Hello. I have posted before on this thread, but I have a few questions..
In the past I have stopped and started fluoxetine, twice. Each time I have gotten back on it, I have never really had any side effects... I started back extremely slow 20mg for over a month, and am now on 40mg and have been for about 2 weeks. (optimal goal 60mg) However, this time I am noticing some strange effects.. My ears have begun ringing and popping and almost feel like there is pressure inside of them. It isnt non-stop, but the popping and pressure sensation is. I have also noticed that it has increased my anxiety.. Almost to the point of paranoia.. I also take 150mg of lamictal (goal 200mg) I am not sure if the lamictal is contributing or not.. It's hard to tell since I have recently increased both.. This will be my third day on 150mg. Does anyone have any idea of what could be happening? I really don't want to give up on my meds as I know they have worked in the past.. However, I am begininng to feel like they won't work, which is quite depressing and anxiety causing (I have anxiety in the form of intrusive thoughts.. I have never been formally diagnosed but both my GP and Pysch. doctor agree that I have obsessive complusive tendencies. Not that I obsessively clean, but I have Intrusive thoughts. Almost as if a CD is skipping in my head and repeating the same thoughts.. I went back to my reg. GP who represcribed my meds. My GP was intially who prescribed prozac and the lamictal was later added by pysch. I would love to go back to my Pysch. but unfortuantely she moved over 2 hours away. I was on an income based sliding scale with her, as my insurance only covers catastrophic events and medications. I have been looking for pysch. that will accept me, but so far I am having a hard time.. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
