Hi I'm new to this group but not new to depression and anxiety.
I have had depression most of my adult life and have had some success with fluoxetine. I have been on the same dose 20mg on and off for years in combination with other methods such as meditation, massage aromatherpy and talking therapies. I have always had good coping strategies and have managed to live with my depression. However, the past couple of years have been very bad due to an incease in anxiety and a life long chronic illness, which causes constant pain. My attempts to try other ani-depressants have been unsuccessful leaving me with suicidal thoughts or feeling like a total zombie.
My gp suggested I increase the prozac dose to 40mg daily and to stick with it for a month to give it time to work. I have experienced really bad headaches, increased apathy and irritability, bouts of anger and increased dark thoughts about myself. It's only been two weeks.
Has anyone else felt worse on an increased dose of prozac?
