I've posted on here before but decided to update.
Basically, I've been on a roller coaster with Fluoxetine and decided to taper off it starting October. I was originally on 20mg for 8 months, then increased to 40mg for 3 months (which resulted in really bad panic attacks because my body couldn't handle it), back down to 20mg again, and then 10mg for 1 month. So overall, I was on Fluoxetine for 1 whole year.
But now I'm having really bad trouble withdrawing from it. I haven't taken it since October and I'm experiencing all crazy physical symptoms like brain zaps, hot flashes, tremors, sweating, insomnia, head pressure, etc. It's been off and on. Last week I was completely fine but now the withdrawals have hit me once again.
I'm frustrated and very very scared because I don't know what to do. I thought Fluoxetine was the easiest to get off of. I don't know when the withdrawals will end but I don't want to go back on the drug either. I need help.
