I stopped taking 40mg Fluoxetine 7 weeks ago after being on them for over 2 years. I thought they had stopped working and I thought i'd give it a try coming off them.
Took advice from Dr ( although she was wary of me coming off them I have to say..) and tapered over a few weeks.
Now feel utterly horrific...really very low, no interest in anything, very irritated, weepy, not washing as much, wanting to stay in bed...thoughts of not wanting to be here anymore, feel useless and just a burden to everyone despite my hubby, daughter and extended family being fantastic.
Spoke with Dr today and she has prescribed 20mg, alongside Amitryptiline 30mg which has been helping for the past 7 weeks with sleep as was not sleeping at all, and cocodomol as I also have Fibromyalgia along with the depression and anxiety.
I guess what i'm asking is...has anyone been in a similar situation and how long should it take to get back into my system and should it help me to feel better?
Any advice would be really appreciated...a bit desperate...☹
