In the meantime my family is completly fed up with the moodiness and i just wanna be me again! Princess Diana was a wild card to the royal family, but her openness helped others be open about their own mental health. I hope she raises the dose but hope it doesn't make my head feel any worse than it already does. I have been taking Lexapro 10 mg for about three years, then my mother passed, and many other crazy things in life twisted my head up.

Started by PopsiclesOctober 3, I hope Prozac will work for you. You are brave and fighting hard. Social anxiety can have a huge impact on your work as well as your social life.
How much were you on? I was taking the Prozac for depression; I was only somewhat agitated to start with. Stopped taking it gradually per my doctor's agreement to let me try life without SSRI's.
I take zoloft, another SSRI, for anxiety. It took me about a month before I felt the benefits and I need a really high dose to help with panic attacks. Now, I just started taking xanax for the occasional anxiety-producing situation. So that is another reason. Young people who use Prozac or Lexapro may have side effects, such as extreme thirst. Hi David, This sounds like a good change. Still looking for answers? Hopefully i'll start feeling some change soon,its a slow process but what can you do!
Either way, it's bad. My question is when switching from one SSRI to another; ie lexapro to prozac did anyone have to wean off of one to start another or did you just start the new presciptions immediately. Just waiting it out.
