Hi all, I have been on 20 mg of Prozac for 4 weeks now, and I am seeing no improvement. As a matter of fact, I seem to be more depressed and anxious. I have an appointment with my psych for Monday. I am disappointed, as I don't like this trial and error with medication. I was on 15 mg of lexapro prior, but it seemed to stop working. I read that lexapro is about twice as strong as prozac, so maybe my dose of prozac is too low, I don't know. I seem to be exhausted all the time, taking a shower is a chore. I was exercising daily, but since I started prozac, I am not able to do that. I tried abilify, that gave me involuntary muscle jerks, even at 2.5 mg, so I discontinued that. I will see what the psych has to say, but my hopes are not very high right now.
