jpkoala Posted February 15, 2008 Share Posted February 15, 2008 Hi, I just started taking fluoxetine (prozac) for moderate anxiety and OCD. It's only been a few days, but I've started feeling extremely strange while on the drug. I am feeling EXTREMELY anxious and paranoid (to the point of not being able to attend class/work), and have a general feeling of being "keyed up" in all situations. Physically, my joints feel strange and I am sometimes shivering. I know that side effects can happen when first starting any SSRI, but are these side effects normal for prozac? Does anyone have any similar experiences/advice for me? I'm currently on 5mg but will be moving up to 10 mg soon (i'm pretty small). Thank you for your responses!
