I'm just into week two of taking fluoxetine. 20mg. I took this medication about five years ago and it was excellent. I know I'm only on week two but I'm having some side effects.
I seem to be mostly fine during the day. Except for a bit of a niggly headache on and off. It's the nights !!
I did feel slightly like I'm feeling at night before I started so I can't blame it all on the meds. But it's sort of got worse. I keep waking really early like 6am and I wake with a jolt, no gentle waking here. Then I have this really scary feeling of I'm guessing agitation or slight panic. My chest feels tight. I'm shaky inside but mostly my mind is racing. I'm thinking of about five different things at once in my head. I have to force myself to think slower and relax. Once I am awake and up and about that feeling goes and is just taken over by my usual anxieties. Will it get better ? Or when ? I haven't felt much brighter yet. Just these agitation and anxiety episodes on waking up. I really don't want to stop taking them because I remember when I took them years ago, they really helped me. Any advice please ? Thanks.
