I thought my circle of friends were the only people who had ever had trouble with Prozac and the like. There are SO many antidepressants around that nobody should put up with side effects from one of them. I'm all for treating depression by any means necessary, but sometimes they're way too quick to think Prozac is the one and only.
I am so sorry for your loss! Prayers for your comfort. Having a bad reaction to the SSRI along with the BP med is indeed scary. There are some of us however for whom an SSRI allows to live a more normal and happier life out of the depression that drags us down. It is true that SSRIs and antidepressants in general are over prescribed, there are people who need them in order to function normally.

Thank you all so much for your love and concern. Sorry it took me so long to respond, but I forgot the name of the site!!!?? Guess the memory problems aren't gone huh LOL The thing that gets me is that I was only on prozac for 1 month!! Guess I'm really sensitive to SSRI's. Anyway, I put the site in my favorites, so no more forgetting you guys!! Thanks again for your concern, it really means a lot.
