I am 22 (female) and have just moved away from home to study a PhD which is super exciting. Dispite how well things go for me, I have been suffering with depression for the last 3 years or so and have been taken fluoxetine for the last 6 months or so to keep it in check. Its working and I feel much better in terms of my mood. However, I do find I have an empty mind a lot of the time, the back of my head feels heavy and I keep stuggling not to fall asleep at work. Its not sudden sleep...I feel myself going but I am almost powerless to stop it and I just end up with blurry vision and muscle spasms. Not very helpful as I have so much studing to do! So I am wondering if this is a side effect, something else, or (the most likely option) just me being really lazy. Any help is appreciated ... thanks x
