YANMD: SSRI morning fatigue

I started Prozac (10, then 20 mg) about 2 months ago. I think it's starting to work -- generally I am feeling more optimistic and peaceful. However, it has not helped to motivate me at all! The biggest issue is that in the mornings, I can't seem to get out of bed. At the height of my depressive episode, I had the same problem getting out of bed, except it was dread about facing the day. Now, it's not dread --it's just that the bed is so darn comfortable and it takes SO MUCH EFFORT to finally get up. It probably takes me 2 hours every morning to get going. I don't want to switch medications since it seems to be working on my mood-- any advice on how to get going a little faster each day?
