If it matters, I'm 28 years old. I'm pretty overweight but I've lost 45 pounds in the last 9 months via the exercise I mentioned above.
The meds can help, but you need to give them a chance.
From what you write, please don't take this the wrong way, but maybe try leaving ANY monitor devices you have that is not specificilly directed by your doctor for use somewhere away from you for a week. Sounds like you are reading into your body way to much, also when you exercise your hr will go up, this is normal and your body knows AND WILL go back to normal.
I hated prozac it was the drug from hell for me. Im on paxil and i like it much better but everyone is different. On prozac my heart would race and i felt aweful.
For what it's worth, I've been on 10mg for almost 2 weeks. I had a lot of side effects (jittery, racing mind, insomnia, dizzyness, nausea, loss of appetite, and now fatigue) BUT, they've been disappearing for the last several days and SO HAS MY ANXIETY. It's been quite a bit better. I sure hope it continues to be better like this. The PVCs are even happening less. I think I went two days without noticing one. Awesome. I'm cautiously optimistic.
I started on Prozac about 5 days ago and last night I started feeling pretty bad-I felt jittery and super anxious, nausea and just over all...scared. I'm a hypochondriac and I've been suffering from anxiety (now depression) for a couple of months and I switched to Prozac because several women in my family have taken it with great results.
After reading your symptoms, I feel much more at ease that this will pass. I too am taking only 10 mg, but I figure it's probably just starting to kick in.
Thanks for posting. I'm glad that I'm not alone in my struggle-not that I wish for anyone to feel this way. Still, it's a comfort that there are others out there experiencing this the same way.
