Before i had my health issues I started exercising and that helped my fatigue a great deal.
I want to get back ro exercising it helps with anxiety too

Re: Tired all the time

I'm ADD-PI and tired most of the time. I do force myself to exercise daily and take a walk during my lunch break and that usually perks me up, other then that I just feel sleepy. Not even the stims help with that. Vyvanse actually makes me even more tired.

Re: Tired all the time

Do you have sleep apnea? Do you get a good nights sleep?

Re: Tired all the time

No sleep apnea here, yeah...I sleep 7-8 hr/night. Several years ago I was able to get by on 4-5hr but now I need to sleep more because I'm so freaking tired...maybe it's the depression.

Are you unable to sleep more than eight hours per night?

Re: Tired all the time

I have been sleeping betterv at night than I have been doing. I'm not as tired.It could have been the Cymbalta that has been making me tired all the time. I switched to 10 mg of Lexapro. I take 30 mg of BusSpar. One in the morning and one at bedtime. I Clairnex d24 in the moring along with the Buspar. At bedtime I take Singular along with the BusSpar at bedtime

Re: Tired all the time

I am just always tired... might have something to do with me quitting adderall.. like last night i fell asleep at 9, then woke up at 12, and stayed in bed until 330. pretty much my whole saturday. that's what I felt like doing though. I just wanted to lie there. but before i even knew i had innattentive add i was always tired. I could sleep until at least noon on any given day, but in high school and college, even if id been waking up early, I often had trouble falling asleep. (this has gotten better now that I have a work schedule) But, yes, I'm always lacking energy and these days i'm often lacking motivation and work ethic. every day i like to have coffee or soda. Especially when I know I have to do something mentally taxing in the next few hours.

You might have depression, or sleep apnea. Try to get 8 hpurs of restful sleep and stay away from the caffine at night

Re: Tired all the time

I still have the lack of energy, and not wanting to things that I should be doing. I can stay awake during the days now. However on the weekends I can sleep all day just to keep my brain quiet

Re: Tired all the time

I guess medication for anxiety and depression can make you feel tired

Re: Tired all the time

I am sick of feeling tired all the time. I don't know what else to try to stay mentally alert during the day?
