I have bad panic disorder and anxiety mostly at night time. I started taking Xanax I am able to sleep now but still very anxious to do anything. I got Prozac 10 mg today and I'm curious if it actually will make it better? Im a little worried because I tried Zoloft once and it made me feel extremely depressed. Also I get migraines now is that from anxiety?
Ocean; Yes this is a good one to help with the anxiety and panic and they could be causing the headaches, Just remember when you first start these, many people have an increase in the symptoms they already have plus the side effects you may get for the first week or two and this is normal you just have to work your way through them. THEN continue to take about the same time of day and you well reach your full benefit of this medication about 6 to 8 weeks from when you started it. And you do have some Xanax to help with the panic and anxiety while you are getting through the first couple of weeks of this one. Good luck you can make it. Chuck1957
Hi, i was prescribed Prozac when i was a teenager and it made me feel much better, more confident and lessened anxiety. Unfortunately the way this medication works is that it can make you feel worse before you feel better, you may find you have heightened anxiety and/or depression initially, but it is a very good medication (in my opinion) so it is worth sticking with it. The Xanax will help you through these short term induction side effects. I'm not sure how the Prozac will affect your migraines??? I still suffered from migraines during treatment, but everyone is different.
