Worried about possible comorbidity with GAD?
k_flhtp posted:
I have been recently diagnosed with GAD (at the age of 20), and I am currently on Effexor (75 mg). I began noticing some symptoms that were not directly related to GAD (lack of ambition, "empty" feeling, fatigue). I have ruled out the symptoms as side effects of the medication, and I'm wondering if these are symptoms of comorbidity with depression.

This is a very touchy and confusing issue, as I am a psychology major. I often wonder if it is "all in my head", but after three days straight of staying in bed, I think there may be a need for action.
