First mo, 10 mg, increased to 30mg by 3rd mo. Dr's directions... I began feeling more out of it while doing the 20 mg...would get periods of such tiredness, couldn't do anything all day.
After being on 30mg I turned into a zombie...my depression BEFORE was literally NOTHING to what it is now. Told Dr. (Just keep taking them) Well, every day is a mess...good thing I'm retired because most of my time in spent in bed... I try forcing myself to get out of my apt. bldg, but it literally is doing me no good anymore. Today I just kinda said: OK that is IT!!!! NO more of that _____! Another Dr switched me back to 20mg but it didn't do anything really...maybe a little less nausseated in the mornings. So beginning THIS EVENING...I am cutting myself down to 10mg per day. I will TELL my Dr this...he will not like it but it is MY body. Been cut back to 20 for 1 wk so figure thats enough... I know Prozac lasts longer in the body than ANY of the other SSRI's.... It has NEVER helped me to feel even a tiny bit better. I will get along with my anxiety and depression like I did before...with alternative meds/supplements. They may not always work as 'strongly' but at least I will feel ALIVE again...right now I feel like I have lost any sense of being able to do anything... I'll live through 'withdrawals' .
Well, thanks for 'listening'...if anybody has any Quitting Prozac stories they would like to share, I'll appreciate reading them. You all take good care.
