I've been put on new meds I'm afraid of taking them.

I just got put on Fluoxetine 10mg and Clonazepam 0.5mg and I would like to know other people's experience with it. I took them today and I felt tired and I couldn't really talk and I didn't have very much balance plus I read it helps with OCD and unwanted thoughts. So have anyone with OCD ever took this pill which is basically Prozac and did it help with your unwanted thoughts and OCD?

They do make you feel tired and dizzy, but this will wear off once they get in your system

Hi Anxious.

If you persevere with the fluoxetine you will find it very helpful,however there can be some side effects but they disappear when the drug gets fully into your system,about 4wks it has helped me enormously to cope . I hope it does the same for you.Sorry welcome to the site :).How impolite of me.

Hi, thank you replying I really really appreciate it. But I was wondering what site you saw me own? I'm confused on that part lol but I'm afraid of being around drugs and meds too so this is really hard for me to really take it but after I read it helps with OCD and unwanted thoughts I quickly took them because I didn't want my life to be crippled by OCD. I have a thought right now that makes me feel confused and lost and makes me rethink everything about my life. I just want my old self back but I was wondering what unwanted intrusive thoughts do you have? If you don't mind ask. If not that's ok I completely understand.

Ignore me from this morning lol I was on here before my brain caught up with me , I thought the bit when I said from the other site you were someone else lol sorry for the confusion

I have had OCD for years , it is a form of anxiety , if I dont carry out my rituals , I think something bad will happen to me or my loved ones , it drives me crazy , because some where in my head I no its rubbish , but the other part believes it , but its all anxiety

I do work on it though & over the years am starting to realize if something is going to happen it will , but I am waiting to see a phycologist & thats the first thing they want to work on my OCD

You will get to feel like your old self again , sounds like you have caught this quick , I have left mine for years

I wouldnt re think anything about your life till you feel better if it was me

Keep coming on here & talking

Still its lovely to meet you lol even if I did get muddled up

Meds WILL help you. But you will have to tolerate the side-effects before you get better. Stick with it, you will be amazed at how they make you feel after a couple of weeks. I HATE the idea of taking medication to control my mind, but I would not be here today without them. Resist if you want to, I did that for five years before understanding that there is a chemical problem with my brain.

Thank you so much for replying. I did take it yesterday and today my psychiatrist put me on new meds to help me with all my problems she put me on low dose because I had a bad experience with Zoloft so she decided to put me on Prozac. I really hope this work. My life is hell right now and I'm hoping this will fix it.

Prozac made me feel quite elated, I was buzzing

When you say buzzing what do you mean about that?

I felt really happy, lively and full of life. Work colleagues noticed the difference

That's so awesome! I wish it will do the same for me. I really need it. Are you still on it?

No that was a few years ago. Look after yourself

They do call it the happy pill

I just hope it will help me because I'm at the lowest part of my life

Give it chance to work, it can take up to 6 weeks to get into your system. Hopefully you will start to feel better soon, it worked for me

I pray it works. I'm going through a lot now.
