Omg im fed up of this now! I went to see my Dr yesterday and she told me to stick with the fluoxetine at least until after christmas as it will get better and maybe put me on a higher dose if things have not settled down, ie the side effects. Im on 20 mg and only been on them since 9th October (i thought it was longer!), im feeling low, i get bad tremors of a morning which last about half an hour, tinnitus, a lump in my throat as if something is stuck in it, and the overwhelming feeling of loneliness is horrible, i feel as if im a burden to my family and feel guilty all the time, like ive shut myself away from everyone and i get paranoid. Iv got no friends, my b/f doesnt know how to help and i feel as if my daughter is fed up of me. Will i get better, im really fed up of feeling like this. I went on the fluoxetine to stop my anxiety/panic attacks, but i feel it has made me worse with depression, although the anxiety and panic have stopped. I know i should push myself to get out more, but ive got the cant be bothered to do anything mood. What is wrong with me? I dont want to be miserable anymore, i feel im going to push everyone away, who ever is left in my life, cos im so miserable.
