I was prescribed fluoxetine 20mg after busiprone didn't work. I've suffered from anxiety for the last 6 months. I think and worrying a lot. I sometimes feel detached from reality. I use to be a normal person and I've recently lost motivation and get nervous for no reason. I'm now nervous about taking this stuff because of a very small amount of negative reviews. Can anyone tell me if I'm suppose to take half and day for a week then bump it up to the full pill or what? Any advice will help as I'm ready to get my life back ASAP. Thank you.
The dr should have told you how to start it. The recommended starting dose is 20mg in the morning. You are going to have to take it for a bit before you feel anything. When you were on buspirone how did you take it and how much? Did you give it a month to see if it would work? Just curious about it failing.
Do not worry at all, start taking it. I was also suffering from the condition you are suffering from 6 months ago. I was under depression, anxiety, OCD but because of this medicine my life has completely changed. I think I've found myself.
Its one of the best medicines for anxiety and depression, I recommend you to start taking it. My daily dose is 1 20mg capsule a day.
