I was on cymbalta and other medication problem is medications only work at moments of severe depression and or anxiety I personally have made it my goal to come off my anxiety medication as I felt like you tired exhausted and not motivated. You need to talk to youreceive doctor about changing your medication but also you need to look at yiu LIFE work, are you happy? Family problems? Financial problems? Feeling stuck? Diet? Past negative experiences continuously running through mind? You have to dig to the routes no matter what the challenge you have to follow unfamiliar paths listen to advise you normally ignore go against your natural instinct your mind is holding you back you need to push past negative emotions one minute at a time until you realise that you can be happy work harder on tourself no one can do it for you. ....but I can certainly encourage you on your journey DON'T IGNORE YOUR LIFE THINK OF DEPRESSION AS A PLAGUE IN YOUR BODY AND MIND you can fight this and win ☺

Several years ago my psychiatrist put me on Wellbutrin and Celexa. I had NO energy at all and was depressed. Two or three weeks later I started feeling great, and it lasted for years. I had never had such a long stretch of feeling good. Wellbutrin is known for giving you energy, so it might be worth a try. Everybody is different, though. What works for one person might not work for another. But keep trying, you’ll find the one that works.

That medication may not be for you? Why don’t you think it’s the right medication. Medication for depression should only take the edge off of it. Enough to breath and learn how to deal emotions and thoughts on your own. Therapists can help with that. If the side effects of the medication are lasting more then a week then you may want to go back and see if you can try something else.

There are tons and tons of other medications! Finding the right one is a pain and it can take a long time, but it’s worth it because it helps so much when you find it! Definitely talk to your doctor!
