I'm new...

Hey, I'm Meghan, and I'm 15. This past summer I was clinically declared depressed. I've been taking 20 mg of Prozac everyday in the morning, and so far it's been working. Not much cutting, very little thoughts of suicide... but I do have some complaints.

First of all, is there anyone out there who, when they first started taking anti-depressants, felt overly happy all the time, like you couldn't stop smiling? That happened to me. For a couple weeks, all I could do was smile. It was pretty annoying. I call it the honeymoon phase of medication, because you feel all good and happy with the world. Then when I got used to it, my emotions kind of settled back down.

Sometimes I'm embarassed that I'm actually a happy person now. I mean, I have more confidence and I'm more outgoing. I can't stand perky people, and sometimes I find that I'm being perky myself! Of course I'd take my meds versus being depressed, but the emotional rollercoaster is excruciating.

That's all for now.

i am in the same place. with all of that. even the hating of perky people....and i am just starting in on your same dose of prozac...haven't reached the 5 week mark, so it isn't in full effect or whatever...i am excited by the happy colors of the pills tho...
Mine are just blue and white. What color are yours?
pale purple and spring green! i was very excited when i saw them....well, about as excited as a clinicaly depressed teenager midway through a breakdown can be....but yeah, they are pretty. they remind me of those plastic easter baskets filled with cellophane-y grass...
You're so lucky!!! I love that color combo. Next time I get a refill, I'm going to ask for pretty colors like that.
i think they are 10s and that is why, cause i take 2...which would seem to equal 20...they are also the generic it says something long and confusing on the bottle....
I have the generic kind too, but I only take one. DAMN I wish I took two. Then pretty colors would be going down my throat everyday.
