I still feel like a zombie like in a daze.I feel like I'm just here and I'm a little better than before but still feel like crying in the morning. I just want to be happy and want to laugh again and joke around. It's like I just want to sit here and not talk to anyone or do anything.

    I can't offer advice, I'm on day two... But just wanted to let you know you're not alone. I end up just staring into space for hours if I'm left alone. Read Sharon's thread - it's full of hope! Looks like eventually it's all worth it in the end. Really hope so. Good luck xx

      How do I find her thread? I'm on my mobile. A lot of the ppl have the same side effects but the daze thing drives me crazy sad especially at work. I will ask patients the same question again I think sometimes because I'm caught up in my own thoughts.

      It's okay! I appreciate your advice. I'm just completely miserable and don't know ifs hormones or still depression. I'm glad your feeling better though!

    The fog does lift after a week or so. I remember sitting in a meeting with my boss thinking 'I have no idea what you're talking about...' I was so easily distracted. Give it time, I'm sharper than a tack now! (7 months down the line...)

      Thank you! I also am up and down a lot which I know is normal but I feel hateful and snappy at times. Did that ever happen to you? Like I'll be good a few hours then just get hateful and it scares me. I guess I'm worried the meds won't work and I just found out I'm pregnant so I don't know if it's the meds or the hormones. I've been on them about 5 weeks and that's how far along I am so I have no clue. So depressing

      Well congrats!! Is it your first? I don't know for sure but when I was pregnant I was a moody b1tch for the whole 9months - def nothing to do with meds. The first three months of being pregnant make your body go haywire - tired, sick etc - especially if it's your first. Try and get as much rest as possible, I would think it's hormones rather than the meds. Prozac really does help but give it time. Not easy when you're in the thick of it, I know, but just be kind to yourself and don't beat yourself up about being blue. X

      No I have a daughter that's 6. This wasn't planned as I had a miscarriage at 5 1/2 months 2 years ago and went on prozac afterwards it snapped me out of it in 3 weeks and then I only took it two months and was good for 2 years. I guess I was extremely lucky. Now I had a miscarriage in October and an extremely depressed again now. I was on birth control so I don't know how I got pregnant. The amount of time I've been pregnant I've been on Prozac so I really have no clue what's my hormones or meds. Last time I only took 10 mg and now I'm taking 5 so I'm sure it needs upped but I'm scared of side effects for the baby so I'm trying to at least wait till after the first trimester. I've just never felt this hateful and it's scary sad because it's not me.
