I went on Fluoxetine in 2005 when my son was diagnosed with cancer. I've been on 40 mgs daily since then. My son died this week, 4 years ago. I retired last summer and we moved to a new location. Life has been good. I went off fluoxetine cold turkey in October. Outside of a few heaches and dreams I did ok. It's been two months since I've been off and I think it's finally out of my system. However I noticed that since last week I have broken out in tears (something I haven't done in years) and have become very irritable and keep finding fault with my sister. I'm picking on things that she does and getting mad at her. i am attributing it to the fact the day my son died is on December 30th and I'm getting depressed. However, coud it be that since this is all out of my system now I am really back to being depressed and its not the fact that the anniversary is this week? I plan to remain off the drug at least until mid January and see how things go. Any opinions on whether this will last or if its temporary. All I do is sit in the house and eat. Thanks for reading this.
