I was prescribed 20 MG of prozac then after 3 days I'm so posed to go up to 40 MG (for anxiety and panic attacks ) but I'm afraid to take it in case something happens... (ugh anxiety) anyone else out there have a similar problem?
It is hard enough that we have anxiety, then to have to take a med that may increase it before making it better can make the best of us apprehensive about taking it. You may not have any increase in anxiety. Some people do not. If you find that it does increase your anxiety to an intolerable level, you can call your doc to see if you can be prescribed something short term to help ease you through the start up process.
Hope it all works out for you :)
I was and still am the same way I get anxiety about taking medicine because of the sides effects of it. I went to a dr who put me on a natural form of serotonin. It did ease my mind by taking it cause its natural but I can't say that it's doing exactly what it's suppose to be. Might be a good start for you though.Hang in there. I feel your pain.
