I wake up in morning with depression/ very low mood
Did you start it to stop a narcotic pain reliever? I'm not sure if that's it's only use, but that's why I take it and I haven't had any problems with depression or heard of anyone with depression caused by it. BUT, anything is possible because everyone metabolizes medications differently. I think in the beginning (I started 1-27-16) I may have been a little depressed but mostly it was high anxiety. Those were both because I was no longer able to take my Norco anymore. That was my pain relief and my "anti-depressant" for 15 years. Even tho stopping was my own choice it was still a scary process to come to terms with. The fact that I would never have it again was depressing all by itself for me. My doctor added Buspar to my regimen and I have been a whole new person. Maybe you need something for anxiety (which can cause depression) or an anti-depressant to take along with it? I would talk to you doctor on your next visit about how you're feeling before it gets too bad. In the mean time, getting out and being with friends or family helps a lot. I personally found comfort in binge watching my favorite shows on Netflix to get thru the hardest part. Whatever it is that makes you happy, do that as much as you can. I hope this helps. Good luck, and stay connected to this group. Talking to people going through what you are going through is a big help, and this group has a lot of great people who are very supportive.
