I've been taking Prozac for a few weeks now. I thought it was working, but last week my psychiatrist upped the dose from 20 to 30 mg. The first day I took the higher dose I had a massive all day and night headache. Then the second day I took 30 mg I had the headache and I was highly agitated, feeling very nervous, very anxious and jittery. I also have little red spots on my stomach and back that have been coming for the last few weeks, but I'm just now making the connection to the Prozac (at least I think so). I've gone back down to 20mg and called my doctor, but I haven't been able to speak to him yet. I'm still feeling slightly nervous and jittery, still have a little headache and the red spots are still there. Has anyone out there ever had these types of reactions to Prozac?
I don't know what we'll try next. It's exhausting trying to find the right medication to make me less anxious - and in the meantime the process making me MORE anxious!
