Hi all, I have been on prozac for over 10 weeks now and the side effects have only recently started to subside. The thing that hasn't subsided though is this feeling of depersonalisation. I don't feel like the same person anymore and its freaking me out. My friends and Family have commented on how different I am acting. I seem very hyperactive and find myself thinking different thoughts to what I have in the past. If alcohol is involved then it gets even worse. I get very emotional and do not feel in control of my actions at all.
This reason alone makes me want to stop taking this medication. I don't want a pill to change me as a person and I really feel like thats what its doing. I also cannot leave the house anymore because of crippling social anxiety and general anxiety. I was battling through it a few months back and was doing healthy things and could even leave the house on my own. Now it seems like a distant memory.
In summary I just don't feel myself at all and I do not like it. Has anyone else experienced this with this or similar medications? And what actions did you take against it? Its scaring me how much I have changed as a person since starting this medication and its scaring me. Any help would be appreciated.
