This is my second time trying to come off of Fluoxetine. Last time I didn't even get to do stop taking one on alternative days (after a month of cutting down to 20mg) as I fell back into depression. I just wanted to run away.
This time, the doc has put me down from 40mg to 20mg a day for two months. It's day two and today I have noticed that I have felt low. It's the panicky feeling inside I find I can't take, the feeling that I'm just not myself. Like I just want to runaway from the feeling.I just felt so anxious tonight.
While taking 40mg a day I felt great, very confident and happy, but I don't want to be on these all my life.
I am going to see how I go for a week, may be I'll do as KJS has done, and take one dose of 40 meg a week?
I'm split in two again now, half of me wants to really try and stay on 20mg a day for now, while the other half wants me to take 40 a day again and not come off them ever.
I feel so weak when it comes to coming off of them. I'm just so scared to fall back into depression.
