Yeah. I posted this in September and a lot has changed since then. My doc put me on Prozac 6 weeks ago. Best move I ever made. I have tried 2 or 3 different anti-depressants over the years and after taking each one only a few days wouldn't take them any more because they made me feel strange. But this one has really helped. I take my 5th shot tomorrow and I think that the Prozac has been part of the reason I'm as ok as I am.
Hi charmed...I am in North Carolina visiting my mommy. It is nice here and good weather. I tried the lexapro and even took it at night and it made me feel weird. I think I am depressed. Not severely or anything just a little. I am going to have to ask my doc to try something else or I am going to have to try taking it earlier in the evening in hopes the weirdness of it wears off the next morning. I also never take it for more than two days before I give up and stop taking it because it makes me feel weird. Did prozac make you feel funny the first few days and for how long if so? I take a lot out on my husband and I miss us being nice. I am not mean but I am not nice and I am pushing him away because of it. I don't want that. Having a child brought us closer in so many ways but also did not in so many other ways. I don't need yet another thing to damper our relationship.

I am so sorry to hear that. With the prozac, unfortunately, I was hungry. Other than that, I just felt better. Read up on it. I went to the ****pedia and that was informative. Don't read too much though, just like with anything else you can read just enough to scare you. I think that maybe you should give it a try though. I don't want to sound like a prozac commercial or anything but... It's not even expensive. With my insurance I pay less than $5. Give it a try and enjoy the weather. It is 70 degrees here and I am loving it. Me and a friend of mine are going to eat a taco salad and just be outside for a while. Trust you!

I just wrote an hour ago and was in a totally different mood. Ahhhh mood swings. Now I feel fine. Go figure. lol. The weather has been nice and going out in it helps me a lot. I took my son to the park a today and we have been outside in the yard a lot too. Ya know what is crazy...I usually like having a cocktail and I don't even feel like it on the tx. I would not even if I felt like it but still I think that is interesting. Have a good taco salad. That sounds good.
[QUOTE=MommyInLove;2830545]Charmed, I read your post and sat here in disbelief because I could have posted the same thing. I have been so incredibly moody and mean to my partner for the last couple of years. A lot of that was due to fertility treatments that we were going through. I have always thought about talking to my doc about my "moody-ness" and getting on an anti-depressant, but I wasn't sure how to broach the subject with the doc. I couldn't be positive that I was actually "depressed" and that just sounds so weird for me to even say. I always just thought I had other issues. I just posted my 1st post here and the jury is still out on whether or not I am infected with hep c, but I'm slowly starting to put the puzzle together. A lot of things are making sense now, ya know?

I just wanted to say hi and I can totally relate to what you are going through. I see that you are now in treatment for hep c? I'll keep my eye on your journey.

Bless your heart. Finding out was the best and worst thing that ever happened to me. The worst thing is pretty obvious. The best thing is that it explained so much about me. I was NOT crazy or the laziest person that I've ever known either. All those times that I felt bad and couldn't explain why I felt like I had a fever and my husband thought that I just wanted some attention (lol), I finally knew why. The moodiness and the mind trips are all a part of it. But a good antidepressant really helped me. I know that you read about the Prozac and I'm not saying that is what you need because everyone is different. It's all trial and error. But it is worth investigating. Expecially if you are experiencing moods bad enough to post on here. Good luck. Let us know your findings.
