I've been taking it again for a while, ramping up a bit as we get deeper into the SAD season. ( I don't have the dx, but December is my least favorite month, by far.) I was prescribed 10mg, but I started with 5, then alternated 5 and 10, then up to 10. Even with 5 there was definitely an improvement. Between the short days and stress at work*, the Prozac and the anxiety and depression have been neck and neck. Sometimes one is winning, sometimes the other. My default mood is sort of ok most of the time, but I'm really lackadaisical about getting things done, and I'm spacier than normal, and sometimes I get kind of anxious. Trying to decide if I should ask for a dose increase or if the lengthening days are going to take care of it before the extra Prozac does.
Thanks in advance.
*plus my Dad died in May, which probably started me down this path again
