I went on fluoxetine (20mg/day) about 6 months ago and it has changed my life for the better. I am still the same person but this drugs has allowed me to be myself openly. I tried alternating 20mg one day/40mg the next but this was too much for me and caused some unwanted side-effects such as extremely impulsive behaviour. As of today I am beginning to taper down and I am confident that I will be able to live without it within another 6 months.

Anxious but ambitious. Depressed yet energetic. Straight yet playing for both teams. Shy yet somehow outgoing. Confused?....Me too!
