Hey, I am on 40 mg of Prozac and have already been through lexapro and Zoloft, and I feel like I am having weird symptoms with this med but at least I don’t feel emotionless. Also maybe a dumb question but how do I know if a med is actually working?

      Symptom wise, I am just moody and having trouble sleeping and staying asleep. I am also somewhat impulsive which is unlike me, and I use it for anxiety

      Honestly, every med I’ve tried feels different, so it’s hard to describe. I’ve been on Cymbalta, Zoloft, Abilify, Prozac, Seroquel, and Lamictal. How you know it works is if you notice a decrease in symptoms. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you are symptom free. Over time I know me and several others develop a tolerance and get used to the meds, so we need to switch or increase doses because it becomes less effective. Hope this helps

      What symptoms? Were you started on it slowly and stepped up to 40? And what are your on it for ? Depression, anxiety, OCD? ….
