I was on prozac for 4 years and it made me have no anxiety issues when I was on it, I stopped it because when I was on it I noticed I had sexual difficulties with a woman, but when I was off it the severe anxiety returned, I then tried nearly every other ssri over the last few years but they all caused sexual troubles, the only other two anti depressants I really tried before I quit after a few weeks because of the sexual side effects were lexapro and venlafaxine, I was on lexapro for roughly a year and even though it helped my anxiety slightly it didn't help it anywhere near as much as prozac. The only other anti depressant I took for longer than a few weeks was venlafaxine which I took for 2 months and felt terrible the entire time I took it. The last 2 years I haven't been taking anything to help this anxiety and depression and it is getting to the point I am so anxious I can't leave the house and am getting so depressed I feel suicidal. The idea of going back on prozac and not having mental health problems does sound very appealing, but on the other hand I don't want sexual side effects? Another thing that worries me about prozac is if I get a job while I am on it its as if I will have to take it forever because if I quit the prozac the mental health problems return and are just unbearable. It also worries me that I have heard ssri anti depressant's damage the brain if taking for a very long time?
