Yesterday was my 3rd day taking 20mg of Prozac prescribed by the doctor for depression and major anxiety and panic attacks. I am 19 years old. The first day was okay, couldn't sleep well but that's all. 2nd day was good but woke up feeling anxious. Went to the restroom and had a panic attack. Upon awaking I instantly felt anxious, my chest felt really tight and tingly so I hopped in the shower and it went away. 3rd day on Prozac was really good. I had tons of energy and wasn't real anxious during the day but then came night fall. I fell asleep just fine but woke up 1 hour later and had the same symptoms as night 2 but worse. I dont know if this is just a normal side effect and if it will go away but it's really unpleasant and I hope it goes away. Does anyone else expirience this?

I am back on Prozac after being off it about a year. I also used to use the generic by Sandoz. I’ve only been on this new medication (10 mg) for a week. It’s been a rough week and I pray it will get better. I know that when it does kick in, I feel completely normal and, most important, happy. I hate the sexual side effects and it may or may not be tough on your hair.
Is there really a difference with the brand name and if so, how is it different? Thanks.
I'm on day 2 of Fluoxetine and the first day was pretty good... felt okay, maybe a little anxious at times. Day 2 was okay until around 3pm (I took the pill at 11am). I'm anxious and keep getting hot flashes... It's the weirdest thing.
