Our expert says:
Maybe some more specific counsellign would be a good idea now, preferably of the CBT format, to deal with the depression / grief and to plan realistically to deal with whatever other problems are troubling you. Benylin could have added to your depression, whereas proper treatment of depression usually improves sleep.
CBT has been found to be usually at least as effective as antidepressants, and with lasting benefits, so its worth pursuing ( and its a talking therapy ) --- but adding Ads to it is often a good idea, too --- and if the shrink is careful in selecting a suitable one for you, the side-effects dotn't need to be very troublesome ( and remember with almost any drug, the side-effects are worst for the first couple of weeks, as your body gets used to their presence ).
And try calling the anxiety-depression support group for support, even Lifeline until you see your own shrink
