Not going to lie, when I first started Prozac, about a month and a half ago, my symptoms got worse before they got better. It may be different for you but just sharing my honest opinion. Now I’m on 50mg and it seems to be helping me. Hoping the medicine helps you 🙏
That’s what I’m afraid of! Ugh, how long do you think they felt *worse*
@Anon1294 I’d just start with a low dosage until your body gets used to it being in your system because I’m very medicine sensitive so it made me feel off for a few weeks but after about a full month of consistently taking the right dosage (50mg), I feel much better than I did before. Not 100% better but better than I was.
@oneday🤍 I am the EXACT same way with medication, I’m extremely sensitive so I’m very afraid and apprehensive to start it. Idk if I can mentally handle it getting worse
I feel you. I contemplated getting off of it when I started because I was so depressed and crying all the time. But, I think you’ll feel a lot better once you’re on the medication for a bit. It’s rough at first but it’s worth it once you find the right dosage.
I don’t mean to scare you, just wanted to share my honest opinion.
No you’re not scaring me! It’s helpful because I am the same way with medication so you’re telling me what I can expect. I appreciate it!!
I’ve been on Prozac before and it was A.MA.ZING. Literally took all the thoughts away and felt 100% better. Had no side effects at all. Went up to 40mg
If you don’t mind me asking why did you go off of it? I’m afraid to need to take it for the rest of my life
@Anon1294 I stopped taking it because I got pregnant and I was doing fine so I didn’t think I needed it anymore. After four months of not being on it I relapsed and I started it again during my pregnancy but it didn’t work while I was pregnant and it wasn’t safe to go higher with her being pregnant. Then I switch to Zoloft but it didn’t work that great. I had the baby and now I’m tapering off Zoloft and switching back to Prozac currently. What’s the big deal of having to take it the rest of your life? Some people just need medicine and that’s OK.
Hey girl I would like to connect with you. I am also a mom with pocd and you had commented on a previous post that you would be interested in talking if I needed. I feel like I could really benefit from speaking to a fellow momma that knows how I’m feeling 🥺
I have a tik tok, I have messaged another momma about this before on there.
@Anon1294 What’s your tik tok? I will add you!
I just sent you a request!
