Re: Is anyone taking anti depressants and have they helped?

Hi. I seem to be in a similar situation to you. I am extremely fatigued and weak with other symptoms. Most of the doctors I have seen have said I have depression and prescribe antidepressants and sedatives. I have taken them because I am desparate to feel better but I don't find them helpful- I have only been on SSRI's though, not sure about tricyclic.

On a related note, I really identify with what you say. I'm really tired of the doctors focussing on depression. Yes, I have had depression and probably still do but this is different. Of course I am down, I am so tired and dizzy I can't even do the dishes!

I hope that you get it sorted, don't be afraid to ask for second opinions.
