So i decided to call the doctor and they told me to make an appointment in the morning. but my dad said better goto the ER just incase. so i did and i went through some tests with blood and urine and checking my heart rate. and after a minute getting my blood taken they put me on an IV? or something to give me fluids and my arm was stinging (possibly because the tube or needle) and then the symptoms came back and i had the cold mint feeling and uncontrollable sweating and sort of confusion and apparently my heart dropped alot and then i came back to normal within 3 minutes perhaps. and for awhile being there they told me that my blood count was good and everything seemed okay and not to take anymore protein supplements since i started to take it to gain some weight gain back ever since i was diagnosed with a panic disorder. But after that they said that i have a "reactive heart" i guess they said it reacted to changes and stuff especially when i get nervous. i didn't completely understand it, but i guess i was fine to go home. Now here i am wondering what is it i have? is it anxiety related? because it sure didn't feel like anxiety. I can't find anything about this on the internet. i'll be calling my doctor tommorow to follow up but just wanted to ask if anyone here know what it is possibly?
Prozac is a dangerous drug. Sounds like you might be taking too much. I'm not a doctor but years ago I took that too, and am sorry for it. I backed up my car, got out to check the tire while it was backing up, and got dragged backward under the wheels with my legs on each side of it until it smashed into a neighbour's fence.
There is a lot of fluoride in Prozac and if you live in an area where fluoride is added to the water especially, you will hopefully not need that drug for long. Fluoride stays in your system for life, and you get it from so many sources. Like mercury it isn't good for you.
Because I'm not a doctor you have to take my advice with a mere grain of salt, but if I were you, I would reduce the amount to half myself, and gradually, VERY gradually, try to reduce it until I were off of it. You can't quit this drug suddenly because that can cause really serious problems. Often you can get as much help by taking something much safer like St. John's Wort, and/or even by joining some kind of meditation (versus medication) class.
