Hi everyone I need some urgent advice. I am changing my medication from Sertraline to Fluoxetine as Sertraline stopped working! To be truthful after reading through your posts re Fluoxetine I am terrified of the side effects!! I take numerous medications for various illnesses, Oromorph, Nitrazepam, Diazepam, Heart meds, meds for copd and others. I suffer with terrible depression and anxiety as well as having severe back pain, degenerative disc disease and arthritis! I have severe IBS and Divercular, so all in all not a very well person! I am allergic to Paracetamol and am taking HRT again due to them starting my hot flushes and severe head pains off again. I now take Codiene to control my headaches! Ok, scared in case when I change to Duloxetine that hot flushes may come back, that headaches will return, that this drug may stop my Sleeping tablets from working, not that they are much use anyway!! Also worried about the daytime fatigue which I already have , lack of energy which I already have! Worried about nausea, people on this site seem to think this is the main adverse effect!! I have been given this new drug as I am severely suicidle. But after reading what you have all written, I'm terrified to take it now! Please advise as I have to attend a friends funeral next week and I shall be staying with my mum for approx 2 weeks! I only lost my dad to cancer 3 months ago so not very good mentally right now! Please also excuse spelling mistakes as stupid adverts keep rising up as I type on my phone 😕! Please help asap. Thank you.
