Welcome Carpe:
I don't have a lot of time, but wanted to respond real quick to your post....
An answer to your question if Percs. make u tired, Yes, that is a top side-effect of them. I was once addicted to Lorcets, and even though they gave me "energy", i would crash down off them and be MORE tired than before.
I too suffer from pretty bad depression, so i've always had issues w/fatigue. That's actually why i became addicted to the opiates....bcuz when i took them, i got a burst of energy. After about a yr. of taking them though, the "burst" wasn't coming anymore and i was just tired all the time.
If u have serious depression as you said, and your not taking any medication, then of course your going to be very fatigued from the depression.
It's so frustrating bcuz having depression causes such EXTREME fatigue, being on meds. do help, but then u start to wonder if the meds. are causing more fatigue. But i've had a lot of experience w/being off and on meds. for mine, and when it comes down to it....we need this med. And NOT taking it, only causes us to be more depressed, which is more exhausting then being on a medication.
I know i'm going round and round in circles here. What i'm basically saying is that even though meds. for depr. say "may cause drowsiness", more than likely, IF we aren't on any type of med. to help balance out the chemicals, we will be alot more tired than ON med.
So stick w/the Wellbutrin first of all, and others on the board wil give advice on tapering or going CT. Going CT when u have been taking 14pills for that long of a time, will be very difficult. You may be better w/tapering.
You HAVE to be patient's not a "quick fix" EVER to stop meds. And u have to be sure your doing it for yourself, and not just to get your boyfriend back, or else your not going to have as much hope in staying clean.
Good luck, and keep us posted.!!!
