I was on Prozac for awhile about 8 years ago and here I go againI just started taking it two weeks ago for anxiety/insomnia and I'm waiting for it to work. I think i'm feeling worse right now than before I started on it. I think it was like that the last time....I felt really bad at about two weeks in.
Anyway, I'm stressing about everything.....having to pee a ton, IBS acting up and I feel SOO hungry, making myself eat whether I want to or not. Last night I was so hungry all night, that it kept me awake....wonder if anyone else has had that when starting Prozac?? My brother in law gave me an extra blood sugar meter he had, took it this morning and it was normal, even though I was really super hungry. Took it later in the day and it was 186, it did go back down, but now I am freaking out a bit ugh. I'm wondering if the meds are causing this or what. I'm trying not to let my mind run away with me, but I don't know what is causing what and then I stress.
My GP started me on the prozac and tamazapam and referred me to the behavioral health department. They are making me jump through hoops and my appt with that Dr is more than a week away. My GP gave me such a low dose of the tamazapam and it's not working that great. He gave me a really low dose of xanax before he changed me to the tamazapam. It's just so frustrating that they are so stingy giving meds to people that really need them. Just hoping the prozac kicks in soon and I feel better. Last time it did help me a lot, but it took awhile.
Sorry this has gotten long, I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else has had such a hard time getting started on their meds.
