I posted a while ago about the fact that my GP would only offer me SSRIs for my social anxiety. She prescribed prozac and I've been taking it for nearly 3 weeks, but it's having some horrible and quite distressing psychological side-effects. Recently I went out for a friend's birthday with 3 other people who I usually feel quite happy and comfortable around, but that night I felt completely detached from everyone and I didn't care about talking to them, although I hadn't seen them in months. I feel awful because I think I put a downer on everyone's evening but I just couldn't pull myself out of it. I was determined to take all the pills I had when I got home and hope that I wouldn't wake up. When I got in I was so tired I just fell into bed and woke up in the morning feeling extremely anxious but less depressed. I have never had thoughts like these before, or at least I'd never had such strong intentions to actually do anything about them. I'm so glad I didn't do anything but am terrified that I'll suddenly feel awful again. Has anyone else had any weird psychological side-effects from medication for SA?
