I am considering switching from Effexor because of problems with motivation. I'm wondering if it helps with my depression (dysthymia) and anxiety (not panic) by making me just not care as much. I feel better, but I'm not getting anything done! I still have some anxiety about certain things. For me it seems to be a fine line--too much anxiety and I'm immobilized, not enough and I'm not motivated. Aaugh! Maybe I'm just lazy.
I tried Paxil, which worked except not enough on the anxiety, and I had some problems with concentration. Zoloft did NOT agree with me. Paxil and Effexor both make me sleep a lot. (That does care of the insomnia, though!)
Any ideas, comments?
