dipak Says:
Just started taking Fludac 20. One tab in the morning. The doctor has prescribed it for one month. Recently I am suffering from anxiety and obsessed with any past event and try to re-create the situation and tension builds up . I am also getting less sleep very frequently. I am 65 years of age. Would request you to brief me about the side effects.

Fludac contains the active ingredient Fluoxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant.

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and weight gain.

Unfortunately, not every medication works for everyone, some of them can even cause the opposite effect of what they are supposed to.

Have you spoken to your doctor about this, yet?

It may not be the right medication for you and you may need to try something else.

I have been using fludac 20 one tab last 20 days. Not much improvement noticed in the anxiety during the day. Will it take more time ? Should I talk to the doctor ?

yes take it for minimum of three months continuously and for good outcome you may have to continue for six months, followed by tapered dose over next three months...but if you stick for about six to nine months relapse rate will be very low otherwise relapses will be very high

dipak, it generally takes about 4 to 6 weeks for most medications to reach their full effectiveness in the body. Remember, these ones are working on a chemical in your brain called Seratonin, so it does take some time for them to fully work.

You'll know when it's doing as much as it's going to do for you, when any side effects you are experiencing, such as the drowsiness and nausea, have hit their peak and start to wear off.

If at that point it still isn't helping, then you will want to contact your doctor, because this might not be the right dosage or medication to help you.


Are there any other questions?

Sourav, Fludac contains the active ingredient Fluoxetine, which is an SSRI antidepressant and they are well known to cause sexual problems, as side effects.

Have you contacted your doctor? This may not be the right medication for you to use, if it is causing that severe of an issue.

I recently gave birth via c-sec post which i was prescribed fludac. Soon after taking fludac, i developed anxiety/panic attacks for which i was put on ativan alongwith fludac. It was fine while i was taking ativan but once i stopped ativan i have had anxiety attachs again. Took a second opinion & was asked to stop fludac completely. seemed to have worked since i feel perfectly fine. want to know if stopping fudac will cause a relapse later.
