Hi everyone I'm 16 and because I had a terrible disease I was out onto pristq that has helped me for a very long time. Until now I have started having terrible systoms such as not feeling myself and don't feel like talking. I have been on 100 mg of pristq and now the doctor has increased me to 150 mg. it has been a week on 150 mg and I'm feeling very tired and just feel like sleeping most the day. Is this normal I'm freaking out because I haven't been able to go to school much or do any of my school work 😭😭😭

I'm sorry for your plight.

I don't know where everybody is.

I've never been on Pristq, which I guess is an anti-depressant.

You said, "I had a terrible disease." Do you still have it?

I know being out of circulation, whether it's work or school, can be devastating in itself.

As a bipolar, I've been out of work a bunch, and one time when I had that, I went into depression within a week, probably, but I didn't go to a psychiatrist because I wasn't use to taking care of myself.

And so the depression got worse.

Were you pretty depressed before you started taking the medicine? Do you feel like it's helped you some?

At 16, you could probably be overwhelmed by medicine, but it's hopefully helping you, too.

Is there anyone there you can talk to about the medicine and the situation?

It's good that you reached out. Being positive that you can get through this will probably help. It's helped me.

Have to told your doctor or your parents how dark your thoughts are?

You were very courageous to reach out here for help. Can you talk the next step and talk to someone?

At the top of this forum there is a thread labeled RESOURCES. 4-6 pages of helpful phone numbers, links etc....

I hope you take time and look there. and call one of the numbers.

I take 150 of pristiq too. I also take a mood stabilizer. Talk to your doctor, let them know what is going on and how you are honestly feeling. Don't put it off.

I hope that you feel better soon Livv123. Welcome to the depression forum. There are a lot of people here that understand how you feel.

Hang in there...

Hugs, Karen...
