I really didn't want to go on an SSRI but I think its important to work with your doctor and they can advise on the best one they think, dosage and help you deal with side effects. I started with 10mg of Prozac, now for the past couple of weeks I've been t 20, and im supposed to go up to 30 this week. I also have Atavan to help but I rarely take it. I haven't really noticed a lot of differences yet but then again I seem hyper focoused on the side effects which have not been fun. But I'm hopeful any day now it'll start taking effect.
