Default Been one hell of a month

Since the 3rd I've had bad issues with my antidepressants being changed. I was on zoloft 50 mg but cut myself down to 25 mg and would forget to take it then was switched to prozac 20 mg had got sick . My zoloft was stopped before switching . I stopped taking the prozack then went back on the zoloft and was getting anxiety and headaches. So I stoped .found out I have an ulcer so I went back on the zoloft at 25 mg and am having racing thoughts and anxiety attacks. Is this normal when starting a antidepressant back to have raceing thoughts? I know I should have told the dr I wasn't taking the full amount of 50 but I didn't want to be judged. Was given lunesta witch made it worse so I stopped that. I see my dr Monday again since I had such bad issues my boyfriend God bless him has been so good and trying to help me though this mess. My dad has too.

Thanks for sharing this. From my perspective anytime one goes through medication changes it kind-of throws everything off, so to speak. (I don't personally ever recall experiencing racing thoughts when starting an antidepressant. But, of course, everyone reacts differently to medications so I would suppose it might be possible.) I think the important thing will be to be completely honest with your dr. regarding all that has gone on with you med wise. Best wishes...
Speak only if you can improve upon the silence.
