hi trucker,

> thanks folks! i now know why i am tired all the time. occationally i have an energenic day but they are rare. i was on 10 mg of lex for 2 wks. now i have been bumped up to 20 mg of lex. the anxiety is better managed, the depression too. just don't get a lot done in a days time. ya give ya take. at least i am closer to my normal self..... if i ever was normal!!! thanks ya'll for the info... how long does this tiredness usually last???i have been on the 20mg now for a week or so.
> trucker!

i have been trying something for my afternoon fatigue that Wayne and Bill L suggested a while back:
Dark Chocolate (NOT milk chocolate, says brother Bill and so say i)

i have been eating an ounce between 2 and 4 in the afternoon ... .. ... if i was getting sleepy-tired i'd maybe eat 2 ounces ... .. ... however, i have found that if i eat that much at 4, it interferred with my appetite for dinner ... so lately i'm doing a half ounce after lunch, like dessert ..?

and i have been losing some weight ... some of the 5 lbs i gained in april maybe ... ... but i think that i'm getting my bioflavinoids from the chocolate to help satisfy my hunger better and i am eating less.

take good care of yourself!
~ jim
