I took Prozac for 20 plus years. Can you take it in the morning? It did that to me too. I know that isnt much help but i know what thar is like. I started taking mine in the morning bc i found it activating but def talk to your psych.
thank you , unfortunately i already do take it in the morning :(
Aww. Thats rough. I know how it goes. I have had to take meds to help me sleep bc of my anxiety meds🤦🏻♀️. Its frustrating.
Give it a few more weeks. Fluoxetine does tend to be one of the more stimulating SSRIs and it’s a common side effect. Usually this settles down in a few weeks but possibly have it reviewed after 6 weeks if no improvement. See what doctor suggests
So, I stopped my fluoxitine after ten days. It made my OCD wayyyyyy worse, I was super super afraid, I had tremors, I sweat so bad my phone didn't recognize my fingerprint. It was awful. I know there's a period of time where I need to adjust but honestly since I've stopped it, I feel so so much better. I know that's not the answer for everyone and always talk to your MD, but it could be that ssri isn't the one for you. Gene Site (or sight spelling? Just Google) can do a blood test that will actually tell you which medication you'll tolerate best. They also do it with ADHD meds. Might be something to look into if you don't want to keep waiting to see if prozac works or just to know so you're not trying a ton of different meds before finding one that works for your body.
I said blood test - it's actually a cheek swab
Is this available in the UK? I stopped fluoxetine for the same reasons and I’m terrified to try a new one
@cmd88 I'm not sure?

I'd email them and ask. If not, they might know which way to direct you?
