Re: Prozac - Withdrawl Symptoms

Yes. I take SAM-e along with 20 mg Celexa and it works very well. I have been taking SAM-e for about 2 years. Up until 2 years ago I took Prozac (20 mg) for about a year but stopped because it started to be less effective. Celexa is similar to Prozac, but less activating. However, Celexa is more activating than Paxil.

If you had success against depression with Prozac but felt that you were too agitated or had other side effects, I would recommend staying with the Prozac but maybe trying a lower dose of it. Try taking 10 mg for a month or so and see if that works better. It's not good to have to rely on a drug but nothing is worse than depression.

I admit that is does help to take a half a pill when i feel this brain thingie (I'm coming off of Luvox), but I suspect that soon I have to go cold turkey off of this shit to ever get it completely out of my system. (excuse my french). I am so tired of my brain having to RELY on a drug to function normally.

> > You say that taking the drug makes you feel better, well of course it does! Your brain is addicted to it! It needs it! Personally, I say throw all of it in the garbage. Going back on it is NOT the answer. I don't know what IS the answer, but I know that I don't want to spend the rest of my life depending on a drug's availability for my sanity.
> I am glad to know that others are having some of the same side effects that I thought were instead related to a recent fall out with a friend. I notice that I am slightly more sensitive in that I think possibly others are criticising me when they probably are not but I am not as likely to sit back and let others walk all over me, I am bitchy. However, I had totally lost all desire/ability for intimacy in my life.
> I notice the crashing thing in my day too. Exercise does help! I am not one to exercise. I have gained about 70 pounds since I began prozac about two and a half years ago but once I exercise life seems much easier.
> Does anyone know anything about the herb sam-e?
