Red face Went from Lexapro to Prozac

Hi all again.

My mom back out of her neurologist appointment, I was afraid of this.

Please tell me good benefits of Prozac, over Lexapro, Lexapro was making me soooooooooooooooo sleepy.

My mom basically told me today, to stay out of her private life, how can I do this, when she is getting so forgetful.

She said some really harsh words to me today.......I walked away crying.

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

Hey Himmylover

Know one can really say the good benefits of Prozac, over Lexapro or the bad because everyone reacts differently which is why there are different types so most people will be ok with one or the other.

I hope her appointment went ok.

Try not to take the things she says to heart, i know its really hard because she is your mum but she does love you and she doesn't mean it.

Have you looked into getting some help since we last spoke?

Take care,

Dan.

P.s. you know where you can find me if you would like someone different to talk to

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

About the meds. Give them time to start working and take things one thing at a time.

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

I will give the medication time to work, just not used to only Lexapro............I won't give up on mom, just really got my feelings hurt today. She is right, I have to let her make her own decisions, I guess, why she still can.

Thank you all for listening.

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

Thank you......I need to focus on me a little more........I will give the prozac time. I did NOT want to go back on medications, but guess that is just my part of life.

Thank you again.

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

Dear Himmy,
I know too well how difficult it can be dealing with family issues as well as your own health issues.
Please realize that your mother will always love you even though she's not showing it now. One thing that I tell my children when someone is doing something hurtful is, Don't take it personally because it isn't personal". There's something else going on with her.
Hold your head up high, you haven't done anything wrong.
Keep us posted as to what's going on and how we can help.
Peggy

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

How long were you on the Lexapro? Lexapro can be taken at night to ward off the tiredness. You need to try both medications at least 6 weeks to see if they are helping you. Lexapro is newer and is suppose to be better and have less side effects than prozac. Prozac tends to be more energizing, but this varies from person to person. My experience was Lexapro was better form GAD and Prozac better for depression.

Re: Went from Lexapro to Prozac

When I first started Lexapro I took 10mg at bed time and it made me so sleepy. My doctor had me to lower my dose then take in the A.M and I wasn't sleepy at all, I felt really good.
