I have major fatigue problems.. idon't know whether its part of my depression or a side effect of my medication, effexor xr.  How do u battle your fatigue? is there any hope for relief..because i can't do anything! Sittting in a chair is exhausting for my body :(

Unfortunately fatigue could be caused by either! It could be the meds or it could be the depression. The way I combatted it was exercise. I know it sounds strange, but I found that if I exercised then I wasnt as lathargic and tired. Maybe its because it gets the blood pumping, or maybe because I am a bit weird! lol

I have fatigue too and find that almost every afternoon I take a nap.  Is it the meds or not...........I don't know but my body tells to to take a nap and I always fall asleep.

I do exercise and I do go out and on vacations where I find I get tired easy but I just keep going.

Some people with depression stay in bed all day to hide from the world but I have never had that problem.

If you feel the fatigue is interferring with your life, talk with your physician, it could be you may need a med change?  Just my own prsonal opinion.

Take care of you.

Hi! I just joined. I have Majior Depression. I get like that all the time. My problem is what I am depressed about, and how severe it is. If it is something that I feel I can do something about it, I take a walk, and juice my body up. But, there are some times when I feel as though getting out of bed is a chore, so I stay in bed for days. Please talk to your doctor, as I am not a professional in any way,so you need to dicuss what you can do to make you ok.

Take Care,
