I am chronically fatigued, in pain, depressed and feel as if

Customer Question

I am chronically fatigued, in pain, depressed and feel as if I have reached the end of the stress syndrome. I am on lyrica, oxycontin, percocet, klonopin, metformin, nexium and effexor. All i do is sleep, eat and vegatate on the couch. I am a nurse and manage to get through 37 1/2 hrs a week on a busy med-surg unit. Drs. keep giving me more meds but i feel as if i'm going to just not wake up one day. I am not suicidal.

How long have you been on these medications?

Are you seeing a psychiatrist or pain management specialist?
