I am just starting my 4th week on 20mg Fluoxetine. I am still getting stomach upset and thoughts racing/forgetting side effects. No idea how long this will go on. I think there is a very slight improvement in my mood (I have depression and severe anxiety) The doctor says to stick with them for another month then be reassessed. I have made myself try to write down anything that I have found positive each day, even if it is only seeing a bird in the garden or making myself cope with even the smallest task. Yesterday I managed to drive myself to the doctors which was HUGE, first time since November! It is crazy how even the most ordinary things seem unachievable when you are so depressed, just making a phone call is a massive trauma. Does anyone have any advice as to when there might be a real difference or when the side effects wear off? I had to come off Sertraline as the side effects were so appalling and in the past I have also had Seroxat, Citalopram and Venlafaxine - all with varying degrees of success.
