Question I'd rather stay in bed

I've been on wellbutrin xl 300mg & klonipin for 1 1/2 yrs. I've weened myself off the wellbutrin(over 3wks-gradually cut down to 25mg,then stopped. have been completely off for 1wk). i'm still taking the klonipin(.5mg) occasionally, but i've been sooo drained & dog tired that i don't even take that anymore. it seems to only make my tiredness worse, were as before it had no effect on me whatsoever. i know my body is just adjusting(i hope!). I don't neccesarily feel sick or really depressed, i just have energy or care to do anything. I don't want to cook, clean(my house is a mess), going to work is a struggle, even calling my friends-people i would normally call daily,is a struggle for me now. To top it all off, i'm smoking like a freight train(ironically i originally started wellbutrin to help me quit smoking 1year ago). I keep telling myself just to kick it in gear & get up & go, but even giving myself a peptalk is just too much. I need some energy!!! I've decided to quit smoking...i know that's not helping-but i'm so afraid that is just going to top it all off, ya know what i mean? any advise, thoughts or just support would be greatly appreciated!

Hi!
sorry you are so tired! I've been that way lately too!
why are you weaning off the Wellbutrin?

Re: I'd rather stay in bed

I'd like to start having kids soon & I want to be off all meds when I do so. Also, I felt so drugged up all the time. I mean I could function & it really helped with my anxiety & depression, but I feel as if it's not me, you know? Like i'm not myself while on those drugs, just a drugged up version of me.
Sounds weird, I know. But I want to try & learn to live & love life without being dependant on a pill.
