So I use to take prozac but recently went off it...about 2 weeks now. I've noticed since then I get this weird anxious feeling only when I'm trying to fall asleep. it's kinda a feeling of not being able to catch my breath and it's very uncomfortable. I don't know why it's happening. i don't "feel" anymore anxious then usual and other then this being off the prozac has ot been problematic. I wanted to stop taking it as soon as I could because I know the baby becomes dependent on it as well and goes through withdrawls when it is born if you take it your whole pg. Or maybe it's not the being off prozac at all that is the issue and it's something else? I also take zofran in the form of a pump 24 hrs a day because my nausea is so bad. Besides that just baby asprin and rx strength folic acid.
Any thoughts on why this is happening and how to make it stop?

I don't know why it's happening but you should go to your doctor. It might not be an anxiety attack, it might be an actual medical problem and you can't be too careful right now. I know you want to be off your prozac but for some people being off it is more hurtful to your baby then being on it. I hope you talk with you doctor as soon as you can.
