people when not taking my med. I hope that you get better soon. As for the sleep apnea, my 9 yr old son has it, and its due to a blockage in his airway. He will be going for a sleep study in Feb. using the CPAP. Right now he's just on breathing treatments and inhaler. He does well with it. Feel free to write if you like.
