I still don't know what to think about Prozac. I've been on 10mg/day for a month and 15mg/day for a month (2 months total), and the last few days it has started to make me tired and just want to sleep and eat all the time. Of all of the SSRIs, this one seems the "weakest" of the bunch---and I've taken them all except for Luvox and the now withdrawn from the market Serzone.
Lexapro kept me stoned and zoned---sure worked good for anxiety though.
Zoloft was WAY stimulating---anxiety through the roof, diarrhea, insomnia, wired and "on edge"---but never got past 12.5mg/day---maybe I needed to take more, but was scared that all of the above side effects would multiply by several factors, so gave it up---maybe I should have given a higher dose a shot, IDK---
Celexa seemed like a "dirtier" version of Lexapro----just made me feel bad generally----it was hard to put a finger on just what didn't feel right, but definitely something wasn't right--
Paxil---one dose was enough of that one---THAT is one powerful SSRI--doc told me that too before I even tried it.
I'm starting to agree with one of the previous posters---all the SSRIs s*ck, and I guess some troopers are just lucky with them-- but not me, it seems--
