Re: Does Prozac make you feel like crap when you first start taking it?
Well, I started the Prozac today (actually, the generic form). I did take it for 2 days last week and then chickened out (don't ask me why!) and stopped. Then, I had such a bad day yesterday that I decided I needed something to make life bearable. Sure, I can do everything possible to improve life (self-empowerment I believe it's called). However, reality says that my life isn't going to change much.....being a wife & mother of 3 young sons. I owe so much of my time to them right now that I can't focus on "me", other than seeing my therapist weekly (which is a welcomed addition to my life). So, here's hoping the Prozac can help.
Additionally, I do realize that I have OCD and a great deal of anxiety. My only fear, as is everyone's fear with AD's is the weight gain.
Here's hoping that Prozac will help me to feel good again!
