Prozac making me worse

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all

I on day 11 of taking prozac 20mg a day, I was originally put in on for constant ibs abdominal pain/nausea which was interfering with basic daily life. However now I'm much worse mentally I'm on edge all the time scared and worried. I hvnt left my house in 5 days due to just panic. Before hand I was suffering a little just with anxiety due to ibs, but this is maddness I'm so scared! Has anyone else been like this ??

    Hi, just to let you know Prozac does this to you for the first couple of weeks or so, until it kicks in. Try to stick with it as is a good drug. Ive taken it for years and I remember the first few weeks were hell on earth!! When they kicked in they were great . I remember my doctor saying I may feel worse before better. Best of luck Caroline xxxx
