After years of all the prodding and poking and medication and surgery for endo and ovary pain. Plus been on fluoxetine for a year for anxiety and it has helped me but now been told i need a higher dose of sertraline. I had to have a 3 day break before starting the sertraline. Those 3 days i thought would be tough but they were ok and then on the day i had to start new meds i felt like a zombie again. With the thought of having to go through prostap and HRT in January, with horrendous side effects then with the thought of a hysterectomy after. Sod the meds and all. I'm fed up. It's now been a week without fluoxetine and I'm more awake then ever. Yes I have still had pain but have gotten through this with pain pills, heat pad. I know my pain will get worse as it does when I'm ovulating and menstruating. If there are other people out there that can get through this without all the harsh medication then surely so can i right.!! Just trying to find another way forward.....
