All I Do Is Sleep!

I am diagnosed with depression, ADHD, and panic disorder.
Last year, during a bad time I found myself sleeping more and more, up to 20 hours a day when I wasn't in school. I'd come home, shower and get in bed. At 3 in the afternoon. My mom was concerned, as she should have been. after months of this I went to a Psychiatrist and was first treated for depression with wellbutrin, began treatment for ADD with concerta but now I'm on adderall, and take Valium/xanax for my panic attacks as needed.

But i'm SO tired. all the time. there is not any medical reason, according to tests, as to why. I'm on 60 milligrams of Adderall a day. I'm only 110 pounds, and I've only been on this med for a few months. I don't know if it's just due to me being depressed (my home life is really tough right now) or what... but it's scaring me. At first I was able to do stuff like normal on adderall, but after a few weeks I began to feel tired again, no matter how much I take. Ritalin too, same thing. Caffeine helps to an extent, but brings me up to liveable, so I have an addiction to energy drinks.

I don't know what's wrong with me. and my doctor said it could just be because I'm "growing" (COME ON, 16+ hours in bed is NOT normal OR healthy). I don't know what to do.
