Fluoxetine increase

Posted , 4 users are following.

I increased my fluoxetine to 40 mg over 2 weeks ago, I was fine for the first 10 days but now my anxiety is horrendous! Shaky, nauseous, restless and not sleeping! Has anyone else had this and it's settled down or do you think 40mg is too much for me?

    Hi i was started on 30 and then increased up to 60 but it didntseem to make much differance or I dont think so but it effects people differntly. Ive decided to come off it and so far I feel ok but from what i can gather this will probably change.
