Is this Anxiety?

Hey I’m a twenty two year old female. For the last three years I have been bulimic. Eventually I realised I had a problem and sought help from the doctor last week. She prescribed me with 40mg of Fluoxetine and is hoping to up the dose to 60mg and has referred me to a psychiatrist. I have only been on the drug for 8 days.

However, last night I was lying in bed and started thinking these abnormal crazy thoughts that I’ve never thought before. Thoughts like. What if I’m crazy and I don’t know it? What if something happens to my family? What if I commit suicide? Not that I want to but I just kept thinking these things. Then I began to panic because I was thinking these thoughts. I had a horrible feeling of terror in my stomach and I started sweating, I felt a bit confused. I can’t explain it.

These feelings keep coming and going and my mind keeps going back to weird thoughts. I read that a side affect of taking fluoxitine is anxiety. I’ve never suffered from such before and I was wondering if this is what I am experiencing.

I never took my medication today as I’m so scared of what I’m thinking and feeling fearing that its because of the Fluoxetine. Have I gone crazy? Please someone tell me what this is?

VH,

It is possible that the Anxiety could be due to the Prozac.

It made me very anxious and my GP took me off it when I started to have major panic attacks to the point that I became agoraphobic over the course of a couple of weeks. Not a good period in my life.

But, I strongly suspect that mine was a very adverse reaction and the truth is that many, many, many, many, more people take it without any such problems.

The only advice I can offer is to go back to your GP and discuss what your experiences and feelings have been since you started the medication.
