as some of you know i am on prozac but about a month ago my doc uped it to 60mg a day.i went to my other doc that i am dropping and she asked me how things are going and she told me thats a really high dosage. is there something i should be worried about? i dont wanna be on anything addicting for my nerves so thats why my doc just gave me a higher dosage. i am much happier now and i basically just dont give a !**@! about things like i use to. i use to get mad at the littliest things. but my anxiety/panic attacks seem to be the same. maybe i should just be glad i am not depressed anmore. i also have get all nerves about germs now and i have to spay everthing with lysol even at work. They tease me and call me germ contoller.i use to be a cleaning freak like this but now its back and in full force. well i am done rambling now
Prozac has its good points and it's bad points. Some people get really good results and others have really bad side effects, even worse than whatever caused them to seek help in the first place.
I am a germ freak myself. I clean everything with Clorox wipes and Lysol. My former room mate used to tease me about cleaning with bleach and stuff, but she was a filthy housekeeper. She'd let dishes pile up for days and days. She never cleaned her bathroom...UCK!!! Don't even get me started on dog hair...Ewwww Hence being an ex room mate.
Who cares if people call you a germ freak. I can think of many things worse than being clean. But, If it bothers you than maybe there is something you can take that will help you with your temperment and your anxiety/panic attacks. Paxil is a nice choice for many people.
Glad your depression is under control, but I don't think that med helps with anxiety. They told me Zoloft was good for both depressionand anxiety, but it made me freak out. I take Ativan, .25 mg-.5 mg prn up to three times a day for the anxiety. If I had my choice, I'd suffer with depression to avoid the anxiety, but I guess we don't get to make those choices! I'm glad you are doing better though. I don't think the PRozac is addictive (I took it in College) but they did tell me to come off slowly. I didn't, though I just stopped taking it one day. Not that i reccommend that, or anything, but nothing happened to me.
Can't help you with the germs issue. I am a neat freak in a family of people who have blinders on when it comes to mess. I can't stand it most of the time,, but I am learning to deal.
