I've been taking fluoxetine for just over five weeks and can't decide if I should tough it out or just go cold turkey. I started taking it because I suffered a panic attack because I've been stressed out over finding a new job. I originally started on 20 mg for the first few days because they were given to me by my mother who takes them, then I dropped down to 10 mg after I saw a psychiatrist. I've had terrible side effects (increased anxiety, intrusive thoughts, irritability, insomnia, fast heart rate, drowsiness, etc). I know you should be careful when stopping SSRI's, but I'm pretty fed up right now. Any advice would be appreciated.
