So i've suffered from depression for years now. I've been on different meds and had councelling several times over the years. I'm currently on 60mg fluoxetine, 25mg amiltripline, propranolol and my dr has just put me bck on clonazepam because i'm not sleeping well and feel like crap all the time. I've recently had blood tests and everything is normal and healthy but i constantly feel tired and awful. I get about 8-9 hours of sleep every night but every day is a struggle. My doctor has said just leave it a bit longer and see if i improve but i've been feeling like this for almost a year now. previously i've been unable to do things because of the depression; i've been suicidal for months on end and physically unable to get out of bed some days, but this isn't like that. Mostly now i just feel too tired to do things and i feel like i'm using the depression as an excuse. I'm wondering if the way i'm feeling is a side effect of the medication i'm taking and whether i'd be better coming off it instead. Has anyone else felt physically drained on fluoxetine or felt better after coming off of it? tia, roxi
