Discussions that mention prozac

Quote from cujo25:

When you had your whirlwind romance were you on medication? just curious. As I first met her in June and things between us were the same all the way til 4 weeks ago, literally after the meds stopped.

Also I just called her Doctor, obviously they cant discuss her with me, but they can listen. I told them what is going on right now, they made an appointment for her and said they will call her and "remind her" of her appointment. Im sure she will be thinking what appointment? but maybe it will spark something. The woman on the phone sounded upset as she has a daughter thats 19 and said her mother should be doing this however her mom simply wont face up to it. I can only pray it will help to get through to her. I have a bad feeling otherwise should could be in this state for a long time to come.

Well, I have been on and off of meds since I can remember. I was just diagnosed recently. I always knew there was something the doctors weren't getting though. They would put me on Prozac, Paxil, Wellbutrin, and finally Zoloft. During the whirlwind relationships, I was not on meds. On one of them, I was on meds but not consistantly. BIG MISTAKE. One of the relationships(before being dxed), my bf was bipolar as well as his Mom. I sort of felt like the "victim" in that one. Still, it was one of the things that I look back on now and realize that that was all a Mania stage that caused me to jump into this relationship. I wanted to spend every waking minute with him. Moved to Florida with him(in same house as his Mom). All of this was in a time span of a few months.
So, you called her Doctor? While, I can appreciate you care for her, I would limit it to just that one phone call. You called and expressed your concern for her and I think that is all you can do.

This disease is so damn complicated...
