I came off Prozac because it sucked. Nothing happened at all except I lost my mojo in the one place I can use it. Bed.

Just thought I'd share that with you all. Fluoxetine can shove itself where the sun doesn't shine for all I care. And my psychiatrist pretty much told me that it's useless for me.

Now I'm on propranolol, a beta-blocker. My psychiatrist gave it to me to help with my palpitations and tremor but it's not going to do anything to help me feel better. But that's cool though.

On the bright side, I got into a ridiculously prestigious and stuck-up university with hundreds of people who are just as socially awkward as me! Yay! I'm going to be in huge debt when I leave but that doesn't really bother me yet because I get the maximum grant the government can possibly give, topped off by a huge loan which doesn't need paying back for a few years after I leave. And that means I get a new therapist as well. I liked my last one because she took me out for a meal once and payed for it out of her own pocket which was nice and she gave me her personal email as well which she said she wasn't meant to do but I'm not sure that she was qualified.

Thats great man, congrats on everything. Especially quitting Prozac/Fluoxetine, that stuff will fry your brain slowly. Stay in school unless they teach you bullshit then its not worth the debt :)

FACTS ABOUT FLUORIDE

- Fluoride is a waste by-product of the fertilizer and aluminum industry and it’s also a Part II Poison under the UK Poisons Act 1972.

- Fluoride is one of the basic ingredients in both PROZAC (FLUoxetene Hydrochloride) and Sarin nerve gas (Isopropyl-Methyl-Phosphoryl FLUoride).

- USAF Major George R. Jordan testified before Un-American Activity committees of Congress in the 1950’s that in his post as U.S.-Soviet liaison officer, the Soviets openly admitted to “Using the fluoride in the water supplies in their concentration camps, to make the prisoners stupid, docile, and subservient.”

- The first occurrence of fluoridated drinking water on Earth was found in Germany’s Nazi prison camps. The Gestapo had little concern about fluoride’s supposed effect on children’s teeth; their alleged reason for mass-medicating water with sodium fluoride was to sterilize humans and force the people in their concentration camps into calm submission. (Ref. book: “The Crime and Punishment of I.G. Farben” by Joseph Borkin.)

- 97% of western Europe has rejected fluoridated water due to the known health risks, however 10% of Britons drink it and the UK government is trying to fast track the fluoridation of the entire country’s water supply.

- In Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg fluoridation of water was rejected because it was classified as compulsive medication against the subject’s will and therefore violated fundamental human rights.

- In November of 2006, the American Dental Association (ADA) advised that parents should avoid giving babies fluoridated water.

- Sources of fluoride include: fluoride dental products, fluoride pesticides, fluoridated pharmaceuticals, processed foods made with fluoridated water, and tea.

why would they make a drug that is designed to harm people? I seriously doubt that the people in charge of drug companies/scientists etc are all complete meglomanics hell bent on causing people problems. IMO we quite simply cannot produce psychiatric drugs atm without side effects, and that can pin point certain areas of the brain. and all that crap about them putting fluoride in our drinking water, i cant rememeber the last time i had a glass of water out the tap. i just started an anti d though so i guess thats why im saying all this!

Prozac made me apathetic, numb. Which is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Celexa too. And I had the worst withdrawal side effects ever from Celexa. In fact I think all SSRI's are pretty numbing. Not good for me.

Celexa made me feel like a deflated balloon, no joke. like i had nothing left in me. I pretty much despise all SSRIs, they never worked for me. Also, the fact that I have a serotonergic dysfunction may be another plausible factor as well.

That's curious,because i'm on the exact same boat as you are.More,I have that problem with all kinds of anti-depressants,not only with the SSRIs,just because of a serotonergic dysfunction as well.
This sucks,because i find myself real depressed sometimes.What real helps me with the depression is to eat an orange everyday,believe it or not.The things we learn by ourselves,lol.
