In brief: No
You might have a thyroid problem. Hypothryoidism can make you feel "slow and drowsy" there are other medical conditions that can make you feel that way too.
Find a doctor who will take the time to find the real cause of your problem and not just prescribe drugs for symptoms.

You describe low energy and difficulty with thinking.
There are a number of causes for symptoms like these. Have your primary care doc rule out medical conditions using your history and risk profile. Major depression is a combination of symptoms - see below. If it fits, ask for a psychiatrist. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001941.
