  1. I am 77 years old. I was prescribed 20mgs Prozac in 2013 to help with withdrawal from Xanax. When I had completed withdrawal in 2014 and wanted to stop Prozac psych said no - I was depressed and would have to take it for life. I had never had depression and the councilor I saw weekly for over a year agreed with me I had been miserable etc. but not depressed. I was on my own if I wanted to stop the Prozac. After a lot of research I did it very, very slowly (18 months) and changed to liquid fluxetine. I took last dose 10 months ago but still have withdrawal symptoms. I wondered if age had an
  2. angielynn78ii Over the last 10 years I’ve been on antidepressants. At different stages I was on Pristiq, Celexa, Cymbalta, Viibryd and Prozac. I was also on Lamictal and Klonopin. I am proud to say that I am currently free of all prescription medications. I took my last dose of Prozac 27 days ago. I’m surviving but I look forward to thriving. I could say so much and really want to share more but currently I just don’t have the energy or clarity. I will write again when able.
  3. Hi everyone, I started on Lovan 10mg at the end of January 2020 for irritability. My GP thought I was very on edge as I had a lot of stress from my first child, who at the time was almost two. My husband, daughter and I then moved interstate. I started to see a new GP first week of January who said after two weeks bump my dose of 10mg To 20mg. After several weeks (early March) I had no feelings at all, foggy ness and headaches and couldn’t even feel pain. Then one weekend I had a massive panic attack, one after the other, this went on for 6hrs. I have never suffered from
  4. Hello, I am desperate for help and found this website. I have been on Prozac for more years than I remember, over ten, and decided to stop last November ( so, 8 months ago). I didn't know about tapering, so I just stopped. I am feeling terrible. Constant crying, intrusive thoughts, cannot get out of bed, can barely speak sometimes. Did not feel too bad at first but now I feel consumed by it. I do not know what to do. I would ideally like to come of the drugs and be my normal self again. Is this possible? Do I need to go back on them and come back off again by tape
  5. Thanks for the ad. My Dr for the past 30 years just retired this past January. I had tried going off Prozac in 2016 but reluctantly went back on it after the prospect of a surgery came up. Last year after having a knee replacement (and still taking Prozac) I had a short bout of depression. So January of this year I see my old doctor for the final time and he had me wean off Prozac slower than the first time so that I was Prozac-free by April 1. My eldest brother and 2 of his daughters visited us briefly from North Dakota. If I’m lucky, I see family once a year. I’m the youngest of 7 and

    I took Prozac 20 mg for 5 days and have had withdrawal symptoms for past 4 months. Should I reinstate
  7. Hello everyone. I have been a silent follower of this site for many months but decided today to share my story. I was prescribed Prozac 10mg for PMD in March of 2015. My GP said I could take it everyday instead of just the 2 weeks out of the month and I agreed. I could tell a huge difference in my moods before my cycles. I went to my 6 month follow up and when asked how it was working I told him great but I would still feel a little edgy around that time of month. So he said to move it up to 20 mg since that was the usual starting dose. I also have Hoshimoto's (hypothyroid) and at this t
  8. In month 3 of my Prozac withdrawal I started experiencing this really bad smell in my nose. At first it smelled like my dogs feet, then it smelled like yeast and now I don't know what it smells like. I smell it everyday, it comes and goes throughout the day. I have been to an ENT and nothing is wrong. Has anyone else experienced this? Any help or suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Hello All, Just a brief introduction. I finished weaning off of Prozac about 1 month ago. Have been experiencing serious bouts of agitation, irritability, anger, and frustration. I DO NOT want to take medication anymore....these withdrawal symptoms, and I do believe that is what they are, are awful. Some days I feel like I am losing my mind. It is nice to know there is a place to come to where others may have experienced something similar and may have tips to help get through this. Dear God, let there be an end.
  10. Hi All - Reading and typing are difficult, so I will try my best to relay what's going on with minimal typos. At the end of January, my psychiatrist used Prozac to begin weening me off of Pristiq (50mg), as the situation calling for meds was better and I was experiencing the haziness and vision problems associated with SSRIs. Over a month, I had discontinued both drugs (last dose of Prozac was 15 days ago). It is now March 10th and all of my symptoms are at their peak, with new ones arising regularly. My worst symptoms at this point are outlined below. I have omitted anxiety from the list
