Feeling better

Posted , 6 users are following.

Just writing to give new starters support as I was going on this forum every day. I am now on fluoxetine 30 mg for 8,5 weeks and even though their is still a bit of anxiety I feel more happy and energetic to do things. The past weeks have been absolutely horrible. I had no idea it was possible to feel such physical sensations.

For those of you looking for support, hold on, you will get a lot better. Your thoughts will calm down and you will become more positive.

    I have anxiety all the time, my body is still shaking. I really wonder if this ever goes away as I see that when people stop taking fluoxetine, these feelings come back.

    Hang in Catherine and Jacqueline, it will get better?

    Sometimes I feel cloudy, and some times it is like my eyes have trouble focusing. I am not sure it is the same feeling. But hang in there, you will start feeling better.
