> Are there any meds that help with task initiation? I struggle to get going on tasks. I tend to feel extremely unmotivated to do anything, and I can spend hours doing pretty much nothing but lying on the couch and daydreaming and watching YouTube videos.

> Or am I just lazy?

With mild to moderate depression, one feels frustratingly lazy. This often includes fatigue and difficulty initiating activities. Sometimes, irritability occurs as well.

For me, I have received the maximal benefits from venlafaxine 300 mg/day and lamotrigine 300 mg/day. Is it possible for you to increase the dosages of both drugs?

Lamotrigine usually doesn't work for depression (bipolar) unless the dosage is 200 mg/day or higher.
