I have been on anti-depressants for nearly 20 years and find fluoxetine suits me best. I have recently had my dose increased to 40mg a day and have also been prescribed quetiapine 25mg at night to assist with sleep. I've been taking the both these meds for 6 months now but find I'm so tired during the day particularly in the afternoons. I'm trying to work 30 hours a week and am on sickness absence procedure due to alot of absence since taking these meds. I'm considering reducing my hours but this would leave me reliant on benefits which causes me more anxiety. I also find it very difficult to concentrate. Is anyone else taking both these meds and if so how do you feel? Do you find it's the fluoxetine, quetiapine or both that makes you feel more drowsy? Many thanks
