I def do not have an history of it and have never takin meds for it. I told my doctor about two weeks ago and he prescribed my prozac20mg and xanax.5mg..I feel like it might be making me worse.I just want to sleep all day and just do nothing.I feel so emotional and feel like maybe things would be easier for everyone if I just weren't around anymore. I have 2 beaustiful daughters so I wouldn't ever actually hurt myself but I just don't know what to do with myself! I can't live like this and my kids diserve a better mommy... help!
I experienced the exact same thing after the birth of my daughter, so you are not alone atall. Please please tell your doctor that you are feeling worse on prozac and xanax!!! Tis very important that you get the help you need as soon as possible. You may actually be having a reaction to either one of these medications, and a switch to something else may be just the ticket for you.
Worry not meowmami, the right medication can be found, it just takes some time. And you may feel a wee bit like a guinea pig until the right med for you is found.
That passive feeling of "things would be easier if I were not here" is a bit alarming, yet you do not sound the least bit suicidal, you don't sound like you would actually do it, thank God!!
Sometimes prozac can make certain people feel a bit suicidal, so call that doc asap!!!
Please post again so we know how you are doing???
Best wishes to you and your new wee one,
Zoloft is a common antidepressant prescribed for post partum depression. It is not common for xanax to cause what you're feeling, so I'd rule it out and change meds first. It is NOT NORMAL to be feeling how you are, so please make an appt with your dr. soon! also, i agree with sweet lemon, prozac is known to cause worsening of depression and suicidal idealizations, and even extreme anger or rage. Finding the right antidepressant is important. don't get discouraged! hang in there!
