After discussing how tired I am with my therapist she looked at her notes and remembered I increased the Celexa not too long ago. Lynn thinks the medications could be causing my exhaustion, especially since I wasn’t this tired when I was drinking and the tiredness came on at the time of the increase in meds. She said sleepiness can be a side effect of Celexa. No shit Sherlock? Isn’t that the case for every SSRI?
Lynn commented that the Wellbutrin is known for having a positive effect on addiction so she didn’t want to change that right now since I quit drinking 2 months ago. It still took me a year to quit drinking so I don’t know if I would say Wellbutrin has helped with my sobriety but it definitely helped reduce my urge to eat. I’ve lost a bit more than 30 lbs and I feel pretty good about that. The other night I actually felt my hip bone protruding while I was lying on my back. I’m by no means thin but I went down 2 jeans sizes so that’s good!
I lowered the Celexa dose 3 days ago so time will tell if the Celexa was stealing my energy. I’ll keep you posted.
