  1. Soarsie, Thank You very much for replying to me!!! I actually just finished tapering off of Prozac. I was getting bad tingling in my face and most of my body. The doctor thought it might be a side effect so I am now on Celexa. Have been doing pretty good. Thank you again so much for taking the time to respond to me!!! People like you make this world a nice place to live! God Bless!!!
  2. 5 weeks on 10mg Prozac, now having tingling in my face and eye feels irritated. Been this way for 3 days. Has anyone else had this? Would have thought it would have happened earlier? Thank You!
  3. Hey Grounded, finally sleeping this last week! 5 weeks on 10mg Prozac, now having tingling in my face and eye feels irritated. Been this way for 3 days. Have you experienced this?
  4. Hi Grounded. I take it in the morning. It doesn’t seem to make me sleepy so not sure if I took it at night it would help or make it worse. My doctor gave me the Hydroxyzine and Trazodone for sleep and Anxiety. I can’t take Benzo’s or anything like that so not sure there is anything else for sleep. My sleep is off and on all night. Now I’m worrying that taking the Hydroxyzine is going to cause me trouble down the road when I stop taking it. I heard it works on the same receptors as the Prozac and in the same way. Also so worried if I have to stop taking the Prozac that I will go through horrible withdrawal!!!! These meds scare the crap out of me!!!!!!!!! I would rather be on the Frontlines in a war then this!!! My Wife seems to think I’m am having improvement so I’m going to try and stick it out a little longer. God this is hard!!!!! Thank you so much for your support!!!! It MEANS SO MUCH!!!!!! IT TRULY DOES!!!!!! I hope you are doing good!!!!!
  5. Well guys, the Trazodone only worked that one night. My sleep has been horrible! Tuesday will be 3 weeks on Prozac 10mg Does anyone have any experience with Prozac and sleep eventually getting better? Im thinking I have to stop taking it. That scares me as well because I don’t want to have Withdrawal!!! Would I just take 5mg for a week and then take it every other day for a week and then stop? I know my doctor is just going to say stop taking it, no need to taper. Thank you so much!!!!
  6. Well I am so releaved to say that the Trazodone 50mg worked!!! I slept better than I have in 2 weeks! Woke up feeling really good. No anxiety or depression! The strange thing is, I actually felt weird because of feeling good. I can’t explain it but it was almost as though it was scary or something like that. I can’t explain it. Thank you everyone!!!
  7. I sure hope the Trazodone helps me Sleep!!! This is rough!!!
  8. Thank you Atra, I truly appreciate your reply! Glad to see you are taking Trazodone. I was afraid to take it but after lastnight I have too! one thing is I never have had sleep problems. Now I do. I hope this is one side effect of the meds that will go away!
  9. Thank you so much Grounded. I’m going to stay on 10mg and see how it goes. My sleep is horrible! Yesterday the Hydroxyzine knocked me out and I sleep. Lastnight I took it and it did nothing! I have Trazodone but didn’t want to take it. I will have to tonight.
  10. Thanks Grounded! I did take the Hydroxyzine lastnight and it helped me sleep. what about my question on the updosing?
  11. Hey guys, if I don’t get any relief of depression in 6 weeks and the doctor ups my dose to 20mg from 10, am I going to have to wait 6 to 8 weeks more for any improvement? Thank You!!!
  12. Thank you!!! Just having support on here has really helped me!!! although I didn’t sleep lastnight well at all, my depression is not as bad as it was the past week. My physical anxiety is worse. I’ll take that over Depression! I’m sure the depression will show it’s ugly head again soon! I know it’s not the meds working as it takes a while. My appetite isn’t back yet so I have to force myself to eat! I do always have an appetite at dinner time. My plumbing was normal today for the first time in a week. Nurse said if that happens along with other side effects lifting it’s a good sign that the Prozac will work. God I hope so!!!!!
  13. He told me it would help with the Physical Anxiety Symtoms I have. Fight or flight etc...
  14. Thank you very much Lonlyforeigner! Glad to hear about the Trazodone. He also prescribed me Hydroxyzine for the Anxiety. Holding off on that for now.
  15. Is sleep disruption part of this startup? I can fall asleep fine but then wake up around 2am and can’t fall back to sleep. Also, I was started on 20mg and the first day I took it I felt really bad Anxiety. My Doctor wasn’t getting back to me so I took the capsule and used a scale I have to cut the dose in half. The scale is accurate. Yesterday the doctor ordered me 10mg tabs. I don’t know if it’s in my head but I seem to feel worse taking them. Today is the second day on the new tab. I thinking it has to be in my head. He also ordered me Trasodone for sleep but I’m worried about taking that. Anyone else ever use that for sleep? Thank You!!!
