Excessive sleeping & shopping?

Recommended Posts

Worried about oversleeping, with other bizarre behaviors. This coincides with being given different brands of my meds, but seems unbelievable I'd have such extreme reactions to a simple change like brand to generic?? Only other change is stopped ritalin for a break.

Today I managed to get up by 9:45am (huge triumph), ate breakfast, showered. But then spent HOURS Amazon shopping (obsessively), trying to find a sundress and boots, (which I also was doing late last night until 2am - I saved stuff, but didn't buy)....Last few days, spent roughly $200 (in store) bought a bunch of sale sweaters, a dress, yet I spend most time at home in pjs at moment, so stuff I don't need.

This afternoon tried to read, but became drowsy, back to bed laying there half-asleep 3.5 hours. Middle of afternoon. My mood is fine, totally stable. I'm sleeping like 10-12 hours per night. All I want to do is lay in bed! Staring at walls or shopping online, all day. Anyone relate?

Do you get SAD at all? Winter doesn’t have to depress you. I consistently feel my worst every July, and feel best in winter. Aura gets manic in the winter.

I don't think so...I don't feel "bad" per se, I mean, my mood is fine, very stable, fairly content. It's more like an extreme form of laziness maybe, I'm not super fatigued or tired....its weird. No drive at all.

Argh is right. You can feel changes between brands. I had a major Wellbutrin issue last summer. Around here you can ask your doctor to specify name brand as medically necessary on your scrips. Maybe try that next time?

If so, I feel it pretty strongly - like it's a higher dosage of Effexor, more Serotonin effect making me drowsy-ish (pleasant, but L-A-Z-Y!)

The oversleeping and the overspending both sound to me like they could be related to the Ritalin change

Maybe it's a combination of all of the above...I don't feel driven at all, no desire to do anything, even cook.
