Thread Name: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
Subject: RE: BS: Anti-Depressants / Getting off of
I take Prozac and have for about 8 years. After several years of intensive therapy I went off of it under the supervision of a therapist and a psychiatrist. All was well for about a month. Then panic attacks, depression, lack of concentration, irritability all set in in spades. I could not control it. Apparently, once my seratonin levels drop, I am in trouble. I went back on Prozac.
My doctor would like me try newer medications but all require I go off Prozac and I am not willing to risk the side effects. Good luck with getting through this.
