i’ve been on fluxotine for 2 weeks and feel like coming off

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi everyone. I started some fluxotine 2 weeks ago for anxiety after a year or so of being on them briefly. I was trying to do my best without them. keeping fit helps and trying to be sensible, Ie not drinking etc but with anxiety and being in social situations i always found that difficult! That mixed with the frustration of a number of hernias that affect doing a physical job and also effects my mental health aswell! I felt like i needed a push in the right direction, To start enjoying stuff a bit more, help and confidence with starting new job and making the most of life. anyway its been 2 weeks and most days i felt like coming off. Not many sides affects apart from my hiatus hernia which has always been a problem with these, really Low mood super tired and no motivation . should i carry on? are these strong enough?

    they will work, but need a lot of time, be patient. 2 weeks are very early. MY side effects were terrible and last for 4 month. The journey on fluoxetine is very up and down until you body levels up. I am on my 6 month and start to feel much more happier 😃 Please dont give up and just keep going no matter how hard or disheartening it could feel, you will get there
