I've just recently started working with a new doctor and therapist for managing my anxiety and depression. I took celexa a while back and absolutely hated It! It stopped my panic attacks but made me so depressed, and that was back before I really even felt depressed. I've been reluctant to using medication besides my ativan as needed but my therapist recommends Prozac. Lately the panic attacks have gotten better through working with my therapist but the depression has just recently hit me so hard. I wake up with overwhelming and physically painful sadness and I'm either not interested in anything or irritated by everything. I always get overly anxious about the side effects of any medication so I just wanna hear how Prozac has worked for others.
