taken off Prozac 60mg cold turkey and put on Zoloft 100mg

Posted , 2 users are following.

My medicine change happened about a month ago.  Dr switched me to Zoloft and took Prozac away immediately.  I was fine the first week and crashed after that.  Severe anxiety, obessesive thoughts about all my physical symptoms.  Worry, worry, worry. I wake up every morning and feel like I can't face the day.  Dr. put me back on Prozac 20mg. almost a week ago.  I take Xanax XR 1mg twice a day but I can't tell that I am taking anything for anxiety right now.  No appetite and my body just tingles.  I hate feeling like this. I haven't felt this bad in probably over 10 years.  Anybody ever go through this before.  Also I went through a move about a year ago from a large city to a small town.  It's been tough.

    I am no expert, but, I think that maybe he should have weaned you off the Prozac. How much were you taking?

      Trying to get my anxiety/depression under control. I wasn't expecting him to change my antidepressant again. Very anxious about getting off Xanax XR. They won't prescribe benzo's where I go. I am going to taper off of it.
