I have been on Prozac this time round for over four years. in this time period i have been put on mood stableizers and given sleeping pills. Just over a year ago i was told by a doctor to just stop taking them as i wanted to come off of them. This was a mistake and i had sever anx, depression and panic attacks. I went to see another doctor who weaned me back on to my two a day dose.
I was terrified to stop taking them again, i became such a mess that my boyfriend moved out and moved town because he couldnt deal with me anymore. about six months after that i went to see a psychiatrist to see if he could help me get off of the drugs. he put me on mood stabilizers and these made me so sick and dizzy that i had to stop taking them in order to work!. In the end i halved my dose and have been on one a day for ten months. two weeks ago i decided to half this again and am now on one every other day. i dont know if this should make that much of a difference but i am feeling very low and noticing the change. I am so scared that it will get worse. my boyfriend (who came back after a ten months) said that he thinks i am going to have another turn. if i do this time i am moving out and i would not know where to go. I am so scared of the feelings i am haveing. Its just like the old days. i am terrified. If there is anyone who has any advise please write to me i would be very gratfull.
