Hi

Today is my 5th day taking prozac and I don't feel anything, is this normal, I have had anxiety and feeling very low but it's the same as any other day, also I did not sleep well last night and I usually don't have sleeping problems, prozac induced? Other than that I don't feel anything.

    It can take 2 too many weeks to kick in and numb your brains feelings. Side effects, anxiety etc my increase til then. If it doesn't work for you, educte yourself on SSRI's. Ann Blake-Tracy has alot of year's experience with them your doctor's won't tell you.

      Ann Blake-Tracy and fluoxetine should be illegal on Facebook has a great tapering protocol and natural alternative methods for deal with anxiety-panic vs SSRI's. Slow tapering very important. 3-5% every 2-4 weeks or til stable. Never cold turkey or large amounts.

      Take care and educate the truth on SSRI's the doctors won't tell you.

      That's what there trained by big pharma to keep you coming back. Psychiatrists I've had for over 20 year's and there all the same. I do not trust at all. Same applies with benzo's, SSRI's, opioids. Knowledge is power especially with psych Med's never take until you know. Best experiences are from others who have been there and successfully tapered off.
