Specializes in Psychiatry

Both your medical conditions, your psychiatric conditions and your medications could be contributing to your exhaustion. Dont' know when the last time your thyroid, carnitine and vitamin d levels were checked there are three common issues that can cause problems with fatigue. If these have not been checked it would be a good place to start. Having your diabetes well controlled is also very important. Ask your psychiatrist to assess you for atypical depression as it may respond well to a medication like wellbutrin (bupropion) if present.
