Prozac review by 30 year old female patient
They have both caused serious problems in my life. I know that that is not true and we all need to take responsibility okay. Along with CBT fluoxetine has given me my life back truly, for a while I never thought I would be okay again or be able to get back to feeling normal, I convinced myself that I was having heart attacks and strokes at 18 years old because of the panic symptoms and I ended up at urgent care several times because of this.
I don't know how I went so long without it. I haven't had any near-panic attacks, and my anxiety feels much more manageable. Some people say to stick with the Benzos cause they work faster and better,that does seem to be true but for me the side effects I get are like drinking alcohol,clumsy,dizzy and in- balanced upon standing and bad judgment and mild forgetfulness.
