since 6 years I am on medicine. I have no sleeping problem. I am sleeping minimum 7-8 hours daily regular. I can imagine my goal but I have no motivation for that. I can't do new things like before pleasure activities. I am graphic designer. Now I want to add web designing in my career. But I can't concentrate on my new web designing career. I can't do small goal enough like playing game, not doing creative things in my designing. I am doing job as a graphic designer. What to do now ?
What are your goals? It's a good idea to explore some things, hobbies, crafts, etc. as short-term goals to get motivated. May work better than any drug out there>
How long were you on your meds? It doesn't really sound like you're 100% depression free. How are you sleeping? There can be a few different factors for lack of motivation. Goals on the other hand, could be self doubt. If you are depression free, that is one heck of an accomplishment, & you reached a goal by doing that!! Set small goals, you just made a huge goal. Do you like walking or anything? Just helps clear your head & ups your mood. Hope this helps a bit. Take care..
Hi, sagi! It does sound as if you still have some symptoms of depression, so it's good you're still taking your desvenlafaxine. You might talk to your doctor about medications that might give you a little more energy and motivation.
I take Nuvigil which is a non-narcotic stimulant and Aricept which helps improve cognitive function, focus, and concentration. They help immensely with my job performance and detailed artwork.
Once you get going, you'll often find you get more motivated on your own.
Best wishes, WCV
Desvenlafaxine is an snri so that should add energy. Not sure about Clomipramine. Maybe pristiq would be enough alone.
