  1. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  2. Thanks Iowa. It feels great to talk to others and see what they are experienceing too.

  3. I was on Prozac and it helped my anxiety tremendously! But I began getting disassociated with my feeling. I really didn't feel anything.....bad or good. I had zero interest in sex or anything involving my husband. BUT I could feel such a difference when I missed a dose. I was so moody and mean. I swapped to Wellbutrin about 3 weeks ago due to the sexual side effects and numbness. So far my mood swings are REALLY bad and I get angry easily, and I have horrible headaches, but all of my sexual side effects are gone. I plan on sticking with this for at least 2 months to get the full benefits. After reading many articles, I may ask the doctor is I can take a very low dose of Prozac to help with the anxiety/moodiness and stay on the Wellbutrin too. My gyno said that this was an option. Guess it never hurts to try. By the way, my family doctor calls Wellbutrin the happy person drug, if that's any help. If I were you, I would really ask if you can start both at the same time, maybe at the lowest dosage and then gradually increase them as needed. My anxiety and angry outbursts are pretty scary.
  4. Hi, I am a 30 yr old mother of three, 5, 2 1/2, and 8 months. I have just recently really started battling depression. I've always had a little bit of an anxiety disorder. I get stressed out real easy if things don't go right or according to plan. I started Prozac after I had my last child. My husband works out of town every week and is only home on the weekends. I work 3 days a week at a high volume laboratory. The Prozac worked well for my stress but it also made me numb to almost all feelings. The sexual side effects were really bad too. My doctor just switched me to Wellbutrin. I am now up to 75mg 3x a day. I have been on it for about 3 weeks. I can really tell when I haven't taken it but I also seem to be more moody. I scream at the kids and get really mad a my husband. It's almost as if I have a "hot flash". I get really angry and want to throw things. It is awful. I have never been like this before and I really don't like it. I was sitting at home tonight and started crying for no reason. I also got the Mirena IUD about a month after I started the Prozac, and I'm beginnning to wonder if this has anything to do with my mood. I have read that it may cause problems. I believe I'm going to get it removed and soon. I hate feeling like this and am ready for it to be over. I am so sorry for the people who have had to deal with these feeling for much of their lives. I really empathize. I get to the point where I almost feel "defeated." My husband just doesnt seem to understand. He thinks I have it made. I'm off 2 days a week. He just doesn't get how overwhelming it is to work, keep up with three small kids with almost no help, and keep up a house. (I go into work at 5:30 am and have to drop all the kids off at the sitter's. I just really feel like I need a break. "A nice vacation away from reality." Well guys, thanks for letting me vent on my intro. It is just so nice to voice this out loud. I don't like others to know my business. This just seemed like a really nice place to let it out.
