i had been on it for about 4 years but in the last year my headaches had gotten horrible , i would forget everything and have this burning sensation on my skin so in this last year i decided to take the 10mg dose but in the last month i took myself off but in the last couple of weeks the anxiety attacks and depression had become serious..so i went back to doctor and started seeing a therapist but doctor told me to take prozac now but i dont like the feeling of my head having nonstop racing thoughts  that have no purpose, insomnia , restlessness , anxiety//and ive only taken it for 4 days ...im not taking it anymore the feeling is awful..

    Hello there , obviously I don't know your full history but I can only go by my experience , personally I wouldn't take Prozac again , I was on it a month and I thought I was cracking up and was off work for 3 weeks with Flu like symptoms , I was like a zombie , so rightly or wrongly came off them 'cold turkey ' went bk to Docs a few days later where I had a massive lecture but I didn't care as I was feeling better even with withdrawals . I was then prescribed Sertraline and if you read the reviews on this site it is very positive , feel only after a week much better . Like I said I'm no Doc but can only give you my personal experience . Hope this helps , take care x

      Much better , still getting the odd panic attack but overall feel fit and well after being struck with the Flu/ Prozac effects . I've joined a yoga class also . Hope things work out positive also
