your evening routine is part of the problem. you exercise, then eat, then expect your body to sleep. eating and exercise are both activities that wake a body up. you need about 5 hours, times vary for different people but that's the average, for your body to relax from all the activity. don't know how the paxil fits in, but i do hope you stopped it under doctors' advice.
Thanks for looking and asking. 1. I workout in the late evening from around 7 PM. 2. I try to push myself in every workout. 3. I have recently quit taking the anti depressant Paxil and think they may be the problem. My thought process on this is that I could get back on the med, but what if this is just a phase of withdrawal. 4. Lots of stress lately. 5. Yes I eat after working out. Does that make a difference?

Are you under any unusual stress ? Stress can cause sleeping problems. Can exercise cause sleeping problems ? Yes. How late are your workouts ? How intense are your workouts ? When do you usually turn in ? When are you eating ? Are you eating after your workout and then going to sleep ? The problem may be a result of eating too late combined with an evening workout.
If you can tell us more, we can be more helpful.

probably need a little more info to try to answer that one- like what time do you work out and how intense, etc.
