Hi guys, not a UK resident (anymore) but some interesting discussions on here and not much local help on the form of online forums.
I was put on citalopram by my doctor before moving for major depression, it started out helping with no real side effects, but then I started to go down again, went back and the Dr increased the dose to 40mg a day. After about a month and moving and starting a new job I felt good, happy again, my wife said she had her husband back again. So I stopped taking them, stupid I know. Slowly without noticing I have beven going downhill again, my wife is about to leave me and take my kids away I am so down. My new Dr put me on fluoxetine 20mg, and after 3 weeks I feel like a mindless zombie and don't feel anything at all, am tired worse than before, my sex drive has gone from little to non existent, and almost couldn't even care about my family leaving. Back to Dr on Monday morning, he said he prefered Prozac over fluoxetine bit perhaps Prozac is not for me, or I just need to Give it longer. Never felt like this on citalopram.
Anyone else care to share thier thoughts or experiences with me?
Thanks in advance,
