    Hello Julie, how long have you been on Prozac? I had crazy anxiety in the first few weeks, and then it pretty much disappeared. Prozac is an amazing drug but unfortunately it takes a while to work. Just remember these feelings will pass. My doctor gave me additional meds to get through the anxiety. Maybe ask yours for some?

    We're all here to help and listen.

    Hi Julie,

    Totally get it. I had that (and still do a little). It’s totslly normal. How long have you been on Prozac? It’s one of the safest and best SSRIs so give it time. It causes all the crap in the beginning. Takes like 2 months to work. I still struggle daily I’m on 5th it 6th week. 

    We’re here for you.
