Depression Join this Group

Always tired and unmotivated.

By November 28, 2012 - 2:58pm

I am also very tired. I sleep all night and have no energy and want to nap during the day and feeling very withdrawn I have been suffering from chemical depression (which is imbalance of chemicals in the brain) for many years now, have been taking Zoloft which had helped in the past but the last year or 2 I feel it isn't working. I have increased the doses to 150gm, and thinking of increasing it too 200. Maybe my tiredness has nothing to do with my depression???? Have had blood tests and they always come back normal.

Hello. I have been taking zoloft for a few months now and they seem to help. I use to take them at bedtime but I hated the drowsy feeling in the morning. Now I take them earlier in the day, but I still have that drowsy feeling in the morning and hate to get up. My doctor has told me that maybe I'm not so much depressed, but tired. However, being depressed is what keeps me from sleeping well. I worry all night.
