Background: I've been on either Zoloft, Lexapro, or Celexa for about ten years, mainly to treat anxiety. Early this year, I became majorly depressed. While feeling better over the Winter, I cut my Zoloft in half to 50mg (from 100mg, which I had been on for a year). This may or may not have triggered my depression. I went back up to 100mg of Zoloft and didn't see a relief in symptoms, and felt that the Zoloft was no longer working for me. My doctor put me on 20mg of Prozac six weeks ago. I feel the Prozac helped me to be able to function again, athough I'm still not back to normal, depression-wise. Doctor increased my dosage of Prozac to 40mg 1.5 weeks ago.
It feels like the increase in dosage increased my anxiety level and obsessive thinking (apparently, I have OCD, as well). Did anyone notice an increase in anxiety with an increase in Prozac? Did your increased anxiety go away after a few more weeks? I'm not getting alot of relief from the Prozac, which I feel like I usually got a lot of relief from the others. Should I try another drug? I'm just 6.5 weeks into Prozac...
