I'm on day 10 of Prozac, having failed with Lexapro in the past and successfully having been on Wellbutrin for 4 years before it started giving me side effects and I tapered off.
My side effects on Prozac just feel like too much to continue pushing through. My anxiety and depression are a lot worse, but that's not even the part that's stopping me.
I'm getting really bad sleep disturbances, I'll wake up in the middle of the night with full body paresthesia, I'm having a lot of diarrhea, I'm clenching my jaw constantly, I constantly catch myself tensing random muscles, my head constantly feels foggy, my heart randomly starts racing, my tinnitus got worse to the point I can't tune it out anymore, my appetite and libido are gone... and that's just the stuff that I can think of off the top of my head.
I have no doubt this medicine works well for some people, but I just don't think I'm one of those people.
