Medication

I have decided to take medication for my depression. I am already taking anxiety meds. I tried Celexa before, I only took it twice but stopped because it made my heart beat super fast.

My doctor prescribed me Prozac. Has anyone ever taken this? Did it help you?

I take Prozac 20 mg right now. Ive been on it for about 5 yrs, but I also take other psych meds with it. I would say it works ok. I dont have any side effects from it, but I did when I went up to 30 mg.

Does your doc know about your heart rate on celexa?  I don't  have depression, I am bipolar and prozac was really bad for me, it triggered a full blown mania.

People say Prozac helps me. I have no real negative side effects long-term, though I did have some heart-pounding and anxiety the first 3-7 days. I started at 20mg. Maybe starting at 10mg would help? When I doubled from 20mg to 40mg, I had no issues.

Good luck!
