Recently I have started a medicine for stomach problems. It does list depression as a side effect, but we decided to try it even though I've been depressed 4 1/2 years now. I am not any more depressed though I do feel like I am extremely tired, but when I lay down it is like I have 'ants in my pants'. I just toss and turn, get up, sit down, change positions and I do not understand why. I know when I took antidepressants they made me anxious, but this is not a antidepressant, though the medicine does effect dopamine. Would the dopamine make me act this way?
Also, in a recent intake interview a counselor asked, 'Do you want to be this way?' Why do they do that?
