I have just started ( a week ago ) on fluoxetine ( prozac) for anxiety and depression. I had been on lofepramione for a year but the side effects weren't going and they weren't doing enough for me in general. I tried one tablet of Zoloft but couldn't stomach it.
I am waking in a morning with panic coming over me and feeling nauseous and dry retching, I feel very spacey and have very little feeling one way or the other. I am also feeling more on edge anda shaky throughout the day. I know some of my feelings are probably the underlying anxiety and I know that ADs can make you feel worse before they start to make you feel any better. But I am so confused what is the real me? I haven't worked in a couple of years as anxiety, lethergy, depression and nervousness has held me back and I used to be nothing like this at all. It is so frustrating and waiting for drugs to work even more so. I refused meds for so so long until I had to do something, but I hate taking them.
I would like any feedback from people who have experience of it, how it made you feel first off and how long did it take to kick in if at all.
