How can fatigue and narcolepsy be treated?
I feel that you are experiencing depressive symptoms
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have gone through your problem in detail and can understand the painful feelings about your illness and your guilt feeling that you became burden to your daughter-in -law.
I just want to make you understand the fact that this is one of the important phase of life which is common for everyone of us.
It seems that you are feeling sad about your illness, and you are feeling guilty that you are depending on your daughter-in-law for your daily needs, so I would like to suggest you to start an antidepressant like MIRTAZAPINE to combat your depressive features.
If you feel that you are spending most of the time in sleep, you can start on ESCITALOPRAM, which is an effective antidepressant and does not cause much sedation. You can also combine with ETIZOLAM in the morning if you have any anxiety symptoms like palpitations, sweating, nervousness etc.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Be strong and confident, and fight for peace in life
I can say that life is the one, which can not be predictable at all, I'm still happy that you have understood this reality and have a thought to make it productive with all these health issues, this strong intention can make you strong from any such problems.
It was being said that you are taking xanax and zoloft, l would like to advise you can continue zoloft, but if possible try to switch from xanax to clonazepam or mirtazapine, as I hope which would be better for you.
You can discuss with your doctor regarding this, and follow accordingly.
Hope I have answered your query.
