    So I haven't been taking my fluoxetine for a while now - it makes me lethargic, tired and emotionally 'bland'. I suppose this kind of self-sabotage can be put down to the illness - but I'm getting to the stage that I need some kind of support - not in danger yet - but I'm always lapsing back to low states...

    How can I go back to my GP and talk about meds without her thinking I'm just gonna drop whatever she suggests after 2 weeks?

    I would say your gp will understand that while stopping your meds was not the wisest thing, considering the side-effects, it is understandable you did. Lots of people stop their meds and I would say your gp is used to it. She probably will prescribe you something different. Dont hesitate to go see her and be honest.

    Yea, go see your GP and explain, she'll change your meds for you, anti d's are trial and error.

    Good luck.
