Feel worse again

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've been on prozac 40mg for 3 weeks and I hit rock bottom last week then began becoming happier. But now I see that I am depressed again and having mood swings and some anxiety. It is not as much but is this common?

    Yes unfortunately. On a plus note it will get better. I will have been on 40mg for 8 weeks tomorrow & I'm starting to have really good days & the bad times are in hours now & getting better. I've been where you are now so I really feel for you but stick with it because when it kicks in its so worth it.

    Yes mood swings are common when recovering on this type of medicine.  Keep persevering and you'll find in time you'll start to feel better.
