ITs now been almost a month of flyoxetine, I feel it's doing a good job keeping the anxiety away, but I still get break thru anxiety at night and sometimes in the morning, the longer I'm on this med it should all go away right? Just looking for some positives, sometimes 4 weeks is a long time to wait when you feel anxious, another question, will the drowsiness go away over time??? Thanks so much❤️
Hopeful; Yes the Drowsiness should go away in time Also to reach the full blood level it is 4 to 8 weeks on Fluoxetine so the anxiety should get better too. anytime from now for some people but could be a couple weeks yet to a month but at least at this point you are feeling better. Hang in there your getting close.Chuck1957
Hi, sorry i am just coming across your question! I hope you are feeling better still by now? You may need a dose increase... doctors look at dose increases after someone has been taking an SSRI for 4 weeks, which is roughly the time it takes for these medications to reach full effect. The drowsiness will subside with time... If the breakthrough anxiety continues, your doctor may prescribe Diazepam (to be taken as needed) short term. Stay in touch and let us know how you are doing if you wish...
