I've been on and off (more on than off) fluoxetine for nearly 15 years (Blimey, that sounds terrible) and I'm just feeling like I'vs been really up and down in the last year. I seem to feel wellish for a few months, then rubbish again. I've tried increasing the dose from 20mg to 40mg and also tried 30mg too. I felt awful with the higher dosage, like an anxious zombie, very odd. Anyway I always come back down to 20mg and four/five weeks later again I feel ok. But just 'ok'. Has anyone else experienced this. I just feel like I'm on a rollercoaster. I'm 42 so no idea if it could also be linked to perimenopause. Has anyone switched ADs after such a long period and what has your experience been? Thanks. Any advice appreciated, I'm so fed up with feeling so rubbish x

How long were you on 40mg for? I felt incredibly anxious for several weeks but it's now starting to wear off.

I was on a higher dose for 6 weeks. I just felt numb. But then again that's how I'm feeling now ��
