Seven weeks ago my doctor put me on Prozac. I had requested a low dose of 10mg taking it in the morning and thinking it was all I needed. A few weeks ago I started with worse anxiety, loss of appetite and lack of interest in anything. At my appointment today, he increased the dose to 20mg and said I should feel a lot better within a week with no additional side effects. I don’t know how I will feel as I have been on Lexapro previously and an increase then gave me side effects for weeks along with body aches and pains. Those have since gone but now I’m anxious about this increase to 20mg.
Can someone please reassure me that Prozac is the way to go with generalized anxiety. I’m tired of not feeling well! Thank you.
