Hi,
So, for many years, I have suffered with severe anxiety, panic disorder and depression. I have been on many AD’s and I found that Fluoxetine 20mg eased me. I was always busy and could live my life with ‘fewer’ worries. 4 weeks ago, I felt I’d completely lost my head! Massive brain fog, panic attacks every 10 minutes, zero sleep, sweating all day, huge feelings of dread and ALOT of unwanted negative thoughts- which completely took over! I have a partner and 2 small children with a massive support network and nothing was helping me/taking my mind off things. I decided to start taking 40mg Fluoxetine, as previously discussed this with my doctor. Some parts of the day, I can feel ok and then bam! Back to feeling awful with negative thoughts!! I have been on 40mg for 3 weeks now and was wondering if anyone had been through this situation and how long it takes for the upped dosage to start working? Thank you in advance xx

Hi. I take 40mg of fluoxetine and it took a few months for it to make a difference for me. Everyone is different though 🙂
