I haven't posted in a while but thought I would like to share my experience on 20 mg Fluoxetine.
I started the med in late November so I am now 6 month in. i haven't missed a dose and I take it first thing in the morning during breakfast. I experienced very bad side effects initially for at least the first 12 weeks- like some people on here I had headache,trembling, increased anxiety, insomnia and bad stomach (heartburn bloating). The only thing that remains is the insomnia which I still struggle with. I probably noticed an improvement after 3 months but you think the drug will never start to work,however now after 6 months I feel almost back to my old self. There are some subtle changes that I have noticed in my character and I sometimes think I am more forgetful than I used to be but overall I am very pleased with the outcome. The next step will be either staying on the drug or coming off it, my Dr says to wait at least another 3-4 months and we will take it from there. Good luck to everyone.
