I've had no luck with anti-depressions,benzos work very well but tiredness is an issue.
I stopped benzos 6 months ago,after 10 years,and now same feelings are back.

I may try anti-depressions again is there any that can help increase energy?

I've seen some people react very well to pyscotropics but they just seem to put me in outer space??

Recommending anti-depressants is a bit out of my comfort zone. I have tried several over the past few years, and I have found that what works well for one person doesn't always work well for others. Also, I could be wrong here, but I don't see why being on suboxone would effect how any anti-depressants would react in your system. It seems like that would be completely unrelated to me.

All of this being said, I can share what I have experienced. I took Paxil for about a year during 2002-2003. This was pre suboxone therapy, and really pre dated my serious addiction issues. It worked well for me during the time I needed it. I had no problems discontinuing treatment with it when I felt I didn't need it any longer.

Fast forward to today. LOL...big changes in mental stability post addiction. I started out trying Lexapro which I could not tolerate. It gave me a serious energy buzz which wasn't entirely uncomfortable the first few days but wound up turning into serious anxiety and tension issues. I then switched to a newer drug, Pristiq, it has worked very well for me. I don't feel any difference at all while I am taking it. The only side effect is a bit of decreased sex drive...which I guess I could afford to knock down a peg or two anyway. :P

Anyway, my point was...be careful taking recommendations from anyone else about things like this. I had several friends who swore Lexapro was a miracle for them...not so much for me!

Thanks.I'm at a major cross roads after being on disability for 5 years and now that I can go back to work I'm facing some of the consequences of addiction and the limitations of my disability


It could be when I stop smoking depression will lift it's head .After 1-2 days of not smoking,but using a patch,by the 3rd of fourth day depression was horrible.
Some say depression is anger turned inwards but I think it's not that simple.I do't feel angry when depressed I feel empty and sad.Maybe anger is hiding??


I've heard that a type of green alge can bring on good mood and high energy.Vit B used to work for energy without any crash,tiredness or any other side effects.

Depression may have been due to holidays.I guess I'll find out.
