    Fluoxetine for Anxiety disorders; Social phobia; Depression

    Fluoxetine in the context of Doxepin: Significant weight gain of over 20 kilos.Doxepin alone brings almost no nix.Hinterher discontinued and only taken fluoxetine! After stopping the doxepin several years had Herzryhtmusstörungen.Beim you have to watch outright when you drop off Fluoxetine, little side effect, Except short taste changes (Metallic taste in the mouth). Otherwise, Fluoxetine, has little effect on anxiety, but again very good in depressive mood! Also, you ponder less!

    Fluoxetine for Social phobia; Depression

    I have been taking fluoxetine for 3 months. Since I was very afraid of taking it, we started with 2.5mg daily, then 5mg, then 10mg and currently I am at 15mg daily. Nausea did not appear due to this small increase, but other side effects I am currently struggling with. Dizziness, tiredness, big pupils and blurred vision. I used to sleep like a stone and today sleep very restless, sweat and dreams very much and real. Maybe I finally start to process things? But I feel exhausted and tired all day. But my leg cramps, which I otherwise had very often, have already subsided.

    Fluoxetine for Social phobia; Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    In the first week of taking (10 mg) I was extremely tired. I felt as if I had been packed in cotton, especially in the morning after I sweated extremely in my sleep at night. The feeling is comparable to how I felt as a child when I sweated out the whole fever after the effect of a suppository. In addition, there was an extreme increase in appetite, but after two weeks (20 mg) it subsided again. The obsessive thoughts were gone right after the first tablet intake. I was a stranger to myself, because I knew life only with obsessive thoughts, and suddenly it was so quiet … But I’ve got used to it now. It’s definitely nicer to be in here and now and finish things that you start. The fear of people has been reduced to a healthy caution from strangers. However, I only felt a mood-lightening effect after 8 weeks of taking the medication (30 mg). Then the fatigue disappeared. At the moment it is very hot (July 13, 2010) and I have a lot of water retention and a bit of confusion. The latter is not so bad. I’m just a bit forgetful, I’m dizzy and I sometimes say something different than I want, but I’m firmly convinced that I had said what I want (eg I want to say Hape Kerkeling, but say Helge Schneider and I am but convinced I would have said Hape Kerkeling). My fellow human beings point me out regularly. The serenity of the medis makes up for it all. If that serenity could only last forever, even if I cut the meds back out. Overall, I’ve gained six pounds since taking it for the first time.

    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 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
