I need something to motivate upon awakening. When I get up, I do not have the feeling of just going and ding.
It really depends on several factors. How long have you been taking it? It takes several weeks to begin to notice any effects. What time of day do you take it? If you take it in the morning, then you may want to check with your doctor about taking it before bedtime. What other medications are you taking? Could they have fatigue as a side effect? I have been on Prozac (80mg/day) for several years. I am taking several other antidepressant/anti-anxiety medications, as well. It has taken a while to get the dosages and timing correct. I highly recommend seeing a psychiatrist for these types of medications, rather than a regular MD.
