Chronic Fatigue - Prozac


Recommended Posts

I started Prozac in July of last year and haven't been the same since. Within a week I found myself constantly tired. It has gotten worse and worse since then. Just a few months ago, on my good days I could get 4 hours out of me before I needed to rest.. now i'm lucky if I get 2. I'm almost completely bedridden. It feels like my whole body and brain are tired. This drug is horrible and now I feel this will never leave.

June 2018-January 2019: .5mg-1mg Ativan (Benzo)

2010-June 2021: Marvelon (Birth Control) 

September 2018-December 2021: Prozac (SSRI) Reinstated 1mg April 21st 2019 , up-dosed to .32ml June 19, 2019 & started taper in October 2019. Finished taper successfully December 31, 2021.

I experienced very weak muscles/ligaments when taking Prozac.  I can remember that when walking along a beach I had great difficulty with my hips as I walked.  It felt like you do in later pregnancy when you "waddle", but this was prior to becoming pregnant the first time.
