Prozac Withdrawls?

I was on 20mg's of Prozac for 4-5 weeks. I started taking it because of PTSD, PMS disorder, MILD depression, anxiety, panic attacks & an overwhelming feeling.

After 1 week of taking it, I began feeling a bit better. At week 2 I was feeling REALLY good. Almost all of my problems I had starting using Prozac for started to get better. At the end of the 3rd week I started to feel like something was off... I started shaking uncontrollabily, having a rapid heartbeat, the anxiety returned, I began to feel overwhelmed again, having WAVES of one panic attack after another, and a deafining ringing in both ears.

I called the on-call doctor 1 week ago who told me to stop the Prozac all together. 3 days later when I saw my doctor he was very surprised the on-call doc had taken me off of it. I asked him if I would have any withdrawls and he said I would not. I called the on-call # last night and this morning because I was experiencing heavy shaking, horrible anxiety, panic attacks, shortness of breath, a hot feeling all over, a feeling or dread, depression & elevated heart rate. He told me over the phone that I can't possibily be having withdrawls! My FAMILY doctor, my therapist, & my neurologist ALL told me that I AM having withdrawls. Being that my doctor doesn't believe I'm having these withdrawls, he won't help me with them. Everything seems to be getting worse too it seems. I guess because it has a long half-life and was in my system.

What do I do in this situation? All of my other doctors say they can't help me because it's not their specialty. My family doctor said he can't help me because I need to talk to the above prescribing doctor. Am I or could I be having withdrawls?

Dear Sir / Madam,

I am a Kinesiologist who treats dis-ease with energy healing, hence I am NOT a Medical Doctor and CANNOT give you this type of advise.   I  suggest you contact an appropriately qualified Medical Practitioner to address this issue. 

Also I suggest you Google for side effects and withdrawal from this drug.  There is often a lot of this type of information online and on Wikipedia.

Ask your doctor to read the Doctors Manual on the side effects of Prozac.  Unless you have

already received help from another source, make sure you yourself can read this information on Prozac.

Otherwise ring up the British Medical Association and ask them to advise you.  It is very important that you

follow this up.
