So I'm on my 5th week of Prozac. After an otherwise healthy and happy 51 years of life, I had a heart stent (lucky to cathc it) and then had gastric issues and Barrett's syndrome dianosed. I guess it wore on me more than I knew beacause I started to develop headaches, leg weakness, dizziness, massive fatigue, wanting to sleep forever,. etc. and my doctor diagnosed that as physical symptoms of depression and put me on prozac. More side effects of fatigue, etc. - the normal story on Prozac. Starting my 5th week yesterday and while I have noticed a less downtrodded mood, no more crying, and seeing better days in my grasp, these side effects are brutal and really take me down a couple of notches. Usually sleep okay, but had my worst night ever last night of sweats, racing heart, headache, clamyness, etc. Normally it's just headaches and dizziness. By far the worst so far - I'm hanging in there but it's really hard. I don't have panic attacks, etc., it's just these very hard physical symptoms - anyone been through this and come out on the other side - would appreciate the encouragement.
