Well, Im lucky to be home.

Took a trip to the Psych Unit today. They let me go home. They do not understand why the OBGYN would put me on such a strong medicine for someone who has NEVER taken a antidepressant before in their life. They told me to just quit and it will stay in my system 48-72 hours. I am scared it has made me crazy, I keep thinking the craziest things. I dont know what to do :(

it just made me very depressed and anxious and sick. i didnt know what else to do. i have to see a psychiatrist. they dont understand why the ob prescribed me such a strong medicine in the first place. i was never depressed or suicidal. i only got severe anxiety around my cycle, all the other times it was always managable. the doctors just care about pushing pills on someone is all.

teemarie, Prozac is one of the strongest SSRIs. An OBG should not be doling out antidepressants. I hope you stay with a psychiatrist being the one to prescribe those kind of drugs. Each hour that goes by will bring down the level. I hope you will be okay til then. xx

I just keep having thoughts of how Im not good enough and Im so depressed even though Im NOT

teemarie, sounds like a chemical depression which should get better as the drug leaves your system. I am so sorry. That shows you how the same dose of drug can affect each one of us differently. Unfortunately, it wasn't the right drug for you. Keep that in mind when asked by hospitals or doctors in the future what you are allergic to. Add Prozac.

Is there someone that could be with you while going through this? xx

When you are suffering with anxiety you will get negative thoughts it does not mean you are suffering with depression but wait and see what this appointment brings and when they have spoken to you they will be able to tell you the best therapy to help , it will all come good again , just try and take each day as it comes , don't think to far ahead x
