I've had depression for some time and was prescribed fluoxetine a few months ago. In the second and third week of taking it I experienced what I can only describe as mild euphoria and a sort of agitation- not being able to sleep, restlessness and the shakes- which was not unpleasant because of the euphoric feeling that accompanied it. Since then this has subsided and even though I am still taking it, it is not really having an effect and I am almost back to how I was before I began taking it. I was wondering if anyone could explain all this to me, becuase it doesn't seem, from what I've read, to be a typical experience of taking an SSRI. I was also wondering if anyone could reccommend other antidepressants that might be effective for longer than a couple of weeks and wont give me the shakes.
