So, I know I have already posted similiar... but I am on Luvox - 150 mg. for 10 years and do very well on it...but due to trying to concieve soon, my OBGYN suggested to go on Prozac while pregnant and I am sooo nervous about changing b/c I feel good on Luvox and stressing, the "what if" I don't feel good on Prozac.. I guess I am obsessing really, LOL.. any advice??

everyone's different. that's the problem. But you know I did this with the Zoloft and I dont know if it REALLY did effect me negatively or if I obsessed so much I gave myself the panic attacks/negative feeling. I think you need to go into more positively.

Prozac is supposed to be one of the better ssri's for OCD.
Can you give hte Prozac a try before you try to get pregnant? That might help reassure you that you'll be okay.
Wish you all the best!
Funny that you say that, because that is what I am doing, I am going to be switching any day onto Prozac.. and not trying to conceive until end of July or August so I will have about 2 full months on it, by early July, I should know if it is not right for me or not, and if that is the case I will switch back to Luvox. They are not saying no to Luvox but rather, chosing Prozac over that. Thanks for the advice, logically I should not worry b/c I can always switch back, true....just OCDing about it, LOL.
I just replied to another thread about Prozac. I have been on it for many years now. Everybody is different, so probably you'll really just have to try... I can relate to your feeling stressed, because if something works of course you don't want to switch! UNLESS... you have to. And who knows, maybe you will feel even better on Prozac?
What I mean to say... let's try to be positive. I mean, we never know, but we need not expect the worst or anything bad at all. (Unfortunately we OCDers tend to obsess, that's what we are good at...;) ) Anyway, let us know how it goes! I hope you will have a WONDERFUL response to Prozac like I did!!
