Has anyone else ever switched from one drug to another without weaning off the first one first? I am currently undergoing a transition between Lexapro (generic form) and Prozac (generic form - fluoxetine) and I have panic disorder and I suspect GAD as well. I've only been diagnosed by a PCP and have never seen a psychiatrist. I was on Prozac in the past for mild anxiety symptoms but then it got worse, I started having recurring panic attacks in Feb 2016 after being on the Prozac for a little over a year. No idea where they came from, but it was an awful experience, that first one. I thought I was dying and called 911 because a I was alone at home with my then 8 year old daughter. I'm a single parent, so I was having all these fears of something happening to me and her being alone with my unconscious or (God forbid) dead body...and not sure what to do. So the 911 dispatcher knew I was having a panic attack and calmed me down, the paramedics still showed up and I was ok by then, and felt like an idiot. But honestly, I had never experienced anything like it before and was terrified! So, what I'm looking to know is... what are everyone's common side effects of Prozac? I am experiencing a lot of bruises all over my legs.. I bruise easily as it is, but it's really bad. I have at least 10 bruises between both my legs right now. I am not taking anything else along with the Prozac. Does anyone else have this problem and what can I do about it?
