Give them a bit more time Blueberry and see what happens with them. As you get them into your system, things could start to settle back down. They need a good few weeks to get into your system, so by the time you go for your next appt, hopefully you'll have a better idea of how you are with them.

Anti-depressants can take up to 8 weeks to properly get into your system, so stick with it until you next see your GP. Fluoxetine is known to cause anxiety in some people, so I would ask your GP about that if you start to feel more anxious.

I hope you start to feel better soon.
