Discussions that mention valium

Depression board


Hi again,

I was wondering something. I was on generic prozac for four weeks which barely helped. Now the psychiatrist doubled the dose to 40 mg and I was wondering when they increase it does it take ANOTHER 4-8 weeks for the effects. In other words, when the increase is given is it just like starting over?

It really helps me to talk to myself about taking it one day at a time, etc. so that is why I would really like to know so I can have a general idea of what to expect and not have too high expectations. It is just so hard....

I am also afraid that I will feel better and then it will go back to being bad again.

I want to start cutting down on the valium as I think it is making me more depressed.

Thanks as always! You guys are really helpful on here and I can't thank you enough.:)
