i was prescribed prozac on 8-8-11..i started at 10mg and noticed i became very weak and shaky so i stopped it. I started having mental breakdowns so I started to again about a week later. Again on the 10mg. My doctor told me to up the dosage to 20mg. I was on it for 3 days and noticed my jaw was starting to shake. I ttalked to my doctor again and he told me to stop it. I have been off it for two days now and I am still shakey and weak... any suggestions.
you weren't on a high dose or for very long, which is good. I had a similar reaction to the extended release, but not the regular. It should ease up soon and be gone within a few days. I have heard that the supplement 5-Htp helps with ssri withdrawal, you can get that at GNC and many large chain drugstores carry it in the supplement aisle. Hope you feel better soon. Patti
