Reassurance please upped to 60mg

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi all 3 weeks ago I upped my Prozac to 60mg after being on 40 for a good five years I had stupidly missed a lot of dozes well Withdrawal crept up on me like never before !! I started taking the 40mg religiously for 5 weeks then with docs advice upped to 60mg 3 weeks ago but I don’t know if it’s helping I still feel disconnected and very tired still suffering with anxiety and no motivation just need some reassurance that this is how it’s meant to be I suppose ! I’ve been on fluoxetine on and off for 12 years so I know it works but I’m afraid that I won’t be better and that they are never going to work 😢 they said I can try a different antidepressant but that would mean weaning all the way down slowly and then being off them altogether for a week or two the thought of that scares me to death ! Xx

    I’m on 60, it takes a while.  At least 6 weeks before I saw a benefit.  It’s been a little over 6 weeks for me.
