    I would suggest that you talk to your doctor about this. I also couldn't tolerate prozac very well. It didn't make me manic but it did make me extremely impulsive and suicidal, to the point where I almost did something fatal. I never took it again and eventually got changed to another med. SSRI's do not agree with me in general.

    When I was on this it made me very very anxious. I guess everyone is different but yes I hope you can talk to your doctor about this. Please get help x

    My doctor told me that anti depressants are bad for bipolor.
