Was wondering if anyone else has had this combination and had any issues.
I was diagnosied (again) with major recurring depression, general anxiety and social anxeity about 5months ago and was put on prozac. currently taking 40mg daily. although sometimes I skip on the weekends and seem to do okay. the amount of stress I'm going thru or seem to be going thru seems to directly effect my depression
About 2-3 months ago I was put on Ambien, but only for occasional use. I mainly take it on Friday and Saturday nights since I can sleep in some the next morning. Thursdays recently too. But around the same time I started the Ambien and 2months after starting the prozac, I started having more issues and the meds werent working as well and getting stressed out much easier and all that
also noticed I started having slightly odd cycles. 3 months ago I had a cycle with actually almost no PMS, it was wonderful, but then the next cycle started greyish spotting 3 day before hand, next cycle more spotting but a week before hand and bleeding lasted half the time. this time spotting started a week week beforehand again, but cycle was 2-3 days early (possibly due to pap smear) and now I'm on CD8 and actually still having a tiny bit ot spotting and never have this late before
When I had my pap smear the gyn noticed right away I was having spotting and fairly heavy for that time of the month...
the mood swings and confidence issues and insecurity have been something else recently given I take prozac and it use to work. it just seemed to stop working so suddenly or working as well suddenly, but then I thought about it and realize I started taking Ambien around the same time
Has anyone else had issues with taking prozac and/or Ambien and having these type of issues
