So I visited my GP today, and told him about my issues with Fluoxetine and all of the side effects I was suffering from. I wrote a list of my side effects and questions to ask the doctor. He told me that the anxiety symptoms and nausea were very common side effects, he was however very concerned that I didn't seem to be recovering after 3 weeks. So he has told me to come off of Fluoxetine and try a different medication.
The new medication he has prescribed me is Escitalopram (known as Cipralex) 5mg, it's an antidepressant with very little side effects. He also prescribed me Domperidone tablets to help with the nausea and vomiting (I have to take them 3 times a day).
Hopefully now I can recover and get back to normal, I've recently taken a Domperidone tablet and my appetite has increased slightly. I don't feel so nauseated as well.
