Thank you, I will consider the timing of my workouts, and yes I stopped the meds under the direction of my Dr.

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.
