In reply to I feel worse on prozac, posted by linkadge on October 13, 2008, at 13:57:22
Yeah, I hear ya Link. I got numb like that on prozac too. Actually at the time it was better than the depression I had prior to it. After a while though the numbness really wore me out. Added zyprexa, that helped some. Later added adrafinil and that helped even more. Still though, things were never quite right.
Some people are lucky and actually experience normalness and remission on ssris, but for a lot of us it is the numbness thing, or even a worsening of depression.
Of all the ADs I've tried, Milnacipran was still the best. Kind of rough side effects if someone is skinny or male, but hey, none of that ssri numbness stuff.
So I wonder, will you try augmenting prozac or getting off it?
