A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.Dear friend,I believe that I can help.I carefully read and re-read your entry and find nothing to indicate that you are not a fully functioning person who follows a fairly busy schedule on time and does a lot to keep your family functioning while also studying for your own professional life. One of the indicates of mental wellness functionality (Global Assessment of Functioning). You would score in the very high normal range according to what you have told me.It is probably the medications that are making you tired. Lexapro produces fatigue in 6% of users, and Geodon causes lethargy. These two drugs are NOT recommended to be taken together and you should immediately talk to your physician about this risky comination. Drugs.com says:
Applies to: Geodon (ziprasidone), Lexapro (escitalopram)
Using ziprasidone together with escitalopram is not recommended. Combining these medications can increase the risk of an irregular heart rhythm that may be serious. Your doctor may be able to prescribe alternatives that do not interact. You should seek immediate medical attention if you develop sudden dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, shortness of breath, or fast or pounding heartbeats during treatment with either of these medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
This could be the cause of some of your feelings. You say you are taking other drugs as well. You need to alert your physician about something he should have already known, or you could see another physician.Otherwise, you seem to be very highly functional, above normal.I wish you great success and shall keep you in my prayers.Warm regards,Elliott, MAE, LPCC, NCC, CCMHC
