Discussions that mention prozac

Family & Friends of the Mentally Ill board

Hi, My partner has been depressed for some time now due to post natal depression. She was prescribed prozac but had stopped using this after a week.

Now, she says she is fine but all of a sudden this week started losing interest in anything exept the computer. she's giving me a hard time telling me that all of a sudden she has lost interest in my phsysical appearance and also wants to be by herself to "sort her head out"

we have a three month old daughter who i'm sure does not want her parents torn apart by depression.

now, she will not listen to me and thinks i'm wrong when i tell her that she is depressed, she has a lot of symptoms and i have been depressed myself, so i am aware of the effects.

i just want some advice on how i can help her out as our current situation is quite horrible and i do not want this to break up our family.

i am here for her, i do everything i can, i just want her to listen, get help and work on herself but i don't want this relationship ended because of depression because i can't handle it anymore.

anyone able to help or suggest ways i can get to to realize she's depressed and get help? we have a doc's appt next week, but i think she will lie to her then and if she gets pills, not take them.

any advice on how i can help her see this and get help is appreciated. thanks.
