so long. at first things were going better. but now it seems things picked up where they left off with the lack of interest in any anything, all i want to do is stay in bed. my appetite increased, all i want to do is eat and i don't feel any better. im just tired of everything. i don't have any discipline like i used to have. i just want to be better but just don't know how to get there.

Hey girl, hate to hear that you feel this way. Did something trigger it? I asked because I also started to feel better and then I had this fight with my dad, I know it sounds high schoolish, but my dad still gets to me. Anyway, I'm kinda back to where I started. I can't find happiness in anything I do. My anxiety is bad and motivation zip. URGH! Anyway I guess I'm just trying to say you are not alone. Talk to your PDR and see what she recommends

Hello navygirl1. Sorry that you're having a rough time of it. Not certain how long you've been on the Effexor and Abilify. Might be time for a adjustment in your dose. As to the diet pills, it depends, but they usually are used in the very short term. Several weeks and its recommened that the diet pill be dropped. Blood pressure (an increase) is a danger when taking them in the long term. You might make an appoinment if possible with a your doctor, or therapist, explain to whats happening, how things are going for you at the moment. Regards, pledge
