    Fluoxetine for Overweight; Sleep disorders; Obsessive compulsive disorder; Depression

    I have been suffering from severe anxiety disorders for 9 years. After Zoloft got Cipralex over 2 years. No side effects. Good tolerated. My fears and panic attacks were barely there. Then last year I stopped the Cipralex without a doctor because I thought I was tough enough and fit again. Had 2 weeks to run on cotton wool. Dizziness … After 5 months, I then realized how that with the fears and Depression and compulsion started again and my general practitioner gave me fluoxetine (because I’m very overweight) and the drug would help reduce it. 14 days I went through hell with the side effects. The complete leaflet was in my body represented. The worst for me was the feeling as if I have drunk China oil. A chill after another. Panic … heart rate … Nausea. Also good weight loss. But since I had read here that one should persevere … I was brave. After 14 days I collapsed with my doctor with severe panic attacks and she has sent me to the hospital …. 5 weeks I was there stationary and was again adjusted to Cipralex … in the beginning 10 mg … then 15 mg … now 20 mg. In the evening to sleep in and out I take Valdoxan 25 mg and Dipiperon 20 mg. What can I tell you ? I feel like newborn The fear therapy in the clinic was awesome. Have learned more than in the last 9 years and will do a behavioral therapy. For the last few years, they have only been doing depth psychology with me … completely wrong. But how should one know that as a layman? I got no side effects from the Cipralex … I’m now in control of the fears … can fool around and laugh again. Shopping … shopping alone … sleeping alone at home … driving … is awesome I tell you! With the weight …. because I have an eating disorder (binge eating), I can not say so.In the clinic I lost 8 kilos despite Cipralex. Here at home I eat different again and also more … there is a kilo up. But in my opinion has nothing to do with the medi * Incidentally, I was told in the clinic that I can get rid of this disease COMPLETELY and WHOLE, when I work on myself and do my anxiety exercises. It’s really hard to bear, but I’ll do it to finally get quality of life again * Hold on – we can do it * grin *

    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 …

    I’ve been taking fluoxetine for almost three months now and coping well with it. It is important that you adjust the dose indivudell also adapts the daily. I did not get along well with 40 mg in the morning, because it caused me considerable side effects, such as headache and blurred vision, the limitation of sensory perception and the onset of nausea were already immense. with another distribution of the dose in the morning and at noon or in the evening I was obviously better. mentally I benefited from the drug. Despondency and forcible ideas became apparent and I became more active again. What has remained of side effect is a disturbed sleep rhythm, sometimes muscle twitching at night and heat flashes. I find that bearable, but I’m psychologically more stable and can work on the causes better.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    The drug works reasonably well against depression and anxiety, but various side effects such as muscle pain, nausea and libido disorders, like almost all antidepressants, are more of a postponement of the symptoms that did not exist before.

    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 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 Burnout syndrome; Depression

    After diagnosis of depression caused by burn-out treatment by 20mg fluoxetine. After 7 months no significant improvement in symptoms, especially the physical, noticeable. Falling asleep, very lively dreams, nocturnal sweating, vertigo, lack of drive, difficulty concentrating, tiredness, nausea right after taking the drug. Weight loss also not recorded;). My doctor had actually promised me that about 1.5 weeks after the start of receipt, I would feel as if a switch was put in me, so that in the morning, for example, I could easily get out of bed. Unfortunately, the desired effect did not materialize and now I am switching to another drug to control the depression.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    Initially extreme nausea and gastrointestinal discomfort. To endure but anything but pleasant, followed by constant fatigue and constant restlessness of the arms and legs. I myself would at the beginning of the intake min. 2 weeks off. The nausea is not as bad as it was in the first week of taking it, so I am in good spirits that the side effects disappear completely, and the tablets help me to cope with simple things in life again.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    Due to the fact that I only take this medication for 3 weeks, I can not record a detailed report on it. I take 20mg daily. I can say that already after this short time a change for me is noticeable. This manifests itself in a certain ease in talking, which is otherwise a big problem for me. However, there is more and more indifference, which can lead to far-reaching consequences in my current situation, where I write my final exam tomorrow. Among the countless possible side effects, I can only complain of mild nausea, stomach ache in the first 7 days and a persistent dry mouth, which I believe so it can live.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    Tavor I take only in an emergency! (I have tabs 2.0 and take 1-6 mg) In the beginning I felt so bad that I took it every day for about 2 weeks. Side effects I have just noticed that the next day, my hands were trembling. The tablets work wonders. However, I know they are addictive, so I do not want to recommend these tablets to anyone. I can handle the pills and always be aware that they are addictive. Therefore, I only take them in an emergency. I had now 2 weeks or longer, no in the house and that was easy. You should always pay attention to yourself during such applications! I take fluoxetine for half a year. (In the first few weeks I took 10 mg, meanwhile 20 mg) The first 2-3 weeks I had, after the morning intake, severe nausea and no more hunger throughout the day. I have increased, but the reason was not the tablets! What I notice today is that I sweat a lot through the pills. Especially in places that always sweat sweaty anyway, so the face. Nowhere else have I dared to go, it was so bad. Now I always take the pills in the evening, because usually I sweat extremely hard the first hours after taking them. Whether fluoxetine really helps me I’m not sure. I notice that I’m on speed, if I increase the intake times. Urge to move, wriggle, teeth bite on each other. Therefore, I leave it at the 20 mg. I also noticed that I talk more with other people. Especially with strangers. Partially without dot and comma, without thinking too much. I’m usually very calm.

    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.
