Eva: struggling after 20+ years Prozac and now without.


Recommended Posts

Hi Alto I started at 10 mg. and stayed on that dose for 4 weeks. It lessened the panic and anxiety a little but not enough and i stil have the nightly jerking and waves of panic if `i don't take flurazepam for the night. I upped the prozac to 15 mg. five days ago, it made the anxiety flare up again for the first few days but today I felt better. I will stay on the 15 mg. for at least another 4 weeks, to see what happens. In the meantime I will try a slow taper of the flurazepam, while staying in contact witj my GP and my psychotherapist.

I am sad to be on meds again, after a whole yaer without any meds at all... but I felt it was the lesser of two evils, the other evil being having to go to a psych ward and not being able to take care of my family anymore.
