For 20 years, I took 20mg of Prozac for depression and panic attacks and it worked wonders. This past year, I went through a phase where I was forgetting to take it and before I knew it, I hadn't taken it in months. All the old depression and anxiety symptoms returned with a vengeance and I started taking 20mg again. For two weeks after starting back on the 20mg, I've had terrible headaches, dizziness and nausea. I stopped taking it and felt better. I went to see my psych and she started me on 10mg. I've been on the 10mg four about 9 days now and the side effects aren't as bad as when I was on the 20mg, I don't have the nausea, but I still have the extreme dizziness and headaches - and don't even want to think about going up to 20mg yet. As far as the depression goes, I already feel much better, but I don't know how much longer I can tolerate the dizziness. Should I just be more patient or is it time to think about changing to a different medication? My psych suggested switching to Lexapro but everything I've read about it sounds like it is very similar to Prozac.
