Well after 3/4 months (cant remember my heads a mess) of fluoxetine, my doc has doubled my dose to 40mg as I was starting to go down hill real fast, and had tried to do some stupid stuff last weekend as it all got a bit to much. I’ve only been on the 40mg for 5 days, but I feel so crap. I’ve spent the whole weekend in bed with really bad headache, feeling sick, dizzy, no appetite, not sleeping & like I’m about to pass out.
I’ve come into work as I have so much to do & don’t get sick pay, but I feel so crap, just took a bunch of painkillers & red bull to see if it can help sort me.
I know I have to just ride this out as I want to feel better but dam its hard!!
Doc was lovely, the one I usually see about all this had phoned in sick so had to see someone else which gave me mini panic attack, but she was lovely & understanding (cried with the relief of it) and because my counsellor is off for 2 months (having op) the doc has said I can go in once a week to see her as extra support & if need her more can phone or have an extra appt & she’s gonna tell the reception to give me appointment if I call – couldn’t believe it, thought she would be judgmental at what I’d did/been doing to self & think oh no another crazy person.
Sorry, babbled on a bit there, just so relieved to have a nice doctor who is so understanding even tho I have these horrible side effects.
Hope everyone else is doing ok xx
