New here.....I am on day 12 of fluoxetine. It’s been a rollercoaster.
I had a unexpected back surgery 4 months ago from a massive disk rupture that caused the most severe pain I didn’t know it could even get that bad. Since then I have been very anxious about getting hurt again and honestly a little depressed because I can’t do what I want. I have dealt with anxiety my whole life but this is a new level.
I went to see my pcp and she threw out a bunch of words, PTSD, ocd thoughts, and anxiety. That alone was scary for me and gave me anxiety. She put me on fluoxetine and told me she thought I should talk to someone too. Of course I can’t get into a psychologist until oct!!!! Yes 6 weeks from now! 😳
So I am riding this fluoxetine rollercoaster. I am nauseous and have no appetite, I have had a few good days but I have had a few bad days where I just can’t help but cry and my anxiety is off the charts. And I haven’t slept through the night since I started this medicine. I am trying my best to hang tight is hopes it gets better in a few weeks. Encouragement is always welcome!
