    Hi so I started on 20mg Fluoxetine (Prozac) almost 3 weeks ago now and I’d say I don’t really think they’re doing anything. The first few days was more of a placebo effect of me thinking they’re working and then it just went back to normal again.. anyway I’m really struggling right now with my...

    At a loss...

    Does any one else experience anxiety around their partner? Sometimes when he’s away I feel fine. I don’t have anxiety. I still have these thoughts about if I love him or not. I still have compulsions. But I sometimes want him to go away so I can not have the anxiety and obsessions I have around...

    Medications that work for you

    It’s funny I see people mention seroquel. I was given it for insomnia. I took it for seven years until I started having side effects (tardive dyskinesia Tardive dyskinesia - Wikipedia).

    Social anxiety ruining my life

    I'm sure people post about this a lot but social anxiety has ruined my teenage years and now is ruining my adult life as well. I can't function like a normal person and it kills me.

    Prozac+Wellbutrin=Negating side effects?

    Hi there! I just joined here today and was hoping some of you could answer some questions that I have. I have dealt with depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I have been taking sertraline (generic Zoloft) for about 13 years now, but it's lackluster at best. It ensures that I...

I find I'm way more outgoing, impulsive (in a good way!) and I feel excitement again. I also sleep a lot longer which isn't too bad. BUT! I happen to have a heart...
