Hi Jane...thanx for the message. I have tried Prozac, sometimes with good results, but the problem is, it causes both horrible headaches as well as cold/flu-like symptoms in me...even at very low doses. If I get desperate enough, I *may* try liquid Prozac, to try and squeeze in 1-2 mg's and if I can tolerate it.

Thanks again..

Jay

At the height of my depression I couldn't leave the house or pick up the telephone. Now i'm pefectly happy to do either, although sometimes I do feel twinges of anxiety!
