... motivation no energy or enthusiasm& have become a hermit and have lost interest in everything
The newest antidepressant that I can think of is Viibryd. Don't know much about it. I take a relatively new antidepressant called Pristiq and it has definitely helped me with my motivation and energy. We added Wellbutrin to the Pristiq and I have all kinds of energy and enthusiasm. Has been a great combo for me. What have you tried?
Hi mad1. I echo Laurie in asking what have you tried. People, often don't like to hear about MAOI's --- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, because of the diet restrictions, how they work in regards to your blood pressure and so on. But, there are people who are on them, for years and do well on them. I was on one for some time but it just didn't work as well as was hoped. Having said that, they're usually prescribed when the so called reliables don't do thier job. Otherwise, its just as is for the majority, try this, and then, if this doesn't do the job, you go to another one, or combination of. Again, when all else or most has been tried, with limited success the MAOI comes into play. Wish I could say that this is the one, but as we know, its sometimes a find and seek type of thing. Well, hopefully you'll find a medication that will be the key to helping you.

Will the effectiveness of my antidepressants change if I take it at night instead of in the morning?
