Does anyone feel as if your perception changes throughout the day? Help

Does anyone else feel this way? Its as if your perception and your understanding and opinion on things changes throught the day. Has anyone else expireinced this?? It is by far one of the most annoying withdrawal symptoms. Im already 20 months out of a cold turkey prozac w/d can someone please help me and tell me this WILL stop one day? I dont know how much more of this is i can take.

I wouldn't advertise your phone number on a public forum. Also, your "w/d symptom" just sounds like being normal to me.

It was friendly advice and very good advice. Also, it's a public message board, you don't get to pick and choose who responds to your posts.

Re: Does anyone feel as if your perception changes throughout the day? Help

I know what you're trying to say. I'm assuming you mean above average change in perception and yes I get it too, I can go from quite low and sad, to scared, to angry and then ok again in hours...and I don't mean like a normal day. Obviosuly perceptions change throughout the day, I'm talking about intense changes, not what I normally experience.

Oct'11 to Nov '12 20mg-10mg
March'13 to Feb'14 9mg -4mg
Feb 7/14-4.0mg

Thank you Rhonda and Aberdeen, i think you know what I'm talking about when I say perception change. And Jr 1985 no this is definitely not "normal" perception change, they are drastic and not at all how i was pre prozac. And no one is talking about posting their information on a public forum Rhonda said she'll "email" me her number not post it, read it again.

Rhondaj posted her phone number only LCrawford67 removed it. Sorry, I obviously misunderstood what you meant about perception change, no offence meant.

I go through times where my mood changes from one hour to the next. I find it baffling. Could be hormonal too.

Re: Does anyone feel as if your perception changes throughout the day? Help

i feel that way sometimes when i'm on the drug, sometimes i'm perfectly content and then within a couple minutes i'm extremely irritable and aggravated by really small insignificant things but thats probably partialy brought on by drowsiness and lack of sleep...and then the depression hits because my anxiety isnt alleviated as much as i feel it should be... anyway just hang in there axis, i don't know maybe try some relaxing techniques or meditate for a little bit or something, and do things you find pleasurable, avoid stressful situations/people etc. things will get better
