So, you are your own advocate. You know yourself best. Let me ask you this though. How is your anxiety and/or ocd and or depression since taking the medication? That's important to evaluate because any time we take medication, there is a trade off of good with bad. If our mental health disorders are on track and we are managing well with that, then the trade off is side effects of the medication. And you aren't even sure either of those two things are related. Now, I'm not sure about the combination of medications you are on. We aren't doctors and shouldn't second guess your medical team treating you. So YOU have a conversation about why you are on both and if weaning off one or taking down the dose on two is a trial worth undertaking. If your anxiety or other mental health issues spike, you go back on. If not, you are good to discontinue. Don't forget the other things you can do for mental health as well such as seeing a therapist and working through things with them, finding coping strategies, triggers, etc. Exercise plays a role in feeling our best mentally, meditation, yoga, finding peace, etc. good luck
Are you saying you're on both Luvox and Prozac at the same time? I'm sure there are folks who can handle such a combination, and if you've tried a lot of things and they didn't work, docs have to try unusual things. But taking two ssris at the same time isn't usually done. It raises a risk of something called serotonin syndrome, and you don't want that. You say you've only been on meds for a year and a half, which would suggest you're not someone who has exhausted a lot of different things yet. For example, how bad was your problem before you went on meds in the first place? Are you in therapy? Have you tried other medications? Are you seeing a psychiatrist or a general doc -- the latter don't get a lot of training in this stuff. Some are great, but most aren't -- frankly, most psychiatrists aren't that great at it, either, but at least it is all that they do so they do it a lot. I think it's time for a heart to heart with your practitioner.
just wanted to check in and see how all of this is going.
