I'm having the same problem with effexor. I've been sleeping 12-14 hours a day and all I feel like doing is laying in bed because I have no energy. I stopped working out because of lack of energy and I even stopped going for walks with my dog because I'm so tired, exhausted, and drowsy. I just have no energy or motivation to do anything at all which is actually worsening my depression as a result.
