I’m at day 12 on Prozac 20mg. I awake feeling jittery still. I usually take .5mg clonazepam about an hour after taking Prozac. During the day, it feels like the nervousness is always present. Will calm ever return?
When will you know Prozac is working?

I was on Prozac for some years.
It takes 2 to 3 weeks in order to start feeling some improvement and for full therapeutic effect, 6 to 8 weeks. Of course everyone is different, it may take a bit less or more depending on your metabolism.
Early signs to know if your medication is working; You should feel more relaxed, improve sleep and appetite, feeling less anxious or fear etc. you have been taking it for only 12 days. I suggest you to give Prozac a few more weeks before giving up. It does get better over time. Hang in there, stay positive. Try to occupy yourself by reading, listening to music, taking walks, practice breathing techniques etc. don’t let your anxiety control you. The medication will work, fingers cross for you.
