    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 *

    Fluoxetine for Aggressiveness; Psychological instability; Depression

    Significant improvement: better assessment of previously depressed situations (did not notice the difference until after taking the medication), emotionally less depressive rashes down, less to 180, increase drive, could move me in social situations much more relaxed, cessation of active suicidal thoughts. Side effects: palpitations, heart rhythm disturbances, sometimes chest tightness when lying down, often awake at night for 2-4 hours (stupid if you have to return to the office in the morning …), thus also gaining weight (controlling eating disorders at night was more difficult), partly over-spirited mood.

    Fluoxetine for Depression

    I’ve been taking fluoxetine for almost a year against my moderate depression. At first I took 20 mg, I think for three weeks. Since I did not feel it, I increased to 40 mg. At this dosage, I felt more stable for another two weeks at times, but my mood fluctuated throughout the day. My doctor said that said that the drug was right for me, but the dosage was still too low. I increased to 60 mg. After about 10 days, I had a few days extremely good mood, but that put down relatively quickly. My mood stabilized. I became less sensitive and became more aware of things. Although I did not do more than before, but no longer accused me of this inaction. The drug was not euphoric (only the first few days), but built a kind of protective barrier around me, made me more relaxed. My mild social phobia became weaker. After three months, I reduced to 50 mg to find the lowest dose for me. It worked. Now, after almost a year, the effect seems to be weakening. I cry more often without a real trigger, am again easier to unsettle and often just want to pull the blanket over my head. I am not as depressed as I was before starting fluoxetine, but often distressed, self-doubting, impotent (I would reproach myself), irritable and sensitive. I will now increase to 60 mg again. Side effects: From 60 mg, I was much less hungry and also decreased. Now, with 50 mg, I have gained a few pounds. I’m not sure if that’s because of the drug;) I feel dizzy at times, especially when I’m getting up or something. I am often shaky and jittery. At first I had orgasmic disorders, but that has subsided after a few weeks. I have a headache more often than before. Also, my short-term memory does not seem to work so well anymore, I’m more bullish than before and forget halfway what I wanted. From time to time I had the feeling my heart would race. Since I do not know this differently from the depression and in general always slept a lot, I do not particularly like how much I sleep. But it’s probably 9-12 hours.

    In May 2007, I was diagnosed with a Generalized Anxiety Disorder …. at that time I was only treated with Fluoxetine 20 mg … which also worked well … had only possibly still panic attacks … In July of this year, I had the fluoxetine completely deposed … I thought I would be better and I would manage without the medication … quite clearly wrong thought … because for about 3 weeks my panic attacks are back …. the fluoxetine was set back .. .. first 10 mg, then 20 mg … I can not say exactly what happened … whether it was due to the drug or because I have too much puree …. I was of the opinion that my attacks have become worse are …. now for about 6 days I take in the evening 30 mg mirtazapine … because I could sleep badly because I constantly heart rate, trembling and Musclezuckungen had or still partially have …. for about 2 days I have the feeling as if I have a fever … (have not measured any there) I will st really hot …. and have such a burn on the skin … but have no rash …. am constantly trembling … Muscle twitches …. fear and panic …. I just do not continue .. I hope this is somebody who has possibly made such experiences with both medikamenten.ich also do not know how I should proceed now …. can not call my doctor as it is weekend. I would be glad about helpful answers.

    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 …)
