I got myself into quite a stressful situation yesterday and was forced to take a second Fluoxetine 20mg. It seemed to calm me down a bit but I'm not sure whether to take my daily Fluoxetine today?

It'll mean I would have taken 60mg in 2 days...should I skip this dose or take it as normal?

    Good morning Ghost

    This seems to be becoming a habit for you :shock: didn't you do the same last weekend?

    Okay, so what should you do today? Perhaps take it a bit later than you normally do?

    More importantly though - you need to have a chat with your doctor and let him/her know that this is happening on a regular basis.

    Is there anyway you can prevent yourself from getting into these stressful situations? Or something else you can do to help calm the situation down rather than taking another Flouxetine? Correct me if I'm wrong hun but these tablets aren't designed are they to provide an almost instant calming effect?

    Maybe your doctor could prescribe you something that you can take when feeling so stressed that is prescribed with that purpose in mind.

    You are doing really well ghost and you haven't got to allow these little setbacks to upset you. It's a case of 3 steps forward, 1 step back, but you will get there eventually.

    Again, as last week, all I can really suggest is that you ring NHS Direct 0845 4647 and ask their advice about what to do with todays dose.

    And hey! Don't do it again LOL :magic: :yikes: :magic:

    love 'n' hugs

    Melbi, no this is the first time - I was just enquiring the last time.

    Tomorrow was going great until I got myself into an awkward family situation.

    Not going there! I make too many typos myself to comment on others :roll:

    I'm feeling restless today - want to do something but haven't a clue what!

    It's my sister's birthday today and she's having a small party here at the house, my girlfriend is coming up as well as my cousins - I panicked yesterday as one cousin said something that I was forced to tell my sister (as she was fighting with her bf).

    I would invite you Melbi but I've no address to send an invitation to :wink:
