Yes, I went off Prozac about 10 days ago. I went on it in June to try and curb the binge problem. Yes, at 20 mg it made me feel better, but I was still bingeing. I tried 40 mg and it made me not care about anything. I felt like a zombie. I went back to 20 mg, but then I noticed that I was gaining weight. I went up 20 lbs from June to August. Even when I was able to string together 14 clean days, I never got back to my pre prozac weight.
Am I depressed? Are some of these overwhelming feelings Prozac withdrawal? I don't know. Things are tough right now in my life. I will know better in a few days. TOM is ending and I hope to get a few solid days on plan.
I have tried 5htp but I am not sure it helped. Maybe now that I have Prozac experience I will see the difference. I still have the Mood Cure book, which I will re read.
Thank you ladies for your concern.
