I was diagnosed with depression and put on 10mg of Prozac four days ago. I've never been treated for depression before, though I suspect I should have been.
I started meditating multiple times a day and focusing on clearer thinking to counter the anxiety I feel in addition to the depression. In the past few days I've noticed I have slight interest in doing normal things like cooking and cleaning, but the interest is limited. I am sleeping a little better each night but I am still fatigued mid-day. I went to the gym this morning for an hour, walked my dog a little later and just like the past two days right at mid-day I had this overwhelming need to sleep so I took a nap for about an hour. Is that the depression or am I just healing from two weeks of severe anxiety and panic attacks? I worry the napping might be a bad depressive state and don't want to fuel it if I shouldn't.
How will I know when the prozac is working or when it's time to increase the dose? My doctor is scheduled to see me next week. I am concerned my current dose is too low. Can anyone provide insight to what I'm experiencing and what to expect?
