    Hey there,
    I've been on 20mg of prozac since last October and didn't notice any side affects when I first started them.
    On Monday I got my meds upped to 40mg daily.
    Now, I've always been lazy :laugh: But since Monday I actually CANT stay awake. I've been sleeping all night and half the day.
    I've also had a headache since Tuesday.
    And I'm sweating loads.
    Just wondering if these are likely to be side affects from the upping of the meds?

    I was yawning constantly for the first days on Zoloft. That was wierd! Do all SSRI have sleepiness as a side effect?

    I used to be on 60mg on Fluoxetine with no side effects. My medications got changed only after I overdosed on it and landed in the Emergency Department.

    used to be on it but it just made me feel worse. then i got told if i took an od on them i was gonna have a run in with a baseball bat. on citalopram now but its not working anymore so maybe i should go back to prozac, or just flush them...
