So I have now been taking fluoxetine for 3 weeks. I haven't found the side effects which have been most often reported on this site too bad - I haven't had much in the way of nausea, for example. I have been tired and not sleeping brilliantly but then that was how my depression had mainly manifested itself before medication anyway. I have, however, been feeling generally more depressed than before - my mood this week especially has been particularly low. Am back to see my GP next week but at times don't know if I can make it that far. Have been having some fairly disturbing thoughts (I'm sure you can fill in the gaps without me having to spell it out). Any advice, anyone? should I carry on for another week or go and talk to someone before then? I feel I am wavering between asking too much of friends / family or hiding away.
