prozac has ruined my life

I have been on prozac for the last two and a half years and it has ruined my life. Since taking prozac I have lost my job, my home, my friends and family and almost my children. I also dropped out of uni. ## you need to be more specific... i was on zoloft for twelve years and one day it just flipped on me and I had severe depression to where I couldn't even get out of bed i just wanted to throw the sheets over my head and not move... since then I changed to prosac and it has been a miracle drug for me... i work, i have a three year old i am very productive in society... so everybody's different maybe you should try a more recently made anti-depressant... perhaps prozac is not for you. Also check into ambilify... I cant take it i had a severe reaction to it... but some people say...

Prozac Nation? Are we addicted to Antidepressants?
4 Replies RSS
We live in a nation where drugs are created for every conceivable human feeling. Do you ever wonder if these feelings are normal and not meant to be drugged away? What if your depression and anxiety were you body's natural way of telling you something is going on with you, that you need to pay attention to something inside of you? Seriously, how else would our mind and body alert us if something is wrong, if not through our depression and anxiety? Are we then actually harming ourselves by medicating away our body's natural reaction to stress? I like to hear your thoughts on why we should or shouldn't stop taking drugs. ## You are so correct with this statement. Our bodies are telling us it isnt working right, but most doctors are too quick with the ink pen to try to find the...

Prozac and Zoloft for clinical depression
Post a Reply
Hey, I'm going through clinical depression... Depression struck me four years ago. I realized something wasn't right and I forced my parents to take me to a doc. My diagnosis was a herculean task. It took almost 6 months of medicine trial and counseling and then came to a conclusion that I had OCD and depression. Thereafter, the doc prescribed me many different types of medicines and one medicine made me feel slightly better but increased my weight by about 25 kilos... So he tried one more medicine and I'm in the worst phase again... I'm a singer and I make people laugh and entertain them, but nobody can even guess what I'm going through.

prozac ruined my life,
1 Reply RSS
I have always been an anxious person (worrying too much, scared, etc) but last year some events made my anxiety worse. I was prescribed prozac for it and at the begining it was good: no anxiety anymore. After 7 months I decided I didn't want to take it anymore so I tappered to 0. I felt ok for about 3 months after stopping and then the anxiety came back with a revenge; this time I had several new symptoms like: chest pain, insomnia, ocd thoughts, panic attacks, depressiive feelings. My doctor told me to get on prozac again and so I did. The anxiety has gone a bit but now I have a lot of side effects that I had not experience in my first round of prozac. Emotional numbness, zero libido, nausea, etc. I just want to come back the state of mind that I had before meds, in the long term p...

Prozac and weight gain
3 Replies RSS
My Dr. just put me on Prozac 40mg. Never had it before. But I'm one who suffers from severe depression, mood swings, ect. When I'm depressed I don't eat, maybe for days. Will Prozac help turn it around? ## Unfortunately, no! Prozac actually may cause more weight loss, if you're under weight. It's prone to doing that, rather than causing weight gain. It may also cause dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. If you really want something that may help with appetite, you may do better with a different SSRI, such as Zoloft. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Don't drink with it. I did and my hubby said that I have a split personality when I do. But when I don't drink...It's the best meds I've ever taken. It really works. Just please don't drink wh...

prozac made me super angry
Post a Reply
I was on Prozac to treat depression for about 10 months. The first weeks I felt euphoric. It seemed like all the problems magically disappeared and life was amazing again. I met somebody and we started dating. Then a few month later, I found myself getting angry with everything and everyone for little things, things that normally would make me shrug. Then the aggression (not physical by any means) started affecting my relationship. But still, I could not figure out what it was. I thought - back then - then there was nothing wrong with me and I had the reasons to act to certain situations the was I did. My relationship ended. I was not happy but I was not super upset either, although I knew that he was mr right. I went on a long vacation and the very first day I flushed all the remaining pi

Im on both methadone and prozac,the problem i am having are awful jerks or spasms when i take them as prescribed.I have tried several other antidepressants on methadone but still have spasms or violent jerks.When i tell the doctors they dont have an answer,Help! ## Come on Verwon,i need some info on the problem of spazms or jerks while on methdone and antidepressants. Help ## Unfortunately, while it is a common problem reported by many people, I really don't have any answers as to why this happens. It's been reported with many antidepressants and Methadone. It may be due to the fact that some of the antidepressants raise the levels of Methadone in the body. What dosage do you take? You might want to try asking your doctor about making a slight adjustment, so you take a little le...

Prozac ruined my life

I was on Prozac (fluoxetine) for about 8-9 years starting when I was about 14 years old. I'm 23 now and for about the last two-three years I started getting weird side effects and feelings that I never had before. I would feel spaced out, disoriented, out of body, dizzy, angry, light/visual disturbances and really wishhy washy.. like bi polar feelings and suicidal feelings. I had never had these ever before. I was on the Prozac for severe anxiety and panic attacks. I never had depression or bi polar feeling ever in my life. And I always would get dizzy spells and just feel SOOO spaced out and out of body literally so freaking weird. So when these symptoms started happening I went to numerous docs and they all found nothing wrong physically. Blood tests, ..check up all normal. So I d...

WHAT DOES A GENERIC prozac 20mg and a 10 mg look like. I want to find the green capusles ## As a generic, there are far too many on the market for me to be able to list all the possible markings and descriptions for you. There are even quite a lot if I just narrow it down to green, or ones that can be taken for being green. Do you have any other information on it, such as the manufacturer name? ## It says E92 it is different than any I've gotten before

Prozac Success Story
Post a Reply
I don’t find a lot of positive stories about antidepressants, or I find stories where people are taking the antidepressant the wrong way... I wanted to share my experience. A positive one. I’ve had generalized anxiety disorder, SEVERE OCD, and panic disorder for as long as I can remember. My first memory of having an episode was when I was 4 years old at my kindergarten interview. I feel as though I was born with the illnesses mentioned above, right from the womb. When I was a child I was extremely anxious, had bad separation anxiety from my parents and had extreme OCD, I was just a kid and thought that the way I was feeling is how all kids felt, I didn’t realize that I was different. This went on, and got even worse in middle school. I began developing trichtilomania ...

Prozac ruined me
2 Replies RSS
Back in November of 2016 I made the decision to seek help in dealing with some depression and anger issues that I had been suffering with for a very long time. I called my health care provider (KP) and they had me talk to a general practice doctor, saying that I needed a referral in order to see anyone in their behavioral health department. I wasn't sure what a regular doctor was going to do for me, but I did as I was told. The day that I saw this person would end up being the beginning of some of the worst days of my adult life. This doctor listened to me for all of about 10 minutes and then prescribed Prozac for me. I had heard of it before, and was willing to try anything, so with little information on what I was getting myself into, I proceeded to follow Doctor's orders and ...

prozac homicidal ideations
1 Reply RSS
I took Prozac a year ago as I had been misdiagnosed as major depression, when in actuality I have Bipolar 1 disorder. At the time I had checked into a psychiatric clinic because I was having a Manic episode I hadn't slept in 4 weeks, maybe one hour a night if that, racing thoughts, Obsessive thoughts, talking quite fast, I was also feeling suicidal. So he put me on 20mg of Prozac, I took the SSRI for about 6 days. I started to have horrible thoughts of murdering my mother, and my dog, the neighbors, and killing myself, and there was a sense of urgency in it without any logic. I have learned that it is called Homicidal akethsia, I did not act upon these psychotic urges because I knew they were not right, I am a deeply sensitive person and it has affected me greatly. I would like to t...

I was on 10mg and just went up to 20mg 5 days ago. My jaw hurts, sinuses are blocked and my mouth feels sore like I ate too much salt. I also feel foggy and off. Is this normal? How long will this last? ## I just got on prozac 20mg. 4th day today i have all the same symptoms as you besides the jaw. its all normal yoga girl. The weird things is that its hard to get mad. That's a plus i guess. I hear that the foggy feeling get weaker as time. no worrys ## Yes, I can assure you both that such side effects only last for a few weeks, it was about 3 weeks for me, whenever I adjusted my dosage. They do improve and eventually go away completely. If they don't, then it might not be the right medication for you. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and wei...

Hi there, i started fluoxetine 3days ago but am already feeling side effects and want to stop. Will the withdrawals still occur even after only taking them for 3days? I was prescribed 20mg for post natal depression and anxiety. I dont think i want to be on then as want to try and perservere with brwast feeding which ive been told i have to stop as soon as im on them. I dont know what to do. ## In 2002 I didn't think i'd be able to breastfed because I took SSRI. However, a major Chicago pediatric practice said it was fine to nurse and take Zoloft, so I did, to give baby a good start. Supplemented with 2 bottles Enfamil a day, just in case. Also reduced Zoloft to 100mg instead of 150mg. on my own initiative, enough to get by, I thought. Had post partum depression, and later terrib...

Prozac and Past Amphetamine Use associated with ADHD
Post a Reply
Okay I had ADHD as a child and was prescribed Dextroamphetamine 5mg I would take 3 pills in the morning and 2 in the Afternoon. Followed by Catapress to sleep in the evening. Leading up into early adult hood I was still using and become addicted to Dextroamphetamine. Years of Abuse of this Drug resulted in Depression and Drug induced psychosis. I believe the use of this drug damage receptors in the brain. I do not take amphetamine anymore but I have been prescribed prozac I have been taking 20mg daily now for 4 months and my depression is near non existent. I can only take prozac in the morning as it gives me a very large energy boost, if I was too take it at night I would not sleep. If I become burnt out or unable to relax I am given a short term dose of Tamaze to use when needed only on

Prozac having bad side effects
7 Replies RSS
I started Prozac about 4 weeks ago. I had started having really bad panic attacks and bad anxiety so I went to the doctors and he put me on this. Since I've been taking this medicine it has helped with the attacks but it's made me feel so weird and like I'm not alive. My body knows what it's doing but my mind isn't all there. I forget tasks very easily and start to forget stuff sometimes. My mind is constantly in a battle with itself. I just always ask myself, is this ever going to end? Is this going to get better? I don't know what else to do. Can someone please tell me if this is going to stop? Sometimes I just go to sleep early at night hoping things will be better in the morning but nothing ever changes. I don't have thoughts of suicide at all but I just ...
