Hi every one
Back again, well it's been 8 weeks now on this fluoxetine, never thought I'd ever get here, as every was a battle, hoping as each day passed the next would be good, doc put me on this as bad depression and I suffer with feeling really bad irratabilty, more so at night that this stops me from sleeping, or getting to sleep..
I can't keep still in bed, kicking out with my legs, and up and down out of bed wishing it would just stop, and let me sleep, I can feel it as it's in my blood going around my body, it drives me total mad,
During the day it's there if I sit down to relax my leg start swing or foot tapping, and I'm able to sit still, so I try to keep my self busy in the day time to help it, but at night I want to relax but my body won't let me, Iv tried meditation that I try to listen to when in bed, but it don't seem to help me ...
Fluoxetine as settled my depression down a lot, since the doc up it to 40mg, I'm due to see him next week, and I think he up it again to 60mg..
Which I don't mind as I didn't have any side effect when I went from 20 to 40 just better moods so I was pleased with that..
I'm also going through menopause and have now for past 2 years and think the irritated started then and just got worse, I can't go on HRT as I had blood clots on my lungs, so they say nothing I could have..
As any one felt this way? And will fluoxetine calm my irritable down in time, as I know 8 weeks is still quiet early for me to get the full kick in of this drug , is it just a mater of sitting tight and waiting as it will work at some point, or will I need to ask doc for some thing to help just with irritate at night, ????
But I don't think he wants to give me any thing as seems to be waiting for fluoxetine to work first, as he said it will...
It's just driving me mad, that I don't have any control over this alfull irritability and can't stand the nights any more..
Any help out there?? or answer ??I can take on board befor I crack up lol ... is this just normal what I have to just put up with, or will fluoxetine stop it in the end...
Any help would be great full 😞X
