Discussions that mention prozac

Depression board


i've been in a major depression for 2 years now. tried effexor and prozac. i've on prozac for a year and have been very stable. so good that i finally go back to work after missing it for 1 year. but lately, i got several anxiety attacks and feeling depressed again... my psych said prozac may not be controlling my condition well enough... i'm switching to zoloft tomorrow... heard that this drug may lead to weight gain. so scared! i'm already super overweight, i can't accept even a heavier me!

oh, so confused... i once thought my depression has left me since i was so stable for almost a year on prozac.

sigh... wonder if i'd ever got over with depression.

I'm here as a newbie and one that has been on 50mg for 8 months...in that time, I've gone from 155lbs to 190lbs and long story short....I have to get off Zoloft. I'm begining my journey now. Best of luck to you.
