Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I can't sleep. I blame that on working nights for 15 years. I have been on days for 1 year. I never have much of an appetite. They put me on effexor thinking it was depression 1 year ago. I haven't noticed a difference. I use to be a people person. Now I will do anything not to leave the house. I have 5 kids and just cook 1 pot meals. Usually I send one of my kids to the store for me. I have no energy and no want to.
Why would I be depressed. My family is awesome. I don't see a counselor. Shouldnt the effexor be helping with depression?
