Just popping in from the crohns forum....
I was on 20mg of fluoxetine for 1.5 years and about 2 -3 months ago I successfully titrated off. Circumstances in my life drastically changed and my doc and I thought it was a good idea to restart them. 10 mg for 10 days then up to 20mg. Since Monday (day 5) I've been incredibly nauseas, pupils dilated and generally disinterested in doing anything. I woke in the middle of the night with vomiting, headache and dizziness. I feel pretty awful dealing with these side effects. My doc is away and I don't know if I should stop the 10 mg......? If I continue, how long will the side effects last? I'm very reluctant to increase to 20mg but don't have enough 10mg pills to continue a bit longer.
