A good day :)

Posted , 11 users are following.

Well after feeling better for a few days. Last week I had a blip 😦 it was not a very good one. And today I have woke up and the feeling of feeling ok it's great. I don't feel great just ok. But that's a lot better than the past few days. And it makes me happy 😃

      Hi, I am not sure about Prozac because I have never been on it. I think with all antidepressants it takes time... if your state is not as severe, the lowest dose might help but my depression has been bad so I have reached the highest dose 2 weeks ago and still have better and bad days. All the best x

      thanks for that hopefully things might soon improve just thought some ssris might be quicker to work .when i came off prozac 1 yr ago i tried a nutrionist to see if suppliments would works but didnt have much luck but it might be better than anti depression side effects.have you tried anything like that i think if you could get the correct combination it might work i keep checking on line to see if there is anything new in the offing.the side effects im getting this time are bad and i dont remember them being as bad last time im sure i would have remembered.my depression is not good plus ive got anxiety this time i also didnt rse every time u increase the dose after about 2 /3 wks in the symptoms are as bad or worse than before.how have you found it any different.i least being on this forum you can talk to people who are feeling the same and it does help.x

      Give it another 2 to 3 weeks. Keep your doctor up to date with how you feel

    lorraine05360 asked the right question, what is the dose and how often? Usually Mirtazapine is better for anxiety than Sertraline due to its sedative effects. Though, I'm glad you had a good day 😃 keep it up and things will improve.

    I think we have to accept there will always be blips from time to time. Must remember they are temporary.. not easy when having one I know!

    Hope you have a good day!
