I've just started on 60mgs of prozac yesterday under the pdocs approval. Going up from 40 mgs.
I had noticed a difference being on 40 but my days were still too varied I wasn't staying level enough which especially with kids in the house (and for my own sanity) I need to be.
Prozac is the only drug I've noticed that I feel worse again with with an increase, all the others just made me dopey for a few days as I adjusted. Prozac gives me more anxiety and bad thoughts for the first 3 or 4 days. I'm on day 2 now so I'm hoping it'll go quickly. I keep saying to my husband I wish I was in hospital, I know it's only such a small thing but having trained people around me to reassure me that these feelings are normal would make all the difference.
Good news being my pdoc feels like I have been making headway with my anxiety, he's very much into journals and having stuff in writing for you to go back to. He says it's great that I've been challenging and using my own CBT against the anxiety. Getting in a car has been a problem since my near car smash so i really have to push myself on this issue but if I don't have to pay to go privately to hospital I really want to pack everyone up in another 2 or 3 months and say road trip to Queensland so I have a big positive to reach for.
