Flouxetine/Prozac or CBT ? Or both ?

Hi, posted this on postnatal depression forum but thought I'd post it on here too for some advice.
I've just been to doctors & been prescribed flouxetine for the third time. The last two times I've not taken them & thrown away the prescriptions. My baby is now 9 months & I'm still feeling low at times but think it is definitely worse when I have pmt & due to tiredness. This is when I feel very anxious, can't sleep, very down & sad. I've also been recommended cbt which I can start in 2 weeks. I'm just writing on here for advice. Do I start the flouxetine first or wait to see a counsellor. I felt so bad last week & upset but this week after my time of the month I feel ok though still not 100%? I'm so unsure what to do ? Anyone else been in my position ?

I know it's scary thought taking tablets but once you past the first two weeks you will. Optics a difference. We all (IMO) feel like this before taking any tablets I'm on sertraline but had the script a while before I took them. Wish I took them sooner.
