Week 5 on Fluoxetine

Edited , 5 users are following.

I'm in the middle of my 5th week on flu and the anxiety is still pretty high. I keep telling myself its the med trying to work. I want this med to work so bad as 3 others did not.

    I am currently on week 4 of prozac. Starting to lose hope a little bit as well. My anxiety has gotten better but depression has gotten worse. I think it's still in the initial phase of it all so I have some hope of it getting better as that is what everyone has told me!
