Discussions that mention prozac

Thyroid Disorders board

I am hypo thyroid and am getting ready for a hysterectormy in about a month. The doctor suggested I start a med now to help with anxiety and the depression I will feel afterwards (it will be kinda like post-partum I guess). He suggested Lexapro.

Has anyone who is hypothyroid taken Lexapro? I took Celexa for years and put on about 30 lbs that I've never taken off! Lexapro makes me feel the same, relaxed, not a care in the world way and I'm afraid it would just make me even fatter - except I wouldn't care! Yikes!

Does anyone have experience taking Prozac? If I take that in low doses it does help with happiness along with Klonopin for anxiety?
