Discussions that mention prozac

Thyroid Disorders board

Before I was diagnosed, my doctor told me I suffered from anxiety, depression and PMS. I was put on Prozac to help with the terrible cramps I was getting every month. It did take away the cramps but didn't do anything for the anxiety/depression. So the doctor added Xanax. And that didn't do anything for me either. Both of those scripts together did nothing for the anxiety/depression I was having.
I can't tell you what you should do but if I had to do it over again knowing what I know now, I would aggressively pursue the thyroid angle first. Once the doctor brands you with anxiety or depression, it can be difficult to get another diagnosis.
