Hi All.

After a five week long black depression i am finally climbing back out of the black hole.

I finally got some one to listen to me ( hooray ). I took a trip back to my G.P last saturday ( they now open saturdays, can you believe it ) and explained, rather told him i want to change my medication as i had been feeling like shit for the past five weeks and he agreed to it ( paitent 1 - Psych 0 ). So i am now on a gradual withdrawl from the fluoxetine, taking 40 mg per day for two days, 20 mg one day and then taking 20 mg every alternate day untill friday when i'm back to see my G.P.

I'm off to london this saturday to see my mother. was only going for the weekend originaly but she has talked me into staying for a week which will be a nice break. :)

Well done Colin - I'm in awe of your assertiveness skills - keep it up :clap:! Do you know what they are considering as an alternative to fluox? Have a great trip.

Thanks honeyquince.

I'm not sure what the new meds are called, i'm never any good at remembering long scientific words - they all sound like gobledegook to me :tea:

Hi Jamesdean.

Don't be afraid to speak your mind and let them know how you feel, if need be, kick their ass and show them who's boss :rules:

Hope all goes well for you :D
