Ideas for Lack of Motivation??

Posted by JohnQ on June 26, 2002, at 19:00:57

Has anybody here had any success with combating SSRI (Paxil specifically)induced lack of motivation? I'm on 30mg of Paxil and while it works very well for my depression, it has totally destroyed my motivation. It has gotten so bad that my job may be in jeopardy. I'm currently on day one of my SAM-e trial, so maybe this post is pointless. But if it isn't, and the SAM-e doesn't work out, does anyone have any idea's on how to beat this? I could change the Paxil, but I'm thinking it works too well on my depression to not at least try some something to augment. I don't like stimulants, and probably wouldn't be able to get them anyways, so we can eliminate that class. What about Reboxetine? Anybody have success with that for lack of motivation? Does it increase anxiety? Any problems combining it with Paxil? I'm should be getting my Rebox. soon, so any advice would be great. Thanks.

P.S. I tried Adrafinil, which made my depression and anxiety much worse, if that helps.
