My weirdo body reacts really unusual to most to things, but I am beyond desparate at 56 yrs of age. I just increased the Prozac dose to 20mg, 3 days now, too soon to tell if it might help. However, I know there are so many awesome folks out there that might be willing to give me some feedback? I honestly do not want medication, but things are so bad, I've been sinking for years now and I'm afraid I'm close to not making it anymore, to say I am barely existing would be an overstatement. I don't feel well at all, and sort of think there is a medical issue being missed, but? I'd give anything to be free of pain med to see if it's the cause but can't afford to feel even worse at work especially the pain? Sidebar question: I can barely stay awake or function, even if a million dollars was offered it wouldn't perk me up... Can Depression cause this severity of sleepiness? God Bless each of you and thank you for any input you might have...
