    Hi Julie ... you don’t say what dose of Prozac your on???  10/12 weeks can be the norm to make things start to settle down, I’m on 60 mg and 9 months in to Prozac.. and Iv not sleeped proper for over two years now, and I so want to have a good nite sleep.... our minds are very powerful things, as your well aware as you say your brain is having these set backs? 

    Let’s hope things start to settle down for you very soon 🤗x

    Hi Julie, I’m on week 11 or 12, same thoughts here.  I thought I was doing better and then I have bad anxiety and negative thinking again.  I hope it gets better for us soon.

      Hi Julie,

      It took 12 weeks for the anxiety to go down.  The Dr just upped mine to 60 last week, I’m shaky and depressed off and on, hopefully it will go away soon.

      It’s definitely off and on for a long time.  That is good that you are having some positive moments.  Hang in there, it takes a lot of time unfortunately.
