I'm on day 55 of 20mg and I feel weird. I'm not shaking as much but I keep getting tension headaches (might be due to weather, stress or bad neck/shoulders) and my anxiety is weird. I just feel out of it, my thoughts can be really weird or hard to control and I feel like I'm not myself. I talk to someone and I find myself thinking would I normally say/think that? My memory is weird too, I have learning difficulties which affect my memory anyway but my mind is so muddled it's hard to recall stuff and I'm doubting my memory. I guess I feel kind of dopey and just muddled. Is this normal for anxiety/depression/fluoxitine? I guess I'm just scared its something worse because I feel so weird.

    Understood. I'm coming up on 5 month's and just this last month have noticed a great relief. I was prescribed 40mg but wanted to give 20mg a long while as well as CBT with psychologist on stress and anxiety. Focus on what I can do today. Hit the gym, color, read,music. Stay away from the people that stress me out. Definitely a long process and would be nice if it was simple but as you know it's not.

      Normal for me is what I've been trying to reach. I understand getting there is easier for some than others. Reading others testimonies will help you with your own. I've learned alot here from others who have had similar journeys. Seems like forever but it will pass. It is definitely a hopeless feeling at the start and middle stage's of our brains working it out. You will get there. I've found in others readings that alot of the symptoms are similar but not always exactly the same.
