I was just proscribed prozac for OCD/Anxiety and they say the risk of suicidal thought is significantly increased if under 25 so im nervous to start taking it, i've been on muptiple other base medications for Anxiety before (zoloft, celexa,lexapro,trazadone, remeron, and paxil) none of which have worked. I'm just wondering what benefits people have had from taking prozac.
It actually did more harm than healing for me. i had just found out that my girlfriend was cheating on me so I went into severe depression. I started taking about eight prozac in one sitting from my dad's medicine closet which would give me a huge high where I virtually lost control of myself and then went into a massive low where I became extremely depressed and suicidal :/ It was only because my current girlfriend (the one i have now ^_^) that i stopped taking pills and drinking. i love her ^_^
I had suicidal thoughts before taking them. But do NOT rely on the pills. You have to work with them, not against them. I was on Prozac for maybe a year or a year and a half. It is really good to help you with anxiety. You wont ever lose your anxiety problem. I still have mine, but its no where near as bad as it used to be. Just hang in there hun. Everything will be alright.
I never did have any negative effects. I had to take it cause I was emotionally unstable. It will help with depression and stress. It helped me a lot with concentration. And please dont feel like an outcast cause you have to take something that will help you. It is very normal to have to do this sometimes.
I have weird reactions to medications and everyone is different anyways. But, the prozac did a number on me with the suicidal thoughts. Didnt take it long enough to see if it would do any good. Of course it is supposed to lower anxiety, which is hopefully the benefit you should experience.
This really doesnt count. You're talking about substance ab*se. You could have been using c*caine or h*roin or whatever. The asker is not wondering whether ab*sing dr*gs is a good thing or not. Abusing any dr*g is not going to do any healing.
Thats very good lol. I have seen ppl hide and put a bunch more stress on themselves that is very unnecessary, b/c of having to take something like this. Its dumb.
haha i've delt with it my whole life it by no means makes me feel like an outcast, almost 20 and surprisingly comfortable with myself :)
