Wondering a few things

just wondering my doctor started me on fluoxetine. wondering how long it takes for it to start working? for my anxiety and panic attacks? for a month before i was light headed.... faint feeling.... legs gonna give out.... feeling you name it where i was only moving around 30 mins a day. now i am in a week into the fluoxetine and moving more around now and being light headed not as bad... but wondering how long before this stuff really kicks in?

Be prepared for doc to change doesage and/or brand as you get better.


thanks :) so most likely lower the dosage?


Not to begin with.

Has your doc done a thyroid TSH test?


i got all my blood work done. came back normal. don't know if there is another name for TSH test but they did like 50 blood tests
