Prozac - October 8th 2009, 09:32 PM

I just wanted to know what I should expect when I start my prescription for prozac. I have anxiety/panic attacks, so I'm dwelling on the side effects. Especially since my last meds made me even more nauseous than normal.
Any help would be appreciated.

I cant tell you what to expect because for everyone its different.
I was on prozac for depression.

At first, I took it regularly like I was supposed to.
Then I started taking it when I wanted to.
Not every day or sometimes not for a few weeks.
For me, it took about a month or so to start seeing changes, as expect and common for most meds.
The med is used to balance chemical levels in your brain so it takes a while to feel like it works.
But not long after I felt a change.
It made me calmer and in better moods.
It didnt make me sick or feel sick.
I dont remember how long I was on it, but it worked.
I eventually took myself off it because I wanted to prove I could change myself.
And I did.
I dont recomend you do that.
Some days got pretty bad.

Stay on it regular and listen to the doctor.
If it makes you feel so or a negative mood change, tell the doctor as soon as possible.
But from my experience, it helped.
And I would hope to expect it to work for you.

I hope this helped.
Let me know how things go.
