Don't quit abruptly -- talk to your psychiatrist. This is perhaps the most stimulating antidepressant outside of taking speed for them, which has been used. Many people are made anxious by this drug, and anxious people have a particularly hard time on it. Now, it also works for many people, but if this side effect continues it's probably not the right med for you.
Yeah. Can't do it anymore. Only been on it a fortnight but had the extreme rash, getting very weepy and anxiety through the roof.
I'm doing the every other day wean off thing since can't split these with them being sustained release.
I'm so rock bottom now. I need help and I don't know what to do anymore.
I've tried herbal, been to counseling and CBT. Only the meds help.
Have tried almost all of them and don't know where to turn anymore.
Swethering as whether to retry some I've been on before incase side effects change.
Fluoxetine, Trazodone or Venlafaxine ?
Sure my Doc will divorce me soon.
Stay on your meds,Talk to dr. about upping the dose it takes time to start feeling the drug but stay with it till you talk to your doctor. And if its been a long time on it, you might want to try a different one.my dose is 40 mg. of Prozac or fluoxetine,+ bupropion300mg.once a day. Anxiety is just an emotion (I tell myself)it wont hurt you just makes you feel, like you gonna loose it. allow yourself to feel it, and say it is just a feeling it will go away and I found out that if you have anxiety at night and trouble sleeping, I take 10mg of melatonin and that helps a lot with anxiety. Hang in there it will get better, Kathy
