Any moms taking Prozac for anxiety?

Does it work? Or are you taking something else to help with anxiety?

  • I take Zoloft and Klonapin for anxiety. It definitely helps but I've been on it long enough that we need to change something up because it's loosing it's touch and I'm gonna end up losing it in the grocery store or somewhere. That's were I tend to get the most anxiety.

  • I took prozac for a while for postpartum depression and anxiety, it worked really well, but I had to switch because the side effects were really bad, but I know people that didnt have any side efects too, it just depepnds on the person.
