Please read and offer any advice you can!
I am a 20 year old female. I currently take an anti-depressant (Celexa), a stimulant for ADHD (Vyvanse), and a birth control pill (Microgestin Fe 1.5/30).
I have been suffering from extreme fatigue for nearly a year. I sleep 7-8 hours a night and have to take a nap every day. It's ruining my college life, not just socially but academically. I often skip class, sometimes I never leave my apartment. If I don't nap, I become irritable and depressed, as if I'm sleep deprived.
So far, doctors have treated me for iron deficiency (didn't help), gave me allergy medicine (didn't help), checked my vitamin levels and thyroid. I tried going gluten free (digestive system is better but no affect on sleepiness), supplementing with vitamins, drinking more water, taking better care of my sinuses. Nothing has fixed this! :(
(Side note: I've been on antidepressants for 5 years so I doubt that's the cause.)
