Since having anxiety back I started to wake up about 5/6am but had around 6hrs sleep which is ok but now if I fall off to sleep I tend to wake up around 3-4am and cannot get back to sleep. I don't eat heavy meals before bed or drink any coffee or anything like that and end up laying in bed with my eyes closed and my mind is active like it would be when you first wake up.
I do meditation to get me off to sleep but staying a sleep is becoming a problem!

It's weird because in the last 4 weeks I have been able to sleep, it's only now I am having problems so not 100% sure if it is the Sertraline."Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter."

Sorry to hear things are tough for you at the minute regarding sleeping.
Have you tried taking a look at the sleeping resource on TheSite?
It has some good links and related articles for futher reading on tips and advice.
If you think it could be a side effect of your medication, it might be worthwhile speaking to your doctor.
Hope things get easier soon though, there's nothing worse than a bad nights sleep.

I do feel tired in the day but at the moment it's manageable. Hows your days with lack of sleep?"Don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter."

Are you going to bed / waking up at the same time? Going to bed only when tired?

My days aren't too bad Makoto. It's just a matter of balancing my workload with my university commitments. Time management and all that. I'm getting better at it though...
