I have been on Prozac for three days, just took my third pill a minute ago. However, I got quite a strong anxiety attack at work this avo and as a result left work early. I took Prozac 10 years ago for 8 months and dont remember having anxiety when I first started taking it, however I wasn't working then, so would have been at home alot when I was starting on them. I want to give them a chance but I can't afford to be feeling like that at work. I am not telling my employer about my depression etc as I don't think this will work in my favour. anyway, my question is really has anyone else had this experience- how long will the side effects last as my body gets used to the drug? I am off sat sun and monday, and could take tomorrow off, but wouldn't be able to take any other time off. should I persevere with it or is it likely to get worse? I didn't have this effect when I took it before. Feedback would be much appreciated.
