I am taking Wellbutrin and citalapam for depression. In the past, Ihave also taken lexapro and xanax. I cannot seem to enjoy anything or force myself to do things that I know I should do. Anymore, I don't want to go anywhere and only go when absolutely necessary, i.e. grocery store, doctor appointments. I don't even clean house anymore and delay showering for days. My therapist, who prescribes my medications, says I just have to force myself to get out and find something I enjoy. I try to explain to her that I can't force myself - I simply do not want to leave my comfort zone. Where is that medication that "lifts the clouds" and turns you into a new person? Talking to a psychiatrist didn't seem to do anything for me, nor did talking to a therapist or counselor. Am I expecting too much? I'm ready to stop taking these pills as they don't seem to do a thing for me.
