Hi all.  I have posted before, but I have some symptoms which I wonder are due to my changes in drugs.  I came off Cipralex as it no longer seemed to be working for me, and my doctor changed me to Fluoxetine and Half Beta Prograne for high blood pressure and anxiety.  Well, I'm not depressed!!  But I have a feeling of impending doom all the time, I am so disassociated with everything, I get chills and my hands become freezing.  Because of this weird feeling that something awful is around the corner, I am just not able to relax and enjoy life.  Does anyone have similar symptoms with similar drugs?

    Yes Nannoo they can be common side effects and are really terrible when you are going though them, my Doc gave me a mild sedative which helped take the edge of the symptoms and allowed me to function through the day. Let your Doc know what is going on and ask for help. much love as I know this is very tough

      i too wake up shaky and feeling apprehensive.  but it's getting better each day.  it's been about 12 weeks now.  i'm not waking up at 4am feeling anxiety.  i sleep much better.  do you have a behavioral psychologist you're working with too?  I know i needed more than medication to get me to where i want to be.

    Hi Nannoo

    Has the great feeling lasted for you? Do you feel like you have turned a corner now? How many days have you been taking Fluoxetine? Thanks Sally
