Along with the help of Klonopin, I've been doing great up until yesterday. Yesterday was two weeks in taking the Prozac and I woke up with anxiety and that lasted all day and I still have it today. The Klonopin isn't doing much to help. I'm wondering if I need to ask her to raise my Prozac dosage. Also, I've had lots of sinus and I had started last week using a steroid nasal spray. I wonder if that had anything to do with it? What mg Prozac do most people take?
My Dr. switched me from 20 mg Lexapro to 20 mg Prozac because the Lexapro quit working?

Well I went to the dr today. She felt the 20 mg Prozac wasn't handling my anxiety (duh). She raised my Prozac to 40 and added 25 mg of lamactil. Has anyone ever taken this for anxiety??
TKMarsh711; first there really is not any magic milligram we are all different. But what is happening it sounds like it can be the Lexapro leaving your system as the Prozac is building up to help you and it is very normal to feel good then get a few bad days. As far as the Steroid nasal spray in most cases it does not bother people but some very sensitive it is possible that it could react so I would say Call your doctor today to make sure please don't get too upset this all sounds normal to me and it well settle down dear friend so please don't panic you well be okay and the more you worry the more problems we bring on more problems so call and check with your doctor.
I think in switching to Prozac some anxiety might be normal. But if you feel it's the Prozac why would you want to go up in dose? You think maybe that will subsidize the anxiety? I took 40 mg. of Prozac before it worked. 60 mg. was too much. I would still use the klonopin but definitely make an appointment to talk to your doctor about the anxiety.
Good luck to you, hope you feel some peace.
