Hi everyone, I made the decision last week to go back on anti-depressants because I am really having trouble coping. I've taken Prozac before, 60mg a day for about 7 years. My doctor prescribed 10mg to start and this morning was my first dose. I have an issue with the base of my esophagus, it constricts when I have anxiety. It happens whenever it wants to happen which has stopped me from eating in restaurants. I would never accept a dinner invitation either. I don't eat dry food anymore, it always has to be wet or full of fat and creamy so it slides down easier. It's the anxiety related to ptsd I have that makes it worse because I could be feeling fine, then uh-oh....food is stuck. Which of course makes the anxiety worse and the constriction tighter...terrible cycle. When it happens I try to breathe deeply, hold my arms up and distract myself until the food "drops". Anyway...this was on my mind this morning before I took the teensy tiny little pill. I kept telling myself that it's smaller than a macaroni noodle, what am I worrying about? Guess what? It got stuck...I panicked SO BADLY. Logically I know I'm not choking and IT WILL DROP...it stayed there for 25 minutes and I felt it drop down. It took me about 3 hours to calm down, I had to keep myself ultra busy to try not to think about it. I called the pharmacist and she told me that I should try to increase my magnesium, which is a natural muscle relaxant. Has anyone tried that? She also told me Prozac comes in liquid, though she's not sure she can get in here. She's looking up to see if I can open up the capsule without messing with the effect. I have to say, I'm already feeling nervous about tomorrow. I don't know how to relax...but she told me worst case, it takes 30 minutes to dissolve, that still doesn't comfort me though!! I hope all this craziness is worth it and it helps me get through this rough patch!
