Exhaustion - depression and anxiety

Posted , 5 users are following.

I take 40mg of Citalopram once a day and 40mg of Propranolol 3 times a day and I am constantly absolutely exhausted. Some nights I sleep, and some nights I drift in and out of horrendous nightmares. It makes no difference, whether I wake up from 10 hours sleep or 2, I am always horribly tired, with no energy to do anything whatsoever. Is there anything I can take for this? Has anybody else had the same problem? I don't know what to do sad

    Do you need the pills ?

    If you cannot do without them also try singing and thinking happy thoughts just before you dose off and when you wake up.

    I wish you well and remember exhale red air and inhale blue calm air.

    I read that somwhere

    Good luck xx Win xx

    How long have u been on propranolo 40mg 3x a day??? I was also on that dose and it made me like that, but they were a god send to me. I am still on propranolol but now on the same dose x a day plus 100mg sertraline. I found that if I took them after 7pm my sleep was jumbled.

    Hello

    I use Propranolol totalling 160mg per 24 hour period. Would you be able to tell us if the constant tiredness started around the time that you began taking them. It would help to give you advice if you could provide a rough timeline eg; how long you have been taking the meds, and how long you have been suffering the symptoms you've described.

    Best wishes.

    The issue started around January/February last year, I suppose a similar time to me going on the medication. However, I did start off on a lower dose of propranolol, which was upped steadily, and I also had a period of time in the middle when I didnt take anything, and the exhaustion was just as bad, if not a little worse. I've done some reading on sleep apnoea and that seems to be more of a physical issue?
