    Default Exhaustion

    I've got awful depression. I take Moclobemide (300mg b.d.) plus Lamotrigine for epilepsy (200mg b.d.)

    I get to about 11am and can't stay awake. I fall asleep sitting up and I'm so tired that I struggle with the energy to remain standing.

    Im a SAHM and luckily my 2yo still naps around that time but I don't want to need a nap.

    Does your depression make you exhausted? Do you need to nap?

    (This is a bit of a vent as well, thanks for reading )

    Yes my depression in the past has made me very tired, shattered in fact. I usually find that's when I am awake worrying at night.
    Not so tired I can't function though. Could it be the meds or combination of meds?
    Hugs. Hope you feel rested soon.

    When im in my low points I am constantly fatigued. Even if I had a good sleep at night, by mid morning I am shattered and can barely stay awake. A lot of the time I feel like I am in a haze.
