    Fluoxetine for Aggressiveness; Depression

    On my third try, I finally managed to stay tuned and not stop because of the side effect. Side effects: heavy sweating, nervousness, insomnia, chattering like a waterfall (I’m usually always silent). I took fluoxetine in the morning (took the smallest doses because they work for me and reduce the side effects). In addition, after a few weeks, I got Trazodone for evening consumption. I was skeptical at first – 2 anti-depressants at once ?! And from then on no side effects anymore. No more sweaty and finally, after many years, I could sleep like a baby. During the day I am in a good mood. However, I still can not really feel positive feelings. But good mood is already enough for me 🙂 I’m sociable, feel no extreme hatred, am no longer aggressive and fall in heavy fatalities not so deep. By the next day at the latest I feel completely okay again. I look to the future again, I have plans for the future, I do not want to kill myself anymore. P.S. I am very overweight and do not take the tablets. And my tip to all have the strong side effect: many doctors pop in a same high doses. I only started with 5 mg and take only 15 – 20 mg a day after weeks and that helps! At higher dose, the side effects were unbearable and therefore I had previously stopped taking it several times.

    Side effects: Nervousness; Insomnia; Sweat

    Fluoxetine for Anxiety and panic attacks; Depression

    My experience with fluoxetine was unfortunately negative. Because of depression but also because of recent panic attacks and anxiety, I wanted to try fluoxetine, since you do not gain as much weight as other ADs. My doctor said at the beginning that I have to be patient for at least 3 weeks (10mg) in the morning, but the NW were so strong after 2 weeks that I could not take a day longer to take fluoxetine. I have lost 3 kilos in 2 weeks because the appetite is completely gone and my panic has become 100x worse, I could not sleep anymore and I was even more depressed than before Fluoxetine! I do not want to scare anyone here, it may help others, but then I changed the drug from day to day (paroxetine 10mg) and after one tablet the fear was immediately better! The panic almost gone! With fluoxetine you really have to be patient, but if you get the feeling that things are getting worse and not better then please change the medication.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I take 20mg Fluoxitin for three months. The first three days were very tough. Sweats, total insomnia, irritability, dizziness, diarrhea, nausea. After a few days it went and I found only slight dry mouth and libido loss. Meanwhile, everything has settled down, I have no side effects and I feel much better. I am more active, I can get up better in the morning, I am calmer in stress and generally have a much better mood. Fingernails grow again for the first time in years – I used to nibble on them before stress. This medicine helped me!

    Fluoxetine for Post-traumatic stress disorder

    The first few weeks very severe headache and the constant feeling that the body is collapsing. Descriptive tiredness and at night I can not sleep without sleeping aid. However, all this was harmless: The worst is a massive increase in depression, including acute suicidality. In the fourth week, the headache has subsided, but more heart pains occur. The psychiatrist only prescribed me the medication with the indication that it will increase my drive and is not expected to gain weight. As usual, possible NWs were concealed. The suicidality, for which the Medikamnet after research, is very notorious, I was, of course, concealed …
