    hi, sorry to hear this i am on 100 mg of setraline and yes find everything a struggle. its helping so much with my depression but then seems to back fire as you feel so tired. i have to work all day non stop get everything done and then when all jobs and chores down i can then stop and do go to bed very early. gut as i say once i am up and push mysellf i can carry on but it is hard.

    maybe your doctor can lower your dosage and that might help. all the best x

    Hi Lolly . . . I'm not on that particular antidepressant but I am on another of the same class, which class are called SSRI's and I have a certain amount of fatigue from it, which I welcome however because this class of antidepressant is very soothing for a certain kind of person like myself.

    I do not need the other class which is called SNRI's which would cause agitation in me, which I already have plenty of !

    The depression and anxiety combination is most often treated with SSRI's and I personally find them very helpful in calming me down.

    I am the type who suffers from excess nervous energy and thus the anxiety. Perhaps you are this type yourself, in which case you've been correctly prescribed.

    Hi Guys,

    Has anyone seen this new treatment that is still in the testing phase? It seems very drastic but if you guys are going through anything like my son is going through: it just maybe worth reading the article
