    I am on prozac right now and I find it is making me even more depressed then before so I am waiting for my Dr. to figure out a new med to put me on I was wondering if there are any suggestions

    Prozac made me more suicidal. 3 years later I'm still trying to find a med that works for me.

    first off i want to :welcome: you to the forum here. i hope you find it as beneficial as i have. share as you feel like.

    as far as medication is concerned i have been on all kinds of meds and few of them have worked, and when they have it's always been short lived. this is why i am doing ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) now. ECT has been the most helpful. but as far as meds are concerned however, i found that celexa was the most helpful one i had tried. i'm still on it in addition to the treatments. this is just my little old opinion. i hope you find the one that works for you. i should add that not all people experience they same difficulty i have with meds. for most people meds are a success and i hope the same will hold true for you.

    please take care

    Thank you both for the replies and thank you for the welcome to the boreds! I know that the meds won't cure this but I just need some help and the prozac is doing the same thing to me making me feel even more like I just can't go on anymore. So far the forum here has helped and it is nice to find a place I can fit in and know I am not alone!

    Keep fingures crossed they put me on zoloft now they wanted to up my dose of prozac and I really didn't like that idea so they switched me

    meds rarely work right away, at least thats what they said to me, can be weeks, can be months >.< and they might not work, but i find it really hard to judge for myself if they work or not
  8. im on prozac, iv tried 5 ssris; what i want is nardil or valium i want to zone out and not feel anymore!!!!!!!!! the prozac is meant to give you perspective, obviously you need to be discussin y u feel depressed in the first place but the serotonin is supposed to make you feel you can get up and do normal things.
