Yesterday I was put on Fluoxetine 20mg capsules and i am looking for some advice on it.
Today I have been feeling sick all day on and off and unable to eat a lot, I am unsure whether this is normal, I know it is a side effect of the pill but I am unaware whether the side effects begin straight away.
I have been experiencing extreme anxiety, at some points a lot more than usual which I am also concerned about.
I have read that you just have to go through the side effects and feel worse before you get better but I didnt realise they would begin so soon.
I am also going on a girls holiday to Malia on friday of this week coming. I have been attempting to read about drinking alcohol with Fluoxetine, and what will happen but I am struggling to find a straight answer. My doctor who prescribed me the drug is aware when and where I am going on holiday and didnt mention anything about drinking and whether it would be a problem.
I know that the sensible option would be to not drink but Malia is the type of holiday that is totally based around drinking heavily, and I will be doing this for ten nights straight. I would find it very difficult to go there and avoid alcohol, so any advice would be helpful. I dont know whether I am better to stop taking it before and during my holiday, as I dont want to put myself at risk with drinking, and i dont want to ruin the holiday for my friends if I am experiencing trouble with side effects or my mood dropping very low. I would really appreciate some advice, I am going to phone my doctor on Monday but I would appreciate some help now as it is making me panic when I shouldnt be worrying. Thanks
