My doctor had added Fluoxetine to my Adderall XR for symptoms of anxiety/OCD. I had been stable on Adderall XR 20mg for 2 years, but I needed to control my obsessions/anxiety thoughts per him. He started me on fluoxetine 20mg QAM. I felt fine for the first couple of days. By the 4th day, I was feeling pretty tired and would take hour long naps. I didn't research and do some internet searching until a few days later, then I went to him, and we agreed to stop the Fluoxetine after 6 days of being on it. I had taken 20mg * 7 pills by that stage. I had also been having a lot of diarrhea and stomach growling while on it too. It's been 4 days since I've last had it, and I still feel headaches, stomach acidity, and the feeling of being tired. He said I don't need to taper it since my dose was so low. But I was wondering, how long do these side effects persist? I understand that the metabolite is an active compound too. I can't study or do anything because of this.
I have been popping excedrin to get me through the day.
