I've posted here several times-I guess in an attempt to find if anyone has responded to this med as I have. I started Fluoxetine nine weeks ago and although there are some glimmers of normal, the majority has been abnormal. I see my PCP tomorrow but am worried. I don't want to add more to my already weakened brain state. I feel so off and foreign; unlike myself. I feel flat at times, then erratic crying the next. I have no history of mental illness aside from situational anxiety/panic. I'm worried to change from the Fluox because who knows what the next med will do. If I stop the Fluox under doctor's orders, how will my brain return to its former state of normalcy. I haven't felt like a person-a functional one-since April of last year when this nightmare began. I would like to know if anyone has experienced just a spacy-off feeling; feeling foreign in your own skin; non-functional.....Even having these symptoms, some have told me to stay the course-it gets better weeks 10-12....could that be possible with such a rocky start? What are the indicators a med is not ever going to work? I've been at this too long and so desperate for resolve.
