Re: How Long until side effects stop !!!!
Sorry you are feeling a bit left out! Hope this may help a little.
The thing with medication is, that it affects every person differently so for every person who feels that prozac saved their life, there is another (like yourself) who suffered bad side effects, that is what makes it so hard to say when side effects will subside and the medication will begin to have the desired effect.
Doctors normally advise that you stick to the medication over a 6 week period and ride out all side effects because after 6 weeks it should all settle down and you should start beginning to feel better. But if you find that the side effects are so bad that they are unbearable and you are worried about the effects the medication is having on you then it is best to go back to the Doctor and explain that, I am sure that he/she will listen to your concerns, take the sevireness of the side effects into account and then probably prescribe you new meds which would perhaps be better for you.
all the best.
