Hi everyone, I’ve recently been prescribed Fluoxetine. I’m on 20 mg a day, and have started it to help with panic attacks, anxiety and depression. I’m only 3 days in and really suffering with increased anxiety, panic, racing heart, feel shaky, very tired and bad nausea. Yesterday was so bad I couldn’t get out of bed until midday as I kept fainting every time I stood up, not so bad today, I just woke up later and took it easy, but that was a really scary horrendous experience. On top of everything I just feel ‘weird’, I can’t explain it, I just don’t feel like myself.
Just wondering if anyone else experienced this and if it passed / how long it will take to pass.
Or do you think maybe I should ask my doctor to start at a lower dose?
This feels pretty unbearable at the moment.
