I could have written this post. Except I am taking Prozac and not Lex. It has been a little over 3 weeks for me too. I have a lot of physical symptoms that are still with me (and maybe even worse than before I started). I am filled with dread and think something must be terribly wrong that the doctor's cannot find. I am also taking xanax (.25 mg a day). I went a couple of days without it and felt really bad. I don't want to have to take xanax everyday. That is why I started the Prozac in the first place. I have heard it can take up to 6 weeks before you feel better so I am going to try to stick it out. Good luck.
Thank you both for your replies. That is one of my fears is that it won't work for me and the doctor will want to start me on something new and that gives me anxiety in itself having to try yet another med with all those side effects! I am going to try to stick this out though and see how I feel at the 6 week point before I try something else. I figure I'm 3 weeks into it and I might as well give it a full shot. My appetite is not great, but I do manage to eat since I don't want to loose any weight. I'll keep you posted. Yes, Dawn, I was supposed to have a doctor's apt. this week but didn't get around to scheduling it so maybe next week I will - at that point I would have been on over 4 weeks and we'll see what they say. I'll let you know. Hang in there both of you!
Hi Natty!

I wanted to let you know that it took me about 3 weeks to get my appetite back, and that was after changing my dose to 10mg. I just passed week 6 and just recently was when I noticed a big difference in my anxiety. I'm no longer getting it and am more relaxed. I hope you stick with it and you might want to up the dose. Take care!
