Antidepressant medications are used to treat more than depression.

I just think it is odd to prescribe depression meds when one of the known side effects from it is "sleep problems".

I also agree with Heidi. I think this needs further investigation before he takes any anti depressants. If your DH was depressed I am sure it would affect his interests but that hasn't happened.
