Ways of fighting depression-related tiredness?

Ok so I suffer from a couple of types of depression and hospital people are trying to treat me for it. But one thing I've never managed to shake is the tiredness they cause, mentally and physically.
I'm still trying to complete qualifications and I am expected to write lots of essays but because of it I can no longer keep up and don't have the energy to do them, not exactly something I want to have to explain to my teachers.
Anybody got any suggestions or have had this problem too? Thanks.

Fatigue, yes I have chronic fatigue, tiredness almost all the time, my neurologist prescribed provigil to help with it. There's something different for everyone I guess, ask your doctor:)

The first thing is to eat properly. There are certain herbs that could help such as: Gingko Biloba, and Ginseng. If you are on anti-depressant talk to your doctor first if you want to take Gingko.

My best friend suffers from this also. She has found that vigorous exercise everyday really helps.

Well one thing I can tell you is that going to the hospital about it will just make it worst because it will make you more depressed because they keep reassuring you that you are depressed so my advice to you is to talk to someone you feel comfortable with if you don't want to talk to family or friends you can always talk to someone you don't know so... you can talk about whats bothering you or what is making you sad Idk if you can private message people here bit your not alone you can always talk to me if you need some advice.

If you can't get 8 hours of sleep on a regular basis , or close to it it can run you down after a while, talk to a doctor or get a sleep study, I had this done and discovered I had sleep apthnea (exuse the spelling prob. Wrong) but that was, what was making me tired. ,hopefuly helpful for you , good luck.
