In reply to atypical depression - med advice..., posted by fiftylager on February 1, 2006, at 15:03:33

I have many of the same symptoms as you. My depression/fatigue/anxiety problems started to get bad enought to seek treatment when I was 18, I am now 27. For many years I was being treated for a diagnosis of depression and anxiety. However, it was only recently that a new doc identified my main problems a result of Post traumatic stress disorder.

I had alot of stress at home and school from the ages of 11-17 which resulted in lots of fatigue and anxiety problems to emerge at 18. I never discussed the problems I experienced when younger to the attention of my previous Docs. However, for some reason I did with this doc and she says that alot of the meds I had been trying were making things worse.

I too had ALOT of problems with oversleeping and fatigue but my new doc fixed those. I had permission from my work to arrive later than everyone else cuz of the problem. My Doc prescribed adderall for me and the plan was this. Whatever time I needed to awake, I would set my alarm 2 hours before that time. When the alarm went off, I would take 20 mg of adderall immediately then go back to sleep. After an hour I would awake on my own and then read or listen to music with a bright light on. After doing this for approximately 3 months, my sleep cycle dramatically improved and I now have so much more energy.

The only symptoms I am trying to treat now are my anxiety and thought patterns/dissocative states. Take Care !
