In the past month I began with my dr to decrease venalfaxine and add prozac because the venlafaxine stopped working. I became depressed while on it and felt I neeed ssomething elsse. Since the beggining of may I've gone from 225 mgs venlafaxine to 75 mgs....while titrating up to 30 mgs prozac. I realize this mixed titrating could wreak havoc. the goal was to get onto prozac in the hopes it would be effective whereas venlafaxine wasn't
But through this time I've been experiencing more restlessness, especially in the late afternoon and a complete shutdown of appetite. I notice I'm still kind of depressed as well and unable to derive pleasure or joy from anything or anyone. These feelings of restlessness have gotten worse since the switchover started.
Has anyone experienced restlessness, anxiety, loss of appetite from starting prozac? Has anyone experienced this from lowering venlafaxine? I'm wondering what the root cause of this is. Or is it both? Is it temorary. Perhaps I need more prozac?
Could the concurrent reduction of venlafaxine and the addition of prozac combined be causing all this? Perssonal relatable experience a plus to this. Thank you all.
