Default Day 6 - Doctor Told me to Immediately Stop Prozac

Man, what a crazy few days. Since Monday I've been feeling very sick, very drugged, very not like myself. Then today happened...out of nowhere I went into a very deep anxiety wormhole. Crazy emotions, crazy thoughts, and most terrifying of it all...the thoughts of not making it out of this and how much better I would feel if I wasn't here anymore.

Talk about scary, I immediately rushed to my mom's house because I've NEVER thought like that before. I called my pdoc and told him what was going on and he told me to Immediately stop taking the Prozac.

Im only on 10 damn MG of this stuff, I hate that this happened because I was so excited to see it through. He told me it will all be out of my system in about 3-4 days and I should feel normal again. I hope he is right.

I am calm now and look forward to getting through this depression and anxiety through therapy and positive attitude like I did 5 years ago when I had this same type of episode.

I don't believe anti depressant medication is for me. I believe my case is very "situational" as Ive had a very rough year. I lost my grandmother in February, my best friend (boxer puppy) in March, my wife was hospitalized in May, and my father in law passed in May as well. The only blessing of this year was our first baby boy in March.

Now that I look at it, there was a TON of major life events that happened in a matter of months. When I had my last (and only other) episode like this, it was centered around another major life event which was me buying my first house and moving out of my parents house.

Sounds like situational depression to me and I'm excited to see how my first counseling session Saturday goes and her thoughts about it.

God Bless

Hi Jruck welcome to psych central. Sorry you had a bad reaction to the Prozac. Very smart of you to notify your pdoc. I am sorry you wanted this to work for you and it didn’t. Yes you could be experiencing situation depression are you seeing a therapist as that may really help.

Having a therapist you can talk things out with and sort through your feelings may help you slowly process everything you have had to face.
