I started taking 20mg of Fluoxetine 5 weeks ago. I feel less sad and worthless and am no longer crying all the time. I am also worrying a bit less but am still unable to switch my mind off at night to sleep. I still feel exhausted all the time, de-motivated and negative about the future. Just wondering whether the dosage needs increasing or whether this is as good as I’m meant to feel.

i think doctors tend to wait a while before increasing dosages to see how people get on ,a increase might be worth mentioning to your doctor though x

Actually, I'm going to tell my psychiatrist to lower my dosages of lamotrigine and quetiapine. I have treatment-resistant depression and I think I'm not getting any benefit at all from these meds. Ideally, I'd like to go off of them. There's also some side effects I hope will lessen with a lower dosage.
