what dosage are you on?(Original post by SmallTownGirl)
I don't think I had any side-effects when I started on fluoxetine. But now I very quickly got to a point where it seemed like the drug wasn't working. But my doctor won't change my meds or increase them.

I want to go to the GP because I think I have anxiety problems. I'm don't know how they diagnose it though. Is there a possibility that they wouldn't believe me? And do the drugs actually work, or are they just a placebo?

Hopefully yeah, glad yours have worn off . Had a funny moment this morning when sitting in Subway with my mum - felt all dreamy/derealisation kind of - but that wore off quickly.. Quite happy as it's the first time I've gone shopping in ages, the anxiety is definitely not as bad...

I'm on lofepramine (210MG) and olanzapine (10mg)
I've been on flueoxetine (60mg),citalopram (40mg),trazadone (400mg) and setraline (70?mg)
I think the lofepremine is starting to work but only been on the increased dose for a week

I've been on duloxetine (60mg) for about a year now and it really has helped me so much. I wish that my depression had been taken seriously when it first developed 15+ years ago. It's taken me this long to finish an educational course and get into uni, as before I'd start with high hopes and end with ribboned arms.
I just wish it hadn't taken a serious suicide attempt to be able to get help.

Fluoxetine was a disaster, but have been on citalopram for 2 years and am slowly reducing, overcoming hurdles as and when etc!

im ment to be on Antitripaline (i cant spell it)
20mg i think.
I was on them cos i got stressed at out at college with work and all that. i did try some street drugs first but my family got pissed and worried so i went to the docs got on them. felt low for a while and just decided to stop taking them 1day and aint had em since. I feel no different from when i was on them to be honest, i feel like im a really depressive person. I think il be like this for the rest of my life really. And i do kinda accpept it. or maybe when a special arrives in my life maybe it will change. who knows. but i kinda accpept that this is how it could be for a while maybe years.
