Any advice/support would be much appreciated. I have been prescribed 20mgs Fluoxetine but I am terrified to take them. I have 3 children (one is a toddler) and I work full time, and additional hours working from home. I function at such a high level and my family rely on me so I am so scared of any side effects. I had an episode like this 4 years ago and my GP tried Sertraline which I reacted very badly to, hence my fear. I then went onto Mirtazapine which I felt was a wonder drug but I gained soooo much weight. My weight is currently getting me down so daren't add to it.
I guess my question is if I start the Fluoxetine will I still be able to sleep, will I be able to work? Or is there any way of taking the Mirtazapine and not putting on weight?
