Prozac success
Nov 13, 2005
... hey - yes I take 40 mg of prozac - started at 20 and worked my way up to 40.

... Hope, Do I feel hopeless? Actually hopeless is a mild term for what my wife and I both felt when it first began. If it wasn't for our Faith in God and some help from Church I really do not know what would have happened. I myself, felt something around me totally out of control that I did not feel we could contain. At one point I feared the loss of my small business and... (98 replies)

... Hi, I take 100mg wellbutrin once a day, for obsessive thoughts and general anxiety disorder. I've had great success. Now I seem to be slipping.

In the past I have tried paxil and prozac (prozac did nothing for me, and the paxil got rid of my... (0 replies)

... ding it causes confusion in those who don't understand. Talk to your doctor about it.. And also talk about your meds with your doctor.

But that does not mean that one of the lower would not be affective. Interesting how different evryone is :) (3 replies)
