Fluoxetine - Is Tiredness/lack Of Motivation A Side Effect?

I have suffered with depression for some time. I used to take Citalopram but my Doctor recently changed my prescription to Fluoxetine. I had some very weird side effects at first - very strange thoughts - almost like hallucinations and felt quite 'spaced out'. However, after reading the leaflet, I saw that this can happen and will generally disappear with continued use. So I persevered.

I have been taking it now for about 8 weeks. I did stop for about a week when I was away on holiday. I hurt my back and had to take anti-inflammatory medicine. I was worried about the risk of stomach bleed that this can cause when interacting with fluoxetine so I stopped taking it. This was about 5 weeks ago. I became extremely low with thoughts of harming myself. I resumed the fluoxetine and these thoughts have subsided.

My problem is that I feel constantly tired with no motivation to do anything; I have difficulty concentrating and feel generally lethargic and lacklustre.

Does anyone else feel like this while taking Fluoxetine? I recently had a general health 'MOT' with blood tests for liver/kidney function, thyroid, blood sugar etc so it is unlikely there is a different underlying cause. Or is it just a symptom of my age/state of mind? I am 58, generally fit and active.

Dihydrocodeine :: Spinal Fusion - Only Possible Cure?

after contracting cervical spondylosis through an industrial accident i have taken many different forms of medication, namely diclofenac, tramadol and co-dydramol, none work, two disc replacements later, c5-c6 c6-c7, still symptoms persist, tramadol are horrendous, sleepless nights itchiness mild vertigo drowsiness, a truly awful drug, diclofenac caused some form of breathing difficulty, although im not an asthma sufferer, i think the only possible cure for this illness is a spinal fusion, my surgeon seems reluctant in doing this as he is trialling new discs, i never wanted to be a guinea pig, i just wanted to be cured, four years later im worse than ever, no work cant drive cant sleep at night, any ideas?

I'm a 14 yr old girl and recently I'VE been feeling a lack of air in my chest that comes and goes. It's like okay when I'm distracted but right when I stop speaking that "empty feeling" in my chest comes again so I'd have to breathe in deeply to tell myself I'm ok. This happened ever since my asthma /anxiety attack 2 weeks or so ago and I took a blue puffer, but it finished and I'm better now but ever since I stopped this happened,,..

Depression :: Lack Of Energy

I don't know if it's anything to do with my depression, but I have absolutely no energy.  I move so slowly that I look like a 70 year old.  I feel wooly headed and don't fall asleep till at least 4 am every morning.  I'm wasting my life sleeping all day.  My doctor seems really disinterested in things and puts it down to my getting older.  It feels hopeless that I'm doomed to feel like this for the rest of my life.  Has anyone else had this feeling of living in slow motion?

Sexual Health Men :: Lack Of Ejactulation

I am 66 and I would guess overweight and I take medication for type 2 diabetes. Lately I feel the need to masturbate and start off, I am erect and I can feel it starting. Then the feeling goes away and I can no longer feel that I will ejaculate and my feeling of wanting to masturbate.

This will even happen when I am with my partner and he tries but again no success.

It is starting to bother me and not sure what is wrong and what I should or could do to change the situation.

When i do it myself myself i feel a little of of pleasure but nothing spectacular. She was a virgin when we first met so it's not a lack of tightness with her.

Pilonidal Sinus :: Lack Of Healing

I had an operation to remove a pilonidal sinus on 24th july. 5 months on and I don't really feel any better off. I didn't say anything when I first discovered the problem as I didn't think anything of it. I only said something once I found out my brother had the same problem! I must have had the sinus for around 2 years before I had the operation, something which I deeply regret now. The wound was a very deep one and I was expecting it to be a long while before it had fully healed, but not this long! I was told by the nurses about 2 months ago that it was only a few weeks away from being fully healed, but it got infected and has set me back a long way. I have to say I do feel a little let down by the nurses I have been seeing. Fair enough they have a tough job but I have questioned quite a few of their decisions during this recovery period. Surely they should be able to see an infection developing on a nearly recovered wound. The fact I was the one who had to push for antibiotics to cure the problem is worrying. I feel I have been palmed off in other ways too. Since the infection, there seems to be little or no healing, and despite persistence from myself to either see the surgeon again or visit a wound clinic they have been very reluctant to do anything. The inconsistency with the nurses has also been a major concern of mine. One day I will see a nurse who says it's not looking great, and the next, I will see someone who hasn't seen it for months, which gives me no idea of how it's doing.

In the last few weeks, I have discovered a lump at the base of my spine, and looking at information on the internet, I'm pretty sure it's a cyst. The annoying thing is that I have told the nurses 3 times about this lump and they either say they don't think it's anything to worry about or they simply don't know what it is. I need closure on this issue and have booked another appointment with the doctor to get to the bottom of it. (I saw him 3 weeks ago with the nurse and he said the wound was looking ok, and that I should give it another few weeks to see if there has been any improvement). There is also a pretty strong odour which is embarrassing. I've got to do something to try and cure the problem. It's driving me crazy and I can't see an end to the problem right now. I'm going to request either being referred back to the surgeon or to a wound clinic. Have any of you been to wound clinics that you would recommend? What are the processes involved? Are they effective?

This problem has kept me from doing some of the things I love, such as playing football, for almost half a year now and will inevitably be longer. There's only so many jokes you can make about it before the depression and annoyance kicks in. It's really getting me down at the minute. Luckily I'm taking a gap year this year and will be going to uni next year, which will hopefully give me time to recover from this nightmare. (Hopefully being the major word!!)

Headaches :: Due To Stress And Lack Of Sleep?

I'm 16 and consider myself to be quite healthy. About two weeks ago I started to get headaches that have been constant every day (I still have them now). The pain is quite dull, the pain is not so bad that I can't continue with my daily activities but it's still there. They also come and go. I don't wake up in the middle of the night because of them but I get them constantly throughout the day.

After a week of having these headaches I went to my doctor who suggested it was stress and lack of sleep (I have just started college) but I'm not so sure. He also suggested it could be eye strain and advised me to go get my eyes tested which I am going to soon. I am worried it could be a brain tumor or another serious illness. What do you think?

Impotence? Lack Of Erection Due To Stress

My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 months now.  The sex (when it happens) is amazing!  However, let me backtrack a bit....Around the same time we got together, he also got a really important promotion at work, adding a ton of additional stress onto his already stressful job. We share an incredible chemistry but sometimes, when it comes down to intercourse, there is either a lack of erection or an erection that isn't cohesive to lovemaking:(  This isn't every time!  But the times it happens, I can't help but feel like its me.  He says its not me, but its only human nature for me to think it is.  I would totally marry this man and start a family!  But....what if this is what lies ahead for us?  Is this worth ending a relationship?  Is there a solution other than quitting his job?

Thyroid :: Nodule - Lack Of Iodine?

I was diagnosed with 3.6cm nodule and biopsy was done and found to be benign. Since then I have done quite a bit of research on this. I am an extremely healthy person having a very healthy diet and do regular exercise. I have high energy levels and don't feel anything from the nodule. I wonder why I have this in the first place. After all the research, my conclusion is that it may be a result of losing Iodine. I do regular hot yoga and may sweat too much. Anybody has heard of this? Has anybody tried taking Iodine supplement and is it effective?
