I take an antidepressant at night which is a bit sedating. I used to have difficulty in the morning being tired. Then doctor added Adderall in the morning to help wake me up. That worked. (I also discovered it also helped as an antidepressant.) I had to stop the Adderall 5 years later because my hair and teeth started falling out. (Periodontist saved my teeth.) Doctor switched me to Nuvigil in the morning to wake me up. That worked even better. I still take the sedating antidepressant because it is the only one that works for me. Took a long time to find a steady regime of meds that work well for me.
I'm confused. You say you were on one med and it made you sleepy, but did it work otherwise? Did you stop it abruptly or taper off slowly before starting these other meds? If the Prozac was working, you probably could have gotten used to it over time. It's not one of the most sedating, in fact in general it's a bit stimulating, but we often get used to this stuff and work through it. The reason I'm asking is, you're now saying you were put on 4 drugs at the same time? Why? If one drug will do, why do 4? That just compounds side effects. The first drug you're taking is a newer drug in the same group as the Prozac, but probably more likely to make you sleepy until you get used to it. So again, a big question is, how well does something work? And the only way to tell if a drug works is to take one at a time, otherwise how do you know which drug is doing what? If a drug works but just not well enough, then you might add another to augment it. You also suggest your doc told you to stop a drug abruptly instead of tapering off of it. Look, I'm just reading what you wrote, but without you explaining it more from what you're saying so far, you might have bumped into a really really bad psychiatrist. Can you explain more how you got to this point so it might make more sense?
