... been sweaty, shaky, extremely anxious (feel like constantly on edge of panic) plus have not been able to eat. I manage a smoothie a day. I can’t sleep through the night either, I wake up several times sweating and anxious. I was on the same med at the same dose before, for years, and I don’t remember having any side effects when i started - just really minor ones like a dry mouth. Will these go away?

I'm exactly the same stop fluoxetine about 6 months ago now decided to go back on it currently taken 20 mg what I was taking before and I feel absolutely awful waking up with panic and anxiety also sweaty clammy hot flashes only been on it nearly two weeks and now I want to come off it because of the side effects . I feel like I'm in limbo can't think don't know what to do just want to feel normal it's a horrible feeling
I think that you should go back to the doctor and say that it isn't working because since you haven't taken it in so long that it might affect you're body because of the difference of levels of stuff from the medication in you're blood. I would also go because you should be able to eat no matter what medication you are on. Please update me and let me know what happens stay safe!
