Slow titration up on Prozac....

My dr is being very cautious and slowly titrating me up to a good dose. In the meantime, I'm just waiting to really feel the effects. I think I'm in for a long month. Any good experiences with this med?

Started Prozac after a misccarriage and previous meds (Lexapro) not working so well. 20mg and 30mg didn't feel so good 40mg now is ok. I feel like I have some really manic days and some really bad days. I don't love this medicine but i'm trying to stick it out.

What dose do you take? I am going up to 20 mg. I've been on high doses of antidepressants in the past and don't know if this is considered high. Hoping for no sexual side effects....

I take 20 mgs. I don't have any sexual side effects like I've gotten from other meds, in fact, I don't really have any side effects at all. I sure hope it works for you.

Thanks. I got sexual side effects from cymbalta, lack of drive and sensation

I took Prozac for 10 years and it worked for me.  It's worth the wait.
