I have tried this healthy lifestyle thing for a while now but still effectively manage to sabotage all my efforts.
My GP said that I am burnt out. I saw a psychiatrist last week and he said that I was depressed and that my life was ****. He recommended a middle dose of Mitrazapine for six weeks and for two years if the trial was successful.
I was Googling this med and saw weight gain and a whole host of other unhealthy side-effects mentioned. Would it make sense to trial it or to ask if another one would be more appropriate? I have trialled different classes of ad's in the past with limited effect due to side-effects and non-compliance.
I'm pretty anti-meds so I don't want to put myself out there only to get fat.
I respect your opinion a lot and just wanted to know if medication was safe.
I'm pretty shut down and not functioning that well. I did join an athletics club and was running 20+ km in the weekend but ... almost every second thought was I can't and mentally and physically I couldn't cope. I'm trying to run now but have kind of flagged my goals of running several half marathons well.
Will medication help me to get active and to get my life back. I lack insight or judgement around meds.
Could you just say it is like it is and what you think. I would really appreciate your honest opinion.
