... How long does this last?? Agitiated also. All this for one week a month.
When I started prozac I felt the same way. I stuck it out for a good week till I started to feel really good! I was taking it for an eating disorder. I was willing to to do anything to put that monster to sleep! I can almost guarantee all these nasty side affects will go away. I started on 60 mg a day which made me have the shakes (although not particularly nervous. I also make me loose 10 pounds in 2 weeks that I didn;t need to loose, but when you are agitated you normally don't have an appetite. I say stick with it. I was lucky to be a stay at home mom at the time so didn't worry about the next day or insomnia. For the insomnia my same dr. put me on 10 mg of ambien. The two meds together worked like a charm. Good luck to you and Happy New Year :)
