Depression/anxiety shaking symptoms

Posted , 5 users are following.

I've been on Prosac for 3 months for major depression. I felt really good (normal) for the first 3 weeks of November. Then I started to get this slight shaking in my body every once in awhile. Now I have it constantly all day all night. A slight kind of cold like tingling/shaking in arms, legs in combination with short breathing. I even wake up in the middle of the night shaking? Is it a side effect of prosac or is the prosac 40mg a day not working now? Or what is it and how do I get rid of it?

    Hi

    You have to advise your doctor of these symptoms

    Prozac was bad for me but everyone is different. I take lexapro 10mg and ativan .5 as needed.. You may need a anti anxiety pill to help with the Prozac.. Like Valium,xanax or ativan in a low dose.

    It could be the Prozac.  It was a very bad anti depressant for me, gave me lots of awful side effects.  I know it suits some people.  You should talk to your doctor about how you are feeling.
