I have been on doxil since late Sept. and have been dealing with extreme fatigue since then. My doctor thought I should take an antidepressant which I have been on for 3.5 weeks and actually more fatigued/depressed. I am now referred for counseling which I am not opposed to. I think I am worse mentally - I have even thought of stopping chemo altogether since this is no way to live.
I have decided to wean off the antidepressant and started today. One of side effects of lexapro for 13% is extreme fatigue - maybe I fit that category.
I know Beila is dealing with fatigue also but spoke with another who is doing very well on doxil.
I thought I would share this, if anyone has feedback.
