All I can really do is echo what has already been said. The side effects from the Fluoxetine may just be temporary and last a couple of weeks. If they persist longer than that I would see your doctor again and discuss it with him. Also, you will need to bear in mind that AD's take 4-6 weeks to take full effect so dont expect instant results or you will be disappointed. Keep talking to us and let us know how things go.
P.S Delilah... I too was wondering what the latest is on your son.
Hi there Tony2008
Welcome to HW
For me fluoxetine was a life saver (literally)...took me about six weeks to get the full effect...had lots of counseling to help me along the way too - something you may wish to consider
To put your mind at ease - if you are at all worried about your meds plz don't hesitate to ring your doc. and ask for information and advice.
