If any of you have read my other threads, you will know what last month I made a joint decision with my doctor and pysc that it was time for me to come off my medication or at least take a break. this thread here Well as the month went on my systoms come back quick and fast. i was suddenly having more and more urges to self harm again, and at some points even having thought on suicide. So today, I had an appointment with my pysc and I told him how I was feeling. So he has decided to put me back onto some anti-depressants. But this time I am on some thing I haven't been on before. Fluoxetine. So really all i'm asking is... has any one here been on these them selves? and what should i expect? (my pysc says that these are commonly used and have been proven to be most effective in cases like my own). And I would also like to say, that if any one ever thinks they are ready to come off their medication, please do think over it, as it is the meds that will props be making you feel better. Always ask for advice from your doctor/pysc (whatever) before trying to come off medication. Soo yeah.... Has any one been on Fluoxetine before?
