100 mgs of Prozac?

They say nearly 100% of depressions can be cured and that the primary cause of failure is too low a dose and too little time. For example, pdocs who have learned know that some people need between 100mg - 200mg Prozac. And three months is needed, not the usually touted 6 weeks. But for you and me, the problem with that is finding a drug we can tolerate at such high doses.

100 mgs of Prozac???!! 5 mgs made my stomach ache with anxiety. 20 mgs caused me to lose 21 pounds in 2 weeks. It was a miracle I made it to work. When I got home I couldn't move from the couch. At the one month mark on Prozac I finally realized that this 1 month torture rack was not really me losing it ... You get the picture? When I told the Pdoc about what was happening to me , he said, "well, people tend to overeact to the stimulating effects of Prozac" , insinuating that my current state of mind (I think it would have been classified as drug induced psychosis)was of my own doing. I canned that doc. I can't really say anything positive about most of my other docs either, even though I still had hope for medical intervention after Prozac. ( I think most people would have gotten the hint, and took Nancy's advice and "Just said No").

Thank God some people get relief from meds. I suspect just as many don't find relief from meds. Most people come out of depression on their own, without meds, IN MY OWN OPINION (we're all entitled to it, right?).

Anyway, 100 mgs of Prozac????!!! I think I might spontaneously combust if I ingested that...

Good luck to all.
