Has Prozac Helped?
I have been taking prozac for my OCD for about six weeks, and recently I've started to feel the effects. However, they aren't very desireable. I sleep only about four hours a night (not a good thing while your're in high school), I have extreme highs and lows that other people are noticing, and I feel nauseated all the time. And, even though I am going through all those symptoms, my obsessions aren't getting any better. I'm starting to lose hope with this medicine, but my psychiatrist and psychologist aren't. Both of them want to up my dosage from 20 mg to 40 mg. So, after that long story, my question is this: Has anyone ever had these side effects while on Prozac, do they go away, and have you had any success?
