    I'm so sorry to hear about what happened when you were young. It is unbelievable how parents could harm their children......

    Although I don't have some of your side effects, you'll find same side effects happened to other people if you read up on other postings. You have been taking Fluox for 7 weeks now, I hope it is showing improvement. Hang in there and be strong for you and your children. This shall pass soon!

    Good luck!! Take care.

      Thank you for commenting I do read up on alot of posts its unreal to see how many people have bad anxiety.. I no the fluoxetine has done a big difference to what I use to be like I was so bad I didn't leave my house I was so scared.. but constant feeling anxious then fearing of dying and struggling for breathe badly is just to much I try to stay strong but I have a child with bad behaviour problems and hes always very angry and constant abusing the other kids hes being diagnosed of 13th july and that causes me alot of stress as font know how to deal with him xxxx

    2.5th of Prozac is an unusually low dose. You probably need an increase or something else for anxiety. I always did. You are at such a low dose of Prozac that it couldn't possible be helpful or cause side effects. Call your doctor. You need further intervention of some type.

      Hello Pamela I next have my next psychiatric on 28th june ive seen my doctor but where I'm under mental health my own doctor refuses to see me regarding my anxiety.. I did try yo up my dose to 5ml and I felt 10x worse I had thoughts of hurting myself so I went back to 2.5.. it's so hard especially when I have 5 done to deal with and 2 have behavioural problems and highly stress me out and I dont get a hideaway and my partner stays away every fortnight at his mums with his first babymoms son as he can't stay with me as he cause so much trouble that doesn't help me so I have 5 kids to deal with on my own xxx
