I've dealt with anxiety since I was a very young child (mostly social, but also generalized) depression came in my pre-teens. I used talk therapy to help my depression as a teen. But now as an adult in my late 20's my anxiety is crippling and my depression hit an all time low. I finally reached out for help and my doctor prescribed me 20mgs of Fluoxetine.
The first day I took it I felt high- happy, very sleepy and not a care in the world. But that was a temporary feeling (thank goodness as I didn't want to feel out of it). I have less racing thoughts, I have more energy throughout the day, I don't feel so down either. But I feel very physically anxious and this past week I woken up daily at 4am with deep pit of anxiety in my stomach. I've read it gets worse before it gets better but I really don't want to feel like I'm on the verge of a melt down anymore.
Also, I eat less. Which is fine with me. But does the anxiety take a little longer to get over?
