3rd week on prozac

Posted , 4 users are following.

The last 3 weeks have been hell.. I'm on 30mgs. For anxiety n panic disorder.. I'm getting every single side effect u can get.. n the worst part about it is I was looking for help for my anxiety n it's giving it to me 100x worse.. I'm starting to give up.. I feel like I'm going crazy.. I cry every night to go to sleep bc the mornings are the worst.. when and does this anxiety, fear, panicy feeling go away.. please help I'm so scared.. I'm on 2mgs of ativan a day to help but that's barely doing anything..

    Id go see about trying something new. I have taken just 1mg in the past and it mellows me out. 2 seems like it should be doing something and more seems sketchy cuz of its addictive properties.

    I am just starting with a mix 20mg prozac and 20mg celexa. I have clonazepam i take 1mg to sleep and can take a .25 as needed. So far I have had 5 day of a better peace. I would report this asap as this sounds miserable. Sorry to here. Im sure each med work different for everyone and stress can make matters even worse as I think besides a TBI and seizures makes things worse.

      It's only been a week so I know it's possible to have some issues. One thing different I take in the am vs pm which I have always done. The 2 psychiatrists were both there at my visit because of my seizure issues. They favored the Prozac and clonazapam for sudden attacks. Have been in bad shape for months and know they make me miserable. Close many times going to ER. Been a long while to get here thinking something else but something major going on. Keep on your Drs and log what's going on each day and times.
