    Hi Clay, 

    What you are describing are typical side effects of starting Prozac. Hold on hon they will get better. Quite often the anxiety and depression can get worse when you first start with this med. it takes time for Prozac to settle in your system so try to be patient. I know that's easier said than done. Chat here, ask questions. We are here for support.

    Take care

      Thank you. Laurie its really hard for people who arent going through the same to understand you.  I have 3 kids and need to be at my best for them.

      I understand completely. I'm sorry to say this but it usually takes 4-6 weeks to start seeing improvement. That's seems to be the norm but it may be different for you. You will get better and be able to enjoy life and your family. 

      You are not alone in what you are feeling. This has been my second time on Prozac. I never had side effects the first time but this time I had it all. Heightened depression, anxiety, nausea, insomnia, exhaustion, the shakes etc.  I started to feel improvement around my fourth week. I began feeling better in the evenings. Then it improved slowly from there. I'm around 24 weeks now and feel good. I still have the occasional bad day but it passes. 

      Please come here with any concerns, questions, fears, upsets or to vent. I will check in here on you everyday. You will get through this.

    I’m right there with ya clay. And I use to be on Prozac! This is my start to week 3 and I’m even more anxious, heart pounding, stomach, no appetite , all of it. And I’ve im super sleepy. Don’t even know if it’s normal but I am.

      Hi clay. It’s been touch and go. That feeling of unsafeness and being scared to be alone all day has subsided a little But I started my second Meds (doxepin) ans it helps me sleep and helps with my panic and stabilizes my mood thank for. But im left feeling like old a total zombie and so tired. I can barely stand too long. (I also have adrenal failure). But the sleepy ness should go away. So all in All I guess here’s a positive difference but it’s only 3rd week of Prozac and 2 day doxepin. I think I have a ways to go as I know prozac is very  hard on my body in the beginning. 

      HOw are you doing??

      Being on week 2 I still feel anxiety and depressed. Im also taking ativan throughout the day to calm me and at night to help me sleep. So I ve heard of the harsh side effects. But lets give it time.

      Hi Clay, I took clonazepam for 3 months to help me cope, then weened myself off. You and Tina are going to get through this and come out the other side feeling good. I hope you both have a better day tomorrow. 

      Big hugs
