Hi I had success with prozac at 80 mg. I always need a higher dosage of meds because I seem to metabolism them rather quickly. If you don't see improvement after reaching 60 mg, then it's probably not the med for you or it need to be augemented with something.

Have you ever augmented an antidepressant with Cytomel? It's a thyroid med that is often used to augment anti-depressants.

On that note, have you had your thyroid tested? You should make sure you are not suffereing from hypothyroidism.


> Hi everyone,
> It's been a while since I have written...I'd really love some feedback on your experiences with Prozac...I started on 10mg and was eventually bumped up to 20mg after a total breakdown. I have major depression with generalized anxiety disorder. I've been on it at 20mg now for about a month and in total on over two months on Prozac and this just isn't helping me at all. The past two days have been okay, but last week I was convinced I was losing my mind...I have tried Celexa, Zoloft, Effexor, and Wellbutrin and I THINK Celexa was the best for me...the ONLY reason I have tried so many of them was in hope I'd find something that didn't have the sexual side effects. I have hit a point now though, that my health is most important and that the sex drive and sex life is just going to have to wait. I am still struggling with my worst bout of depression right now and have an appointment with my psychaitrist on Tuesday to switch my meds back to Celexa(it really worked well in the past, as I mentioned above)...
> So my question is, what is your experience with Prozac...did you have any really bad reactions to it? Like, I have been married for ALMOST a year and I have had myself convinced for two months that I am with the wrong person...and he is soooooo good to me...yes, our relationship isn't perfect just like all other relationships, but not to the point where I should be thinking I shouldn't be with him...I have had this inner conflict in me for about 2 months of total confusion as to where and why I am having these thoughts...
> I'd love any responses...
