Patient Question

Hello Doctor,

Can you prescribe medication to help me regain energy and motivation in the mornings? I was addicted to meth for 27 years, but I've been sober for 2 years now and struggle to get out of bed.


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Initially, overcoming this may pose challenges and require persistent effort. When embarking on your journey towards renewed energy and motivation, it's essential to recognize that progress may be gradual and sometimes tedious. However, with dedication and commitment, positive changes can be achieved. Begin by establishing a structured morning routine aimed at kickstarting your day on the right note. Setting your alarm for an early wake-up time can be the first step in reclaiming your mornings. Though it may feel daunting at first, the act of rising early can set a proactive tone for the day ahead. Engaging in physical activity, such as a brisk 30-minute walk, can invigorate your body and mind, helping to shake off any lingering feelings of lethargy. Not only does exercise boost endorphin levels, promoting feelings of well-being, but it also sets a positive precedent for the remainder of your day.Following your exercise routine, treat yourself to a warm, revitalizing shower. The sensation of warm water cascading over your body can help awaken your senses and prepare you for the day ahead. Taking this time for self-care can serve as a gentle reminder of your commitment to your well-being. As you emerge from your shower feeling refreshed, indulge in a nutritious breakfast to fuel your body and mind. Opt for foods rich in complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats to provide sustained energy throughout the day. By prioritizing nutrition, you're not only nourishing your body but also supporting your overall health and vitality. With each passing day, you'll gradually notice an increase in motivation and energy levels. These positive changes are a testament to your dedication and resilience in the face of adversity. However, it's essential to remain vigilant and address any underlying health concerns that may be contributing to your symptoms. Consider scheduling a comprehensive blood test to assess your renal profile, hepatic profile, complete blood count, diabetes, and cholesterol levels. Identifying and addressing any anomalies can provide valuable insights into your overall health and well-being, guiding your journey towards optimal vitality.
