First Week On Prozac...
Posted 11 January 2012 - 12:06 PM
Today, I just finished my first week on Prozac to combat my increasing anxiety issues. The first day or two was fine. I felt a little better as if a fog was beginning to lift in my head and my anxiety had decreased (though not all the way). However, around day 5 my anxiety started to peak. I would start to wake up hours earlier than I normally do and I would be shaking and fidgeting. The anxiety would build the rest of the day. Its almost as bad as the worst times I had anxiety before I started taking the medicine.
I guess I am really discouraged because I really want these meds to help. I know from reading the forums that some people have hard times on Prozac, but that they eventually lead to profound progress. Does anyone have any experiences with this either way? I am feeling a little lost here. Thanks and God Bless.

Hopefully you will feel a bit better each day, but it can take 6 - 8 weeks for it to take full effect,
If you are concerned, ring your Psychiatrist and discuss your symptons.
Wishing you well

Give it at least 4 weeks to start working. I became really hungry using the 1st week, then went back to normal. Started to see improvements after 4-5 weeks.
Your anxiety could just be from your desire to feel better - might not be the Prozac but check with your doctor to be sure.
Meds: Wellbutrin and Prozac
Current therapy: Meds, psychotherapy, some exercise
