Hi,

Lately I'm feeling mentally exhausted. When I do a routine commute i feel knocked out afterwards and can't function unless I rest. In general my head isn't working right. I forget the details of things that happened the day before which is very inconvenient and sometimes embarrassing. It feels like my head is just stuffed and that my thinking isn't clear. I often feel like I'm in a haze.

I feel mentally exhausted and run down.

What would cause this? Does this have a name? Can this be treated pharmacologically?

Things to consider: sleep, exercise, nutrition, medical problems (check labs), medications/supplements causing side effects.
Let me know about these things.

I just spoke to my psychiatrist about this he's prescribing Concerta for those symptoms. Does that sound right?

Could help. Let me know how you make out. If side effects on it, consider Nuvigil.
