I suffer anxiety that leads to panic. Sometimes it's to point where I don't want to be on my own.. even simple tasks lik shoppin or takin my lab for a stroll. All things I want to do. Anxiety seems to have taken me over n can't seem to handle it after 17 years of suffering. I just want to b happy get up n go jolly self again. It's affecting my hubby to.. n my daughter coz I panic about bein out n havin anxitey attack n no one there to help me.. it's stopping us havin fun n goin out enjoyin our selfs coz can't go alone. Doctor gav me 20g fluoxetine , but one side affect is might suffer anxiety or dizzyNess.. I scared coz don't want these side effects... I worryed bout takin then.. it's madness.. please help resure me please
I would give it a try if I were you as side effects subside soon if in fact you even get the side effects. Years ago when I took prozac I was one of the unfortunate ones and it did increase my anxiety, but we're all different and you may be just fine as the bigger percent of people experience no side effects at all..
Good luck and try to stay positive!
When I tried it years ago, the minor side-effects slowly subsided but the lack of sex drive caused more depression and anxiety because when your relationship sucfers, it all gets worse. Wasn't for me but it seems to be many a go to med so they wouldn't prescribe it so often and before other options. Wait awhile see how it works as it adjusts to your chemistry, then decide if it's a keeper.
