My husband started prozac 10mg for five days then upped to 20 mg for six weeks. After than he did 30mg for five days and is has been on 40mg for the past week.
So that's nine weeks and change on prozac.
In the first 10 days he seemed not be affected either way but then he proceeded to sleep something like 14-16 hours a day. Brain fog, no energy, night sweats. A definite spike in anxiety and depression. Frequent panic attacks (he used to get them anyway, but not as much). Before his dose was upped to 30 ad 40 I thought maybe, just maybe, something was starting to happen. He started to seem more even.
Now I am seeing the same really small changes that are giving me a little bit of hope. In these past couple of days he went for walks (he hadn't managed to leave the house). He wants us to check out a gym together. A couple of days ago he said that when he woke up he felt good, but that faded as fast as it appeared.
What did recovery look like for you? Was it small things like this? I've read this forums and relied on them and I know it can take so very long. But I'd love it if people who eventually went in remission and have been on prozac can look at this and tell me if improvement looked anything like this.
