    Hi

    Keep on going you will much feel worse before you feel better.

    Fluxetine are slow release so it differs from person to person the time it takes them to feel better.

    I am on 60mg and can totally relate to this.

    Hope you ok x

    Dear Jane.

    I’m 4.5 weeks in and my anxiety is sky high. I’ll encourage you to join the two Facebook groups regarding this medicine. A LOT of good people are in there - me included :-)
