After seeing the same Pdoc (Dr F) for about 8 years, it got to the point where he had run out of medications for me to try and didn't know where to go from here. So I ended up seeking a 2nd opinion (with Pdoc's blessing) & have now got a new Pdoc (Dr M) (who works out of the same place in the city as my previous Pdoc). I was on Pristiq (desvenlafaxine), however Dr M has decided that Prozac (fluoxetine) might be a better AD for me in terms of my anxiety & mood switches (I'm BPII). So this morning (after 13 days Pristiq free and on Dr M's orders) I took 20mg tablet of Prozac & so far am alright (I always worry when I take new meds for the first time!). I also take 150mg of Seroquel XR (Quetiapine) at night & over the next few months, Dr M wants to wean me off Seroquel & give Litihum a try. This is mainly due to weight issues, plus me finding seroquel good, but very sedating. I also take a maximum of 5mg every other day of Valium (diazepam) for my anxiety (Dr M knows about this) So the short story is: How have other people found Prozac? has anyone take it with either Lithium or Seroquel? Has anyone found it useful for anxiety &/ or panic attacks???
