Discussions that mention prozac

Eating Disorder Recovery board


I HAVE BEEN SEEING A PSYCHIATRIST ALL THIS TIME ALSO.
HE SAID IF I WASN'T DOING ANY BETTER BY MY NEXT VISIT(NEXT WEEK) THAT HE WAS GOING TO TRY PROZAC...WHICH SCARES ME I HAVE HEARD SO MUCH BAD THINGS ABOUT IT. I AM TAKING ZOLOFT 200MG A DAY....GABATRIL 2MG IN MORNING AND 4 MG AT NIGHT.....SEROQUEL 25 MG TWICE A DAY AND 300 MG AT NIGHT... PLUS VISTIRIL DURING THE DAY.
TO SAY THE LEAST ITS HARD TO STAY AWAKE....BUT IF I DON'T TAKE THE SEROQUEL I DON'T SLEEP AT NIGHT AT ALL......I HAVE WENT FOR WEEKS WITHOUT ANY SLEEP WHEN I WASN'T ON IT.
READY TO PULL MY HAIR OUT....IT WOULDN'T TAKE MUCH ITS ALREADY FALLING OUT ON ITS OWN! :eek:
Personally, I have heard a lot worse things about zoloft than prozac (all AD's can have bad side effects; but as far as ED's are concerned, prozac seems to be the best). Does your psych know about the ED? Do all your docs? You need to tell ALL your docs, so you can have a complete blood workup.
Also, have you tried trazadone for sleep? It works wonders for me.
NATALIE...YES MY PSYCH KNOWS ABOUT THE ED....JUST NOT HOW BAD IT IS. MY REGULAR DOC DOESN'T KNOW. HE ALREADY STAYS ON TO ME TO HAVE SOMETHING DONE ABOUT MY HEART.I'M GLAD TO HEAR BETTER THINGS ABOUT PROZAC...THE ZOLOFT DOES NOT WORK VERY WELL. YES I'VE TRIED TRAZADONE BUT I DIDN'T HAVE GOOD RESULTS WITH IT.THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS. :angel:
