    Hi there, I’ve been on fluoxetine for a few months now an also experienced this initially, it did pass for me and the benefits of the drug now definitely outweigh the side effects I had. Stick with it a while longer, maybe try taking your dose at a different time of the day to try and aid sleep a little more? I wish you all the best.

    Hi Dana- I had horrific anxiety from it and had to get off..just couldn't handle it. Hopefully, your experience will be more like louise's. Good luck to you. :-)

      I didn’t start anything else. Too scared. My anxiety was unbelievable. Didn’t sleep for 2 days and couldn’t sit still.. literally paced for hours on end. Hope your experience is better!!!
