Hi , I'm 23 years old and have had alot of emotional stress since i was 18 - i was at the dr on monday with a stomach problem which seems to have gotten worse. She said it was aggrivated by the high stress levels and prescribed me Lorien Tablets. I have been on them the last two days but don't feel all happy and chirpy.
I have also been a little ill - would this be the reason why i just feel so tired all day ande not liss for anything but to go sleep for days?

Please help!!!!

Lorien, like other members of it's chemical family, can help anxiety and depression, but they don't work instantly --- one should take them in full prescribed dose for at least 2 to 3 weeks before deciding whether they are being helpful. And in the meantime, checking out the availability of some CBT counselling would be wise, as that too can help a lot. being anxious and over-stressed can be very tiring, and if one becomes depressed, too, that can make one tired and sleepy, and make one lose interest in whatever usually turns you on --- which is a good reason for getting shrinks help to put the Depression right
