    I have hit a crossroads last few days and not sure what to do now. I have now been on flouxitine dead on a month.

    ?After reading the stuff on here I thought I would stick with it after feeling initially worse than when I started. I have lost 10LB in weight, so some good has come out of it, I normally love my food, too much. I am quite a tough little devil normallysmile?, and will usually keep moving rather than curl up in a ball. But for the first time in years I find I am doing the bare minimum of everything. I get back from work and put my hot blanket on the bed and just get under the sheets, I just feel so empty at the moment and I am having what I can only describle as a small panic attack in the early hours where I think really sad thoughts and do not know where to go from here onwards.

    ?I am just getting my seconds months supply of capsules, maybe it is still early days, I might might see the doctor and sit it out a little while longer, but I can not go on like this much longer.

      Let's BOTH stick to it, John! smile I've increased from starting on 10mg to today, 2 months later, am starting on 30mg. No, I can't say I am noticing much of a difference...maybe less depressed but the last few days my anxiety has been through the roof. I hear from some that is 'common' and that sometimes it takes 4 months to really start getting the benefits... I've been a 'quitter' too often, and want to give this Prozac a good shot. Good luck to you!!

    Hi

    I'm in my 3 week now. I think I'm ok. I'm a little more anxious in the night. But definitely feeling better in the daytime. My head is cotton woolly. I feel a bit detached but I'm hoping that will pass. It's early days I'm guessing for me.

    Hi Jayne - been a while since I checked in too. 20mg day 35 and feeling better. But have a lot of other health stuff going on so truthfully haven't been thinking much about the flu. Glad to hear you feel better!
