    Hi Rachel

    I cant begin to imagine what you have been through.

    I do hope it is the meds increase and nothing else.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery....

      I was getting awful thoughts too I was feeling hopeless and in a totally mess. They seem to think its the prozec said its known for it. Hope tomorrow is a calmer day. Their going to tell my doctor what they think I need they think its anxiety rather then depression. When I woke this morning my skin was burning so badly.

      I have seen others on here mention Anxiety meds. Prozac treats this too, but generally makes it worse before better.

      I suppose if Anxiety is more pronounced with you, this could be a massive stumbling block.

      Im not so good as i was yesterday, no idea why..
