Melancholic (endogenous) depression can bring with it psychomotor redardation. Perhaps that can explain finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning. One tip off for melancholic depression is that people feel much worse in the morning than in the evening. Also, early morning awakenings. Melancholic depression can be very painful - psychic pain.

I don't know for sure, but couldn't anergia prevent one from getting out of bed? I haven't studied this issue closely enough to be sure of anything. I have what the NIH concluded to be bipolar depression. That sounds right for me. My depression looks like a hybrid of melancholic + atypical. Lots of anergia, anhedonia, and moderate amotivation. I get up right away when I wake up in the morning - 6:30 AM. The middle of the day is the worst for me.

Do you think that amotivation is a part of all types of depression?

Lamotrigine is a necessary ingredient in my treatment.


Nardil 90 mg/day
Nortriptyline 100 mg/day
Lamictal (GSK) 300mg/day
Lithium 300 mg/day

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
