Dr. William Holmes
34 years experience male
I am a board certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist. After more than 20 years in clinical practice I moved into a Medical Director position with Cenpatico Behavioral Health in Austin, TX. Cenpatico specializes in managing behavioral health benefits for a variety of populations coveted under Medicaid and Medicare. I continue to maintain a limited clinical practice, and I am currently licensed to practice in TX, LA, FL, KS, NE, and WA. In addition to my medical work I enjoy reading and hiking. As a seminary graduate and ordained minister, I am also very interested in the interface between mental health and spirituality.

A 68-year-old female asked:
Yes, Relatively: As others have already noted there is an increased potential for side effects due to the similar action of Prozac and Trazodone. However, it is common to use Trazodone with medicines such as Prozac to try help with sleep, and at low doses the risk is relatively small. However, since there is slight risk, it is important to be caution with the Trazodone dose and stay in contact with your provider.
A 29-year-old female asked:
Good Idea: Problems with the thyroid can be connected to changes in metabolism along with mood swings and other symptoms, so it would be a good idea to talk to your provider about getting lab tests related to your thyroid functioning. However, there are lots of possible reasons for your symptoms, so it will be important to get a good, comprehensive physical evaluation.

I usually just have cereal for breakfast, but I will experiment. Perhaps I'd feel better with fruit and oatmeal. Thanks for helping me think of something I've overlooked!
Thank you, your answer was very helpful! Very clear. There was one symptom I hadn't seen before, at least the way you put it - lack of initiation of movement/activity.
