after numerous attempts at different anti-d's + years upon years of depression, my doctor prescribed me fluoxetine 20mg.
for the first 1-2 weeks i felt ok, not happy just ok(which is great for me) i'm in my 3rd/4th week of taking them and well what can i say? i'm all over the place. i actually feel worse now than ever
I have no interest or motivaion what so ever in doing anything. i struggle to get up every morning with my son and do day to day things. i've never felt so exhausted in all my life! i can't sleep at night because i have crazy thoughts in my head. and get scared to sleep because of the crazy dreams i have.
I've experienced hair loss, major loss of appetite(lost 1st), nausea, stomach pains, mega heartburn, tiredness(even though i can't sleep!), i had a menstrual bleed mid cycle. and shakes, so bad that people notice. my anxiety and paranoia is 100x worse and i've had more thoughts about dying.
So were do i go from here, are all these side effects from fluo. or have i got something seriously wrong with me? I've tried about 5 different types of anti depressants and numerous attempts at counselling with nothing helping me. i am so lost right now and so fed up of this i just don't know what to do.
My son and husband are being neglected too and i hate it.
an ideas anyone?
