Prozac/ fluxo success stories ?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm day 7 of taking these. 

I was on cit but it wasn't for me. Side effects were awful. 

SUCCESSFUL & POSITIVE   stories only please to help lift my mood. It would be so appreciated. 

I feel very low today and tired would love to be cheered up by someone out there who has been on these. The DR did say it can take upto 2 weeks to see anything. 

I'm 22. And also going counselling.

    See Michelle i have not taken the mexicines but as far as i have read people's posts on this portal .... most of them had awful side effects after taking the medicines .... so its very common and you are certainly not alone and if doctor says that it will give results in 2 weeks then you should beleive in him ....however you must inform him about your side effeCTS and follow whatever he says ....

    See if he will give you a low dose benzo until the Prozac kicls in.. I take lexapro 10 mg and ativan 0.5 up to 4 a day if needed. They do help a lot.. They are addicting but I'm tired of suffering with side affects..

      Yeah got this before meds. DR said mess will help with the dizzyness so maybe you should go back to your DR. Iv seen no difference in the dizzyness yet. But iv only been on it 10 days and I have a appointment this week to maybe up my dosage. As it's driving me nuts. Good luck!! Xx

      Yes my Dr said maybe up the dose but I'm scared it will get worse as they can cause this feeling as well as treat it in some people. I have this 24/7. I'm also 8mnths pregnant. Its Ruining my life! Makes u feel crazy doesn't it. It feels like ur really drunk in a bad way.

      I was doing well on 10mg after 13 days then went down hill and spaced out feeling was back. So upped to 20mg then the sickness and headaches started. That's passed now but still got the dizzy feeling caused by anxiety levels. Today is 5weeks but was told it can take 6-12. I know how awful it feels ! X

      I hope you get better! I know the feeling it's bloody awful. I'm going back to DR Friday and will mention about the dizziness and I feel anxious now and again too. I'm on 20mg they may up it I don't know. I will keep you posted. Also you should try counselling. Iv been before and works wonders and going for walks. And nice long baths.

      I'm going to counciling tomorrowsmile the dizzy unreal feeling is anxiety I found it hard to believe at first. They think its birth trauma, I had this after my son and it came bk at 22 weeks pregnant this time. Sertline cured it last time but this time I had a reaction to it hence trying flu/prozec

      I used to feel unbalanced ( before meds ) 

      Now I feel like in a dream/ bubble. So I know exactly how you feel. It's horrible.

      It's funny how our mums are loving life and we're not lol. Must be light through the tunnel though as it goes to show. 

      I get anxious and irritable too sometimes. 

      Hope tomorrow goes well for you! I go Thursdays. Good luck xx
