I would love to hear what people think about that too Mystic. I just started on generic prozac (actually sarafem, same thing) and was told to take 20 mg from cd 14-28. I can't figure out how that works out. Does it stay in my system the other 2 weeks or not?
Also it is making me so tired all day long. I am thinking of cutting the pills in half so I can have only 10mg. I am only 105 lbs and have a fast metabolism so drugs really affect me strongly and I hate walking around all day feeling like a zombie. Honestly it's not really better than spending the two weeks in major pms in my mind. My DH and Mom keep telling me to stay on it and try it out for the full two weeks, but I keep wanting to stop because of this stupid zombie fatigue. A mother of two young boys doesn't have time for low energy, kwim?
I took my first dose today. I decided to go all month on it after day 5 of my cycle yesterday and getting caught up in whirlwind of tough emotions.
I talked to a friend who is a counselor who has taken prozac for times when she needed some help getting through some rough spots.
I'm feeling like that is what I need right now and I hope it helps. I will keep updated.
blessings all and happy fall.
