I take Lexapro as an antidepressant and Lamictal as a mood stabilizer and I am just so lethargic.  I don't know if I need a different antidepressant or this is just the Lamictal causing me to lack energy.  I am now able to work, shop for groceries, cook, and do laundry but the rest of the time I just want to sleep.  I also take Zyprexa as needed for anxiety but find I am needing it less and less; when I do take Zyprexa I am very very sleepy.

I've been on all three of those meds...not at the same time though. Zyprexa made me sleep like crazy. I'm on lamictal now and I don't think it's really affecting my sleep pattern. As for the lexapro most ADs used to make me sleepy so maybe it's that? obviously all meds act differently with different people so it's really anyone's guess.

Now possibly even celiacs disease!Lots of tests coming up so hopefully I'll know more soon. Too many meds to list!
