Anxiety help

I've been dealing with postpartum anxiety and depression. My doctor put me on Prozac I've been on it for a week now. I'm feeling as if it has made me feel worse. I try to fall sleep but I get anxiety laying in bed. Then when I do I wake up in the middle of the night with bad anxiety that makes me not want to fall back asleep. I feel like I can't breathe enough, I start shaking it's a feeling like I'm going crazy. Is this medicine making me like this has anyone experienced this as well?

Wow I felt like I had my old self back 3 months of using it while preggies suddenly atterex was not available in south - africa any longer I was so upset. I got so anxiety and physically sick because I couldn't get my medication. Was the hardest pregnancy ever. I got through my pregnancy and after delivery a week later went to the doctor he did tests again alk was well with me. So anxiety was the cause again doctor put me on yelate 30 mg must say it worked great no pains at all. Felt good just the no sex drive , loss of apetite and insomnia was not so great currently on nothing doing the selfhelp methods as well as oils and herbal stuff
