    Fluoxetine for Fatigue; Drive disorders; Depression

    Modafinil After a benign brain tumor, I always felt a strong subliminal fatigue, which more than severely restricted my everyday life. After some research on the internet, I came across Modafinil and suggested this to my treating physicians. It does what it should, real side effects I could not determine for me, the dosage level is left to me. -100mg: Since I did not notice much (in connection with Venlafaxin), according to reports from the www but ‘normal’ people have to walk up the wall already … In connection with Flouxetin it looks different. Here are enough for me at the beginning 100mg (Here are the descriptions in connection with Venlafaxin) -200mg: I was awake, the whole day (according sleep provided), I had no significant hole more. -300mg: Since I was quite agile, slightly to medium above the normal addition. To my Venlafix-taking phase, I always took Venlafaxin and 200mg to collect, as needed (daily performance), I then took again later 100mg Modafinil. I never wanted to dare a higher dose. At some point is good, and the body will certainly have its reason after 300mg, if he signals me I do not want more. I never wanted to use it as a performance-enhancing tool, but only to lead a normal life. What includes corresponding performance limits and breaks or recovery times. I am satisfied with the preparation and more than happy to have come across this!

    Side effects: No side effects

    Fluoxetine for Fatigue; Psychological instability; Drive disorders; Depression

    Hello, After a BurnOut with situational depression in 2007 (paraoxat), I was relatively long without major incidents. However, due to high pressure and stress, few breaks and little bit of yours, it started again at the beginning of this year 2011. Physical symptoms (headache, toothache (pulling in the lower jaw), visual disturbance, tension, palpitations, thought carousel, severe acne, weight gain, dissatisfaction, no light in the sky) and pronounced negative sleep hygiene (sleep 16 hours a day). Strong PMHS (especially bad 2 weeks before) I first started psychotherapy and then with the use of Fluoxetine 20mg 1 A Pharma. The first weeks were really steep. I could hardly look out of my eyes, it was like a fog. The fatigue was initially worse, but my thought carousel within the first tablet dissolved like on. I quickly increased to 60mg, then land again at 40mg. I did not lose weight, but I did not gain weight. Four weeks, I was almost giving up, I sat on the couch in the evening and it clicked in my head. Like lightning that changed my thoughts and feelings and made me feel positive. The next day I was full of verve and I was finally better again. This cloudy mood, rain clouds, as if blown away. I immediately started doing sports and healthy eating to support all of this and during therapy I also tried to make my life so that I am no longer close to a burn out. So I take breaks, do not put myself under pressure and start to live again, what was missing in recent years. That sounds all very summarized, whatever it is, but I can say, the familiarization Fluoxetine, I have now switched to Ratiopharm, the fatigue was by ratiopharm why always better, was steep. I wanted to give up, I will not sell the drug for now and continue to take.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Fatigue

    Fluoxetine for Mood swings; Bipolar disorder; Drive disorders; Depression

    I also voted against my Bipolar Affective Disorder Manic Depressive Disease called these two drugs together with my doctor after several years of searching in vain for the right medication. At the beginning, every fortnight I wavered between low mood and unnoticed hypomania. When I did not pay much attention to it and continued to work 60-70 hours a week and in the meantime gave birth to 2 children, it became so bad that I took the eighth train of the emotions at least 1-2 times that day , Today I know why I got this disease as a gift. Back in my teens, when I had very severe acne, my doctor prescribed me a drug called Roaccutan as a last resort, which allegedly drove at least 9 people into suicide. I was lucky enough to be able to control my suicidal thoughts and have myself admitted to open psychiatry. There I was prescribed lithium first. Then they experimented with different drugs from Trevilor to Zeldox or Atypical Neuroleptics like Sulpiride in small doses. But whenever the medications had helped for a few days, the effect simply stopped after certain times. And especially the hypomania was gone but the shit …… Depris were always there and I could not be happy anymore and always had something like a stone in the pit of my stomach. Until I found the combination myself with my doctor. The Seroquel helps me to protect myself in both directions. It helps me more against the exhausting hypo or partial mania. But it does not help enough against depression. That’s why I tried fluoxetine, and lo and behold, both medicines in combination have totally changed my life. When my doctor returned from the congress he said that for bipolar people it is the best combination right now to take these two medicines. At the beginning I had the lithium in addition to the seroquel and fluoxetine. I have asked my doctor to omit the exhausting lithium. He agreed and it came as it had to come. I became so manic that I became aggressive and turned on some people totally and turned off completely. When I was in the open two weeks, I was the seroquel increased by 50% and reduced the driving fluoxetine to a single dose. Since this hospitalization I have now the dose in the morning 100mg Seroquel and 20mg Fluoxetine. In the evening I take now 400mg Seroquel and that’s it. Since then, I feel something of normal as years no longer. I have no big weight gain from the Seroquel and then only between 2 and 4 kilograms. I was always tired and broken at the beginning with the treatment of Seroquel and did not get out of bed. This has changed with the dose increase. I can think clearer again and I can remember things again. So exactly the opposite what others are reporting here about the Seroquel. I have had the best experience with Seroquel and Fluoxetine. And if I have Parkinson’s in 20 years I do not care. Because then at least I was allowed to experience my good years in a normal and joyful way. I wish you all that it may be the same with you as with me. It took me almost 5 years to find the right medication.

    Fluoxetine for Burnout syndrome; Drive disorders

    I can only warn against drinking alcohol in conjunction with this medicine. I had no side effects after three weeks (20 mg a day), except dry mouth and flatulence. I also did not feel a positive effect. I was prescribed the stuff because of burnout and listlessness. I’m not a drinker, but I’m still drinking and never had problems with the alcohol. After the side effects had subsided, I mixed a few drinks (Southern with Coke) on a weekend, I would have preferred that. Normally I would have been pleasantly tipsy but suddenly I just fell over like a tree. My wife was shocked and shook me awake, I was completely gone. Then I got up with her help and immediately turned over again. I was chalk white and made it to bed. She wanted to call the ambulance, but that was too embarrassing for me. My wife did not sleep all night terrified and constantly checked my pulse. The next morning I could not remember anything. The memory of this event came gradually. Not thinking what could have happened to me if I had not been home. I’ve dropped the stuff and I want to warn everyone who has to take it. Avoid alcohol, even smaller amounts, if you have to take the stuff.

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    I took Fluoxetine 40mg for a few months at a time and noticed as a positive effect that I was in a better mood and above all relaxed in everyday life. In between times I have the medi. stopped and realized that I had felt better with fluoxetine. So I took it back up to 3 weeks ago and then lowered it to 20mg by agreement with my doctor and down to 10mg since today. I would like to try again without it, because I have a strong feeling in my hands (especially at night) and there is paresthesia as a side effect and I can currently find no other cause. Furthermore, the sweating sometimes gets on my nerves. In addition, all in all, I have also gained 20 KG and now in various forums read that there is more often in patients as a side effect. I did not know that, because it is not in the leaflet and my doctor said, you decrease rather.

    Side effects: Sensation disorders; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders

    Side effects: the first few weeks gastrointestinal discomfort, e.g. Diarrhea, pain in the upper abdomen, thereby initially loss of appetite. At the beginning of therapy I had inner restlessness and sleep disturbances, which disappeared after about 3 weeks. Benefits: unlike amitriptyline and mirtazapine, you do not feel permanently tired and distressed, and do not get fat because you are always hungry. I tolerate this anti-depressant much better than mirtazapine and amitriptyline. The effect came to me already after 2 weeks and I feel at the moment very relaxed and resilient, I must be too, because I have three children and am working.

    Fluoxetine for Fatigue; Social phobia; Drive disorders; Depression

    So .. now I’m here again after the first experience of Sertralin a year ago. with bad experiences of 50mg, and now Flu. Am a relatively resistant Mdikamenten person, at least as far as the chemical matters. But my anxiety disorder was really strong, so I said to my psychologist (doctor) that I want to try it again, perhaps to make it with a long-term medication and hopefully tolerate! Anyway, I’ve tried Friday with 10mg, I’ve also tolerated well, I was a little sick but otherwise everything is clear .. on Saturday also 10mg, and then everything became stronger, the appetite was weniegr, I was sick all day. Every now and then and I could not foresee it. Moderate abdominal pain and bowel movement was okey. In general, everything affects my gastrointestinal tract. It’s just my weak point .. Luckily I was not fortunately! I should be up to 20 mg on Sunday. Anyway, I am someone who often and a lot of information, also what and how I take something and am usually the follower of natural things. I also have St. John’s wort and Vitango and Gastrovegetalin (for the stomach (intestine) also helped a while .. because of the balm) I talked with her about what could help or what would be appropriate. Also, I told her that I really had some years with her and she would have to know me and could slowly know what ev could fit. Well, there I was with Fl. arrived now – in the description was nothing of help with a nuisance. In addition, I still have medium Depr. it always fluctuates .. well, – I thought I give the means and me the chance .. you do not know if it helps. Despite the Rezzesionen and also other information .. I was not so open-minded, I tried abr. On Sundays I took 20mg and it was too much for my slim body. Either too fast high doses or generally too much! I was bad all day, and even after the meal – my mood was paralyzed, I felt nothing, felt like locked up, no impulses .. was just all shit .. In good German. in the description are the side effects, etc., but they are really shitty, unfortunately I can not continue this way and I do not want it. Nothing at all … At night it was the worst because I suddenly had tremors and my thoughts raced. I did not know if I had a panic attack because I never have that. and do not know that .. Palpitations, racing of the thoughts, trembling and also the hands. I then swore to sell that. And to hope that the aftereffects and weaning symptoms spare me … ^^ Among other things, I was suddenly very forgetful, gasped in a day almost everything, even that I was previously on the toilet. I find no more merry, as I am, among other things, a concentrated human being. In forums, I have investigated whether it would be OK to sell the tablets and NOT sneaking out .. Now I have set off for Monday and I felt better, the feelings came back, etc. on Monday I was auhc better overall, even if the Feelings of anxiety, etc came back, even sad feelings came back and somehow feel like something .. Today (Tuesday), I’m not so sure if the withdrawal symptoms are, but it may be, because I still have BAuchweh .. and I feel bad. Could also be due to my irritable stomach – etc. Let’s hope it does not come from the tablets. I will give the AD another chance … but if the side effects are too big..or you lose feelings .. or notice, NO, without it is better .. test something else. It’s your body … It’s hard, but I think .. you can make it out .. By the way, Prozec .. was NOT allowed twice in Germany, because of the side effects, the suicidal risk and the aggression .. where I think .. that must already mean something … So .. considered, rethink .. evaluates .. or seeks a good psychiatrist .. thinks.

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    I took fluoxetine for a year to get a grip on my depression and my diminished drive. I started with 10mg, so relatively ‘soft’, immediately got a few hours after taking the side effects. It started with nausea and dizziness. i had a beer with a friend that evening and almost fell over. I just made it home. alcohol was taboo since then (after about 2 months I drank slowly and carefully again a bit of alcohol). I could hardly ride any more, got panic attacks, respiratory problems, circulatory problems – but massive. the appetite was reduced relatively strong (at least in the beginning, -4kg), taste changes, etc. extreme dreams, very filmy and confused, which I found rather interesting. the side effects sounded out relatively quickly. Only for alcohol did I react badly for a relatively long time. extremely fast drunk, so much that I immediately fell asleep, or gave myself and then fell asleep, bad headache, total film break (I woke up and knew who, where nor, nor what I was) – so be careful with the enjoyment of alcohol the dose was then increased to 20mg after about 3 months, and then 40mg 4 weeks later. this happened after consultation with my psychiatrist, and on my own request, since I hardly felt any improvement. with 40mg it was a bit better, but the effect was quite minimal. After less than a year, I often forgot to take the intake, consumed relatively high doses of amphetamine (speed) to wake me up, and to be focused. Of course, I was aware that drugs in a therapy are absolutely taboo. I talked about it with my therapist and they talked about ADHD because I did not consume speed to go to parties and be high. I used it as I said to be focused. she suggested ritalin to me, but not really prescribable in germany, and alone the ADHD test at a doctor costs around 250 euro. complete nonsense of my view. (I’m studying psychology myself, so I’m not a non-specialist) then I was proposed edronax. I take this now for 2 weeks. So far, I can not say anything except cold feeling in arms and legs. Conclusion on the subject fluoxetine – no to little effect. possibly due to misdiagnosis.

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    My depression disappeared with the drug after about three weeks. However, the side effects made the drug useless, because after taking a tablet, I was only tired and slept almost the whole day. At the beginning of the treatment and on discontinuation of the drug, I had withdrawal symptoms at night, such as nightmares and heavy sweating, which could be detected for about three days each. With alcohol, the effect of the drug was enormously enhanced. I have never been so happy and happy.

    Fluoxetine for Eating disorder; Drive disorders; Depression

    Fluoxetine / Prozac: I have taken this drug intermittently for several years, between 0 and 60mg. Against fears and obsessions it helps very well, on the whole it makes me more stable and emotionless, which I do not feel as negative. To test the effect, I have taken up to 60mg, but I was still driveless, if satisfied. At the beginning, I lost my appetite, but that soon disappeared. Overall, it slows down my metabolism (I think), I’m increasing faster. (Compared to other depressants but not bad). Fluoxetine reduces the sexual desire, but at low dose this settles down to some extent. Other side effects during the first two weeks were abdominal pain, headache, hair loss. The good thing about Fluoxetine is the high half-life of the drug, it stays in the body for a long time and it’s not that bad if you forget to take it. Also, it can be easier to slink it. !! This drug is dangerous in connection with alcohol. Alcohol and fluoxetine reinforce each other and so I am euphoric and completely detached by alcohol but also incredibly fast drunk which can change very quickly quite quickly. Also, the initial side effects have again shown very clearly. Too much alcohol means for the next day: anxiety, confusion, Depersonalisierungsgefühle, hair loss etc … Alcohol should not actually drink during treatment, in moderation, but my doctor has granted me, however, this measure with Fluoxetine is very very very low . !! Solvex / Reboxetine: Drive boosting! Although medications work differently for each one of them, I take at most a quarter of my 4mg tablet (and not every day) as it is extremely effective. I am much more structured, able to concentrate better and less hungry. I suddenly manage to keep my apartment clean and tidy; D strangely, I am also strangely better at my reflection (usually having a totally distorted self-perception) and greater sexual desire. Too much of the drug (and that’s already 2mg for me!) And side effects right at the beginning of the treatment: aggression, irritability, confusion, palpitations, pimples, sleep disorders (constant awakening, waking too early …)

    Fluoxetine for Drive disorders; Depression

    I take fluoxetine for the second time in 7 years. For the first time, my panic attacks improved so well that I could hardly believe it. After 2 years I put it down because my life had completely changed and stable I was. I reserved the right to take it again. 4 weeks ago it was as far as I asked if I could not get fluoxetine again because I had had good experiences with it. I had taken on the advice of my doctor Cymbalta last year with unbearable side effects such as shaking and constant cold sweat. After weaning … which took weeks, I did not feel like going through such weeks again and let it stay completely. But now … I had never really recovered from the birth of my child, which was unexpectedly very dramatic in 2012. I worked in the household and in the care, only that he is such a sunshine, let me continue. Then again and again I got serious illnesses that were also associated with surgery. And always one on it. I could not anymore. Fluoxetine 20mg increased over 30mg to 40mg daily … for 4 weeks. I am sooooo happy that I took the step to try it again after the Cymbalta disaster. Side effects included mild nausea and diarrhea. Night sweats and loss of appetite. I’m more nervous nerves even if I get little sleep at night, I’m the budget with left and even have fun and fun dating with friends. I had tried this out of simple lack of strength lately to avoid … which is of course an absurdity. I can only say … I would resort to fluoxetine again and again when I realize it will be difficult again. I would probably have saved a lot if I had taken it sooner but I wanted to wait. I can recommend it anyway.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Night sweat; Anorexia; Nausea

    Fluoxetine for Social phobia; Drive disorders; Depression

    First (1-3 weeks) there was no effect. I was restless and had significant sleep disturbances, anxiety, depression, nausea, etc. I lost about 6-8 kg. Over time, the complaints got better. I do not have side effects anymore except that I need less sleep. I become more confident because I’m hardly afraid anymore. No more depression, actually I feel great now, it can only recommend to anyone to try fluoxetine. But if I had not done any psychotherapy and worked on me for a long time, I would hardly have gotten this far. Head up people! It will be alright. Do not give up. I made it after years. My life was a shit. But today it is beautiful. I wish you all the best
