Being on 120mg of propanolol is causing terrible symptoms, such as tiredness, I lack energy, weak, should I stop taking it?

Yes/ no: Propranolol is a good medication to control symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Unfortunately it (like all medicines) can cause side effects especially at higher doses. Other medications may potentially be substituted for propranolol, but they also may cause unwanted symptoms. It's complicated and you need to involve your doctor and an endocrinologist.

Extreme lack of energy, daytime tiredness and difficulty focusing due to stress?

Not sure of question: If these are new symptoms, i'd strongly recommend that you have a check-up, first with your primary care doctor. There are lots of physical conditions that can cause these symptoms, as well as psychiatric ones such as depression and anxiety. You deserve a better life, and the first step well may be finding out what is going on. If it is "just" stress, then you may need help dealing with that.

Can a decreased kidney function (30%) cause tiredness, lack of energy, and feeling faint?

Symptoms kidney: At age of 18 if your kidney functions are 335 nprmal you have other issues to worry about as to what is the cause of it and if the causal disease is causing the symptoms. As such reduced renal function down to 33 5 does not usually create too many symptoms but as they reduce further you may see these appear kidney function is just one measure you should be seeing a good nephrologist if this is you.

Extreme: Extreme fatigue is a very concerning symptom. It sounds like you have significant medical conditions. Please be sure your thyroid levels have been checked recently. You may need other blood tests including to be sure you are not anemic. Please be sure that your blood pressure is running normally. Your doctor will want to know about these symptoms.

Fibroid tumor?: Endometriosis? Adenomyosis? Anemia? are the possible medical problems you may have and can not be diagnosed from distance. You need to see a provider in person to get blood test, radiologic imaging studies, pelvic exam. Good luck with it.

I'm vegetarian and have been working out 3x a week for 2months whilst cleaning my diet for health. I'm still tired and lack energy. Is this iron deficie?

I'm vegetarian and have been working out 3x a week for 2months whilst cleaning my diet for health. I'm still tired and lack energy. Is this iron deficie?

Your goals are great: But you would be safest to make these changes w/professional guidance from a doc, nutritionist, etc. Vegetarians are vulnerable to B12 deficiency. If you take B12 use the sublingual type that melts under the tongue for good absorption, not the kind you swallow. Peace and good health.

I'm always tired lack of energy and motivation, what's going on with me?

Hard to say: Your symptoms are nonspecific, which means they can be from many causes. Maybe you're anemic and need iron. Maybe you have a sleep disorder and are chronically sleep deprived. Or maybe you are depressed. Because there are so many reasons why you might feel this way, it's important for you to speak with your doctor so that a correct diagnosis and treatment plan can be determined.

Is it common to feel a lack of energy when being weaned off morphine? Was on 45mg for years, Dr now has me on 15mg. Will be off in two weeks. So tired

Is it common to feel a lack of energy when being weaned off morphine? Was on 45mg for years, Dr now has me on 15mg. Will be off in two weeks. So tired

No: It is much more common to have a glutamate reaction with withdrawal symptoms. You might feel tired if you are using a benzodiazepine to cut down on these symptoms. Otherwise look for other causes of being tired like too little sleep, anemia and depression. Best wishes for good health

Child gets chronically tired in winter and lacks energy, falls asleep during the day and behaviour gets poor. Was tested for nutritional deficiency-?

Child gets chronically tired in winter and lacks energy, falls asleep during the day and behaviour gets poor. Was tested for nutritional deficiency-?

Malaise: If a child has seasonal problems, address possible seasonal allergies. Perhaps, there are increased molds or mildews in your house if you have a basement and your area has a lot of rain in the winter. Also, a lack of vit d may cause symptoms of depression. I would limit artificial light after sunset: no tv, computer, or cellphone use. I would increase exercise to maximize sleep quality.

I take 40mg nortriptyline before bed. However it's like a energy buzz. I'm wide awake all night. Day I'm fatigue. Lack energy & strength. This normal?

I take 40mg nortriptyline before bed. However it's like a energy buzz. I'm wide awake all night. Day I'm fatigue. Lack energy & strength. This normal?

Not really: Most people find that nortriptyline makes them sleepy. It's not bad that you're having these side effects; it just might not be the right medication for you. You might want to move it to the daytime and see if that works better for you. I don't know why you are taking it and that would make a difference if you could change to something with less side effects.
