I just asked my doc this yesterday. I’m in my 70s and am up to date on all pneumonia vaccines. He says none of them offer protection for COVID or its resulting pneumonia.

I have a 42-year-old daughter with Type1 (since age 9). I worry constantly about her, even if she gets a cold … but COVID?!? She’s on a continuous glucose monitor, and well controlled. She has 2 healthy children. She and her husband are ER nurses. She is home with the kids but he is still in the hospital setting. Careful as they are, nothing is foolproof. Anyone out there with Type 1? Sure could use a larger support system these days if only to handle my own anxiety! Thank you!

Is that dosage working well for you? If so, I’ll ask to up mine a notch. And do you need the cl every day to feel well?

What is a “therapeutic” dose of Prozac? I recently went from 20 to 30 mg and don’t feel a difference. Talking about going to 40 in a month of I still feel poorly. I too back this up with Clonazepam as needed (2-3 times a week). I don’t want to control anxiety, I want to cure it. I also faithfully meditate, which certainly helps. I have no depression thank goodness.

Hi Colleen and thank you for your encouragement. You’re absolutely right … and the older I get, the more important quality of life becomes. Be well and safe during these tough times!

Suz55: Thank you for your prompt reply, understanding and empathy. Yes, anxiety is utterly miserable, and the symptoms so frightening. But it’s so great to have all the support we have here. I don’t feel so alone. I’m so grateful for that! Stay safe and well everyone!

I just increased Prozac from 20 to 30 in the hope of better controlling my anxiety. If not, we’ll try 40 mg. I’m in my 70s, so what matters most to me is quality of life. Anxiety lays ruin to that. Not to mention the pandemic we are all dealing with right now. Does an increase in this med also take awhile to kick in? Has anyone felt more anxiety while adjusting to an increase of Prozac?
