I saw that eplivanserin received a complete response letter not long ago. I have seen a few posters at APA and APSS through the years. Given the drug's effect on sleep maintenance, potential for non-controlled status, and potential impact on SWS what are your thoughts on the 5HT compounds such as eplivanserin and the FDA's response?
Any comments are welcomed.

But, I'm not. Sigh...

I began with 125 mg; managed to get it down to 25mg; then back up; then back down; then... I'm sure you've been there also. When our new grandson was born he would cry ALL DAY EVERY DAY. He would take naps, and sleep at night. But when he was awake he cried. This went on for 3 months and several doctors. A lady… Continue
