The Emperor Posted October 29, 2009 Share Posted October 29, 2009 I've been on 10mg fluoxetine for about two weeks now for my anxiety issues, and then last night I did the smartest thing I could eve do, and I know it's just brilliant, and I went and googled "prozac controversy" because I had heard such a thing existed and I wanted to know what the hell it was. Yeah, turns out, people on Prozac were killing themselves, each other and all that shit, probably family pets too, I didn't read too many of the horror stories, becuase they were pretty unsettling since I am on this drug. So yeah, I just would rather live with shitty anxiety that makes me a tweaky, jumpy shut in than go out on a shooting spree (well, it would probably be more like a stabbing spree since I don't have a gun or anything) I joke, but seriously, this is one of my worst fears, and that scares the shit out of me that people on this drug killed people after initiating treatment with this drug. I REALLY would rather not kill people, and I don't feel like killing people, so I'm probably okay. But really? Does anyone know anything about this or been on a drug that made them THAT out of sorts? That's scary shit to me, I'm about to bump up my dose to 20mg today and am hoping my friends won't see me on the news later this week. Why does that shit happen? I've read the little warning about becoming suicidal, so I knew that was a possibility(ESPECIALLY after taking sertraline) but homicidal? I know, people NOT on Prozac or SSRI's kill people too. There just seemed to be so much fous on Prozac in particular on this topic, is that because it was "the first" SSRI (I put that in quotes because I don't think it's true, but that's what they say) and therefore, the first drug for people to act crazy on or what? Anyone have any input? I'm a little nervous about it, I'm not going to stop taking it or anything, unless I become homicidal of course, but I suppose there's probably a point of no return there. Ugh, it's just disturbing to know I guess. Any comments? I'll even take "You're an idiot for asking this" seriously. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
