Prozac dose, Tipping over the edge.

Posted by janejj on November 25, 2001, at 21:20:27


I have been taking prozac for a month now, 10mg for the first half and 20mg for the second. The extreme lows seem to have gone, but i still feel down and agitated and not particularly happy. I increased 10 mg to 20mg because i had a breakdown at the hospital walk in centre i was attending for an unrelated medical issue and ended up being put on a form 1 and told i could not leave the hospital. Luckily my boyfriend managed to persuade them to let me go and the dose was increased. However i'm just not happy and i don't want to keep going back to the doctor. Is this just my personality and the prozac has made me the best i will ever be ? Do you think it would be worth trying a higher dose, or shall i just give up ? I totally want to give up now, it just seems that there really isn't a way out of all this. I can't stop all these negative thoughts and i can't feel happy, so whats the point ? I'm 22 and i really can't face the fact that i'm going to spend the rest of my life like this.

Sorry for my ramblings, just need some help, anything that is just going to make me feel better, thats all i want. I'm fed up of stoney faced uncaring doctors, i know they don't really have to care, but i hate it when they seem so cold and uninterested, it makes me want to cry even more......whats wrong with my stupid head.
