I haven't been sleeping good even when I take my sleeping medication and these past 3 days. I have been feeling really depressed and haven't felt like doing much. My therapist has been sick for at least a couple of months so I haven't been able to talk to her. My psychiatrist isn't given me anti-depressing he is giving me something like an enery booster but I don't know if it is better to just go on anti depressings now or not.

Your med for eneergy might not be strong enough. Let your doctor know. I take vyvanse. 60mg. It is working so far.

Hope you feel better soon.

Talk this over with your counselor, like gettingby/Karen said, you might need to ask about
a medication boost or another medicines altogether...don't give up hope yet...there is something out there
that will help you...many well wishes and keep us posted as we do care....

I have a history of 30 years depression and my Pdoc finally let me try Ritalin as my energy was so low and I could not get motivated.  So far it is working well for me at a very low dose.
Good luck.

I am so happy that the ritalin is helping you. I know how long you have struggled. I hope it continues to work good for you. You may need an increase in the future when it gets really well into your system. But kudos for you my friend!!!

Many hugs, Karen
