... had a horrible time with prestiq which raised my blood pressure sky high so we are trying this. She also wants me to take klonopin twice a day for the anxiety till the prozac kicks in. I seem to have more anxiety than I did before starting. Is this normal in the first weeks?
Hi dharvey, I also take prozac (generic) and have NO side effects from it. I've tried many antidepressants, and fluoxetine is the ONLY one that works without side effects for me.
I hope you have the same experience.
Sometimes our expectations of a medication (or medications) can be so high, that we expect way too much right from the beginning. Wait three to four weeks before judging prozac (fluoxetine), but the klonopin should be helping you.
Would you please add some info? Please add how many miligrams of klonopin you are taking, and how many times a day? That will help others answer your question.
Best wishes, and hang in there, it gets better!
