    Fluoxetine for Fatigue

    I’ve been taking fluoxtine (20mg) for 5 weeks and have not had any positive effects so far. From side effects such as fatigue, loss of appetite, etc., I can also report. The worst side effect, however, is that I move since the dosage of 10 to 20mg only absent through life. I perceive everything very belatedly and feel like an observer who lets the world go by without comment. And this feature does not usually suit me. I also tried fluoxetine with alcohol. I did not feel that I tolerated less. However, I could only very vaguely remember the entire evening.

    Side effects: Anorexia; Fatigue

    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.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Fatigue

    Take fluoxetine for 1.5 years. Reason: anxiety disorder (social anxiety, claustrophobia, emetophobia) My first experience with an antidepressant. Started with 20mg, reduced because of too strong side effects after 3 days and then slowly rebuilt to 20 mg. Take now for over a year 20mg daily in the morning. The first weeks severe side effects: nausea, loss of appetite, severe lack of concentration (I was actually completely beside me), severe headache, forced yawning, dry mouth, tiredness, night sweats. Better after about 2-3 weeks. Conclusion after 1.5 years: I can go back to work and work. Emotions, however, have fallen by the wayside. I’m pretty much indifferent, I do not feel like doing anything, I can not get up to sport or doing business anymore, I’m generally not interested in anything. I’m almost always tired and sleep 9 to 10 hours – in the afternoon I’m often so sleepy that I have to lie down. In addition to the fatigue and indifference: night sweats, sexual aversion, orgasm inability. At the end of the year I would like to slowly reduce my dose and let it escape. I would like to – despite all the fears – once again feel something like enthusiasm …

    Fluoxetine for Adh syndrome

    It’s my first antidepressant (at 48, I’m proud of myself). I was a bit anxious about the side effects in the first 3 days (1/2 tablet). Headache; I am used, I have taken no countermeasures. Nausea; I just take this way. Extreme loss of appetite; Should I complain about it? Weight loss; I consider that a reward. I’ll start celebratingHooray! Fatigue / yawn; Shit … me on it! Despite all complaint I’m traveling daily. Impairment of concentration; I am special caution driving a car. At the household and working life (8 St./Tag) can be something to remember. Impairment of thought; I do not take anything personally anymore. The feeling that everything is too bright or that I speak too loud. Despite all side effects, I drive at least 35Km car every day. The doctor had me confident, I could do it.

    Fluoxetine for Anxiety and panic attacks; Depression

    For the first few days and weeks, I was often very tired, but not directly unpowered – it was really tired. I was also a little sick and sometimes a bit dull in the stomach. In fact, I also noticed that the suicide risk has increased, but since I was not very suicidal, this increase was not too bad. All of these side effects are completely gone after about two weeks. The only problem I have with fluoxetine is that most of the time I notice that my fear is still there, but not showing, being suppressed. There could be much worse side effects, I think. Overall, I am very happy with the intake of fluoxetine (by the way I take 20mg per day), only the first few weeks were not very good.

    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 Depression

    I have been given fluoxetine because of severe depression, social phobia and hurting myself. Effect: I was in a good mood throughout the day, sometimes almost hyperactive. I was not depressed or sad. Side effect: severe tiredness, I slept from 14:00 to 20:00 (again intensifies depression), suddenly the effect is no longer felt and the evening and the night became agony, slight weight loss, large pupils, slight shaking, hair loss , in the beginning strong, long-lasting period. Is good to recommend, if the problem is in the morning and needs support for the day! I, on the other hand, found out that I need something in the evening!
