I think benzos and lunesta (eszopiclone) are making depression worse. I am on citalopram which is starting to help. Any natural sleep aids I can take with the citalop instead of benzos? No trazordone or serequel.

I think benzos and lunesta (eszopiclone) are making depression worse. I am on citalopram which is starting to help. Any natural sleep aids I can take with the citalop instead of benzos? No trazordone or serequel.
