 I think I have posted something like this before: Sorry about that. lol

Well anyway, I take prozac I have anxiety and sometimes depression. If you take prozac; do you like/love/hate it??

I have taken it for a while, it seems to make me tired. Ex: I can sleep ALL the time (literally). Does this happen to you?? Im not sure if it's the drug I take OR that I work super ealy- but I still shouldn't be wanting to sleep all the time like this.

If you take something else, does this happen to you? Do you like it?

I take Xanax for anixity. Works much better than Prozac in my opinion. Prozac also made me extremely tired. Xanax can make you a bit tired, but I still function fine on it. I don't feel like sleeping all day as I did when I tried Prozac. 

I'm also on Ambilify daily. I take the ambilify in the AM and the xanax when needed. 

Talk to your doctor to find a better combination. You should be tired all the time.

Do you exercise regularly? That will help with the sleepiness and anxiety and depression symptoms.

 Yes I exercise regularly. I am obsessed with working out actually. The prozac helps with the anxiety and depression for the most part.

DH takes med for depression and anxiety. His job keeps his out and about during the day as soon as his head hits the pillow he is out. He wasn't like that before he started taking them. They do help though.
