    Hi Lesley,

    I felt exactly the same when I started on mirtazipine, but it did pass after a few weeks.

    I have started to set myself "tasks" first thing in a morning, which makes me get dressed and out of the house, and this has helped.

    Hope it works out the same for you x

    When I was in psychiatric hospital I was told take just one small step a day and reward nyourself when you achieve your goal.  Don't push yourself.  Be kind to yourself.  Depression takes away our motivation, so don't fret about it.  It is usual for this to happen when you are depressed.

    Do things you like to do, if you can manage it.  I think you will find we all experience what you are going through now, so you are not alone. 

    Hopefully with the right anti depressant you will be able to get your motivation back. 

    Take care and please try not to worry
