Long time lurked just registered.
I've been fighting this dreaded affliction for 17 years now and I finally feel I'm close to an answer, but at cost. So I felt a need to join and request experience.
After every med under the sun I've finally found effexor and with it more relief than I can remember. Period.
Social anxiety appropriate.
Depression kicked in the butt.
Intrusive thoughts no longer intruding so much.
HOWEVER I cannot seem to muster the energy to do anything. In fact I'm in bed much of the time with a typical day being waking up from a good night sleep, taking meds, trying to keep eyes open, heading back to bed and sleep.
I'm currently in a private inpatients under the care of a professor who is quite set in his ways but the day I leave draws near. I am more than happy with that because my mental health genuinely seems on the up but I can't live and/or be productive in any possible way living like this.
So, the experience I seek is from those who believe they might have an idea about what I can do here?
Has anyone had this type of experience and overcome it?
Does anyone believe there is a med that I could use as an adjunct concentrating on this symptom?
For the record coffee is useless.
Thanks before the fact to anyone's comments which would be extremely valuable to me.
Oh, and amphetamines are not an option as they make me psychotic.
