Thumbs down Mid-Morning Fatigue every day!!!

Does anyone else experience REALLY severe mid-morning fatigue?
I have a daily routine every day up at 6:15-6:30am... and at work by 8:00am. I always eat breakfast as soon as I get to work. Around 9am-11am every single day I get HORRIBLE fatigue.. I doze off and have to get coffee, or take a walk, sometimes it's so bad I take an early lunch to go sleep in my car for an hour.
Nothing helps at this time.. It's so embarassing I doze off in meetings, or feel like I'm going to collapse at my desk. I have had blood work done and so far nothing is showing abnormal.
After this fatigue period around 9-11am, I am completely fine. I am awake in the afternoon, at home in the evening and even don't feel too tired by bedtime. I sleep around 7 hours each night, and usually don't wake up at all in the night.

I don't understand what is causing this fatigue? I don't get it on weekends, as I sleep in usually until 10-11am.

Do you take any meds? Any over the counters? If so, you might want to read about the side effects...sleepiness, insomnia, and other related issues are common problems with many of these meds.

I had similar issues that went away when I stopped taking the offending medication.

Re: Mid-Morning Fatigue every day!!!

I suppose it could be from my anti-depressants?
I take 20mg of Celexa.. But I started taking it in the evening before bedtime to see if that helped. Nothing has helped.
I'm also on natural Thyroid for my hypothyroidism, but I have been pretty asymtomatic for years now.. It wasn't until the anti-depressants just before that I become very drained and tired. Don't all anti-depressants cause fatigue? I don't want to be tired anymore :*(

staceymck--I do this too and have for years. I don't take any med that may be the cause of it. I have Hashi's and I think that it is thyroid related IMO. Good luck to you. FLFLOWERGIRL

Are you eating a high carb breakfast (sugary cereal, white toast, etc)? If so, that could be the cause of the mid morning fatigue. High carbs cause the highs and lows in the blood sugar that make you feel yicky. renie51

Re: Mid-Morning Fatigue every day!!!

Hi Stacy, when I worked the same thing would happen with me. I would nod off and then the sounds around me were so loud and snap me awake for a minute then bam-out again. I also have hashimoto's thyroid as well type 2 diabetes and take antidepressants. I have tried every antidepressant out there and yes they can really make you listless and spacey and tired. I was so bad last year when I was taking Lexapro, my DR weaned me off and put me on 20mg Prozac at bedtime and 300MGs Wellbutrin XL in the morning, the Wellbutrin to add some energy to the mix. It really did help, but I am going through the sooooooooooooooo tireds again and keep nodding out at home. I think it's due to fall/winter on top of the already depression I have as well the thyroid and diabetes which all can affect our energy or lack of. I started taking large doses of Vitamin D which is the sunlight vitamin with calcium and high potency B's as well a B12 injection monthly. I am so glad I no longer work because I don't think I could do it! really. Then you add in the chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for which I take Gabapentin and that konks me out so only at bedtime for that. I am so low-energy and also seeking the secret, carbohydrates are a sleeper too, if I eat carbs and I am lying down I will be asleep in minutes. Stacy it could be your antidepressants too. With the Wellbutrin it used to help with my energy but not in the winter. Ask your Dr if there is something else you can take, have your B12 and iron checked-good luck.
