Hi All, Have been on 20mg fluoxetine since beginning of December. I found it worked almost straightaway mentally and felt brilliant. I did suffer a lot of nausea and was shaky and struggled to sleep but I could handle it because I felt so much better mentally. Then everything balanced out, my appetite came back and I thought I'd cracked it.
However, since approx April, I have felt so tired and lethargic almost as if I have been drugged. I am gutted as I was doing so well. I also have underactive thyroid so thought it was this but I had a blood test and everything OK that side. I started to take Flu every other day and I think this has helped slightly with the tiredness but I can feel the depression hanging on the sidelines again so I am in total catch 22. I don't want to stop taking them but I am struggling to function some days. Any other people feel like this or have been through this? I would appreciate your views.
