I've been on generic Prozac for around 4-5 months I started with 10mg and slowly moved up to 40mg. I take it for anxiety and panic attacks yet I don't know if it's really helping. I guess my mood has gotten a bit better but still I get anxious over nothing. There's a very little difference between how I feel now vs prior to my medicines. Am I missing something here?
How should you feel when taking 40mg of fluoxetine (Prozac)?

Oh I forgot to mention one thing that did seem to get better was my sleep. I sleep really good and feel well rested in the morning now.
I also took Fluoxetine 40 mgs once daily for about two years for depression and anxiety. I actually felt pretty good. After about a year and a half, I guess my body got used to the Fluoxetine so I was also prescribed 1 mg. Xanax, twice daily for anxiety as I started having panic attacks more frequently. As I felt better and depression lifted, I was prescribed Xanax for anxiety only. I now only take Clonazepam for anxiety for the last three years. Hope you feel better soon.
