IS THERE A DRUG THAT CAN DO WHAT DULOXETINE60MG WITHOUT CAUSEING YOU TO GAIN WEIGHT? ## Hello, Vickie! How are you? What are you taking it to treat? This information would better enable me to answer your question. For example, if you're taking it for anxiety and/or depression, then I'd suggest asking your doctor about Prozac/Fluoxetine. It is classified by the FDA as an SSRI antidepressant and is well known to not cause the weight gain than many others do. As a matter of fact, it has sometimes caused weight loss, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth.

Are there any prozac users with a good response please let me know I have tried so many meds for my severe anxiety depression fears paranoia anhedonia and medical related PTSD looking for success stories please I started at 20 for 2 1/2 weeks now on 40 for four days and no relief please help ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? With Prozac, it actually takes about a month, before it starts having much of an effect and it can be as long as 3 months, before it reaches its full efficacy level in your body. What else are you taking? Have you considered taking more than one medication, at a time? From some of your posts, I've gotten the impression that you're treatment resistant and, in such cases, multiple medications are often needed. ## I've taken numerous meds for depression/PTSD:...

psychiatrist reference in Knoxville Tn
8 Replies RSS
Im from out of state and am trying to find a psychiatrist in knoxville that can write my prescriptions. I can have my info and medical records sent or faxed. I take Prozac, Valium and Tegretol. Someone please help ## Hello, Shayne! How are you? It might be easier to set yourself up with a new PCP there and then have them refer you to someone. Plus, the PCP could at least make sure you don't run out of the Prozac and Tegretol. The Valium, however, will have to be prescribed by a specialist. The FDA classifies the Valium as being a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Prozac is an SSRI antidepressant and its typical...

Possible release in 2019? ## @citygirl, Thanks for sharing this article on the advancement of GLYX-13. I think as long as Evanston can continue to utilize this molecule while minimizing the types of side effects that plague most prescription drugs, they'd find much success expanding on it's application for depression. The research backing up their experiments gives hope to those with treatment resistant depression and in my opinion may be a viable alternative for patients seeking a safer approach to managing these symptoms in the long run. I'll be looking forward to more updates as things progress! ## I meant to share this blurb from Chicago Magazine, as well. I have completed 20 treatme...

Prozac ruined my life
9 Replies RSS
I was on Prozac( fluoxetine) for about 8-9 years starting when I was about 14 years old. I'm 23 now and for about the last two-three years I started getting weird side effects and feelings that I never had before. I would feel spaced out, disoriented, out of body, dizzy, angry, light/visual disturbances and really wishhy washy.. like bi polar feelings and suicidal feelings. I had never had these ever before. I was on the Prozac for severe anxiety and panic attacks. I never had depression or bi polar feeling ever in my life. And I always would get dizzy spells and just feel SOOO spaced out and out of body literally so freaking weird. So when these symptoms started happening I went to numerous docs and they all found nothing wrong physically. Blood tests, ..check up all normal. So I d...

Prozac Withdrawal & GI Issues
1 Reply RSS
So I made the mistake of going from being on 40mg of prozac for a year to 0 mg cold turkey around Nov. 24. Withdrawal symptoms didn't kick in until about 3 weeks later when I had terrible diarrhea in the morning. Since then, I've had daily GI upsets including diarrhea, painful trapped wind at night, indigestion, abdominal cramps, etc. Along with this (or maybe caused by these symptoms) my anxiety has come back with a vengeance and I've had tons of crying spells and constant flu like symptoms. About 7 weeks through being off, I couldn't take it and went back to the doctor who prescribed me on 20mg of Prozac which i've been taking for 3 days now. I know it's relatively soon to tell any difference, but my GI upsets have been continuing and I read that withdrawal sym...

Im on both methadone and prozac,the problem i am having are awful jerks or spasms when i take them as prescribed.I have tried several other antidepressants on methadone but still have spasms or violent jerks.When i tell the doctors they dont have an answer,Help! ## Come on Verwon,i need some info on the problem of spazms or jerks while on methdone and antidepressants. Help ## Unfortunately, while it is a common problem reported by many people, I really don't have any answers as to why this happens. It's been reported with many antidepressants and Methadone. It may be due to the fact that some of the antidepressants raise the levels of Methadone in the body. What dosage do you take? You might want to try asking your doctor about making a slight adjustment, so you take a little le...

prozac 20 for 10 days switch to zoloft 50
3 Replies RSS
Was not agreeing with prozac panic attacks. Yesterday seen my doctor and said zoloft work much better for anxiety and panic. Been on prozac 20mg for 10 days. His plan is to take zoloft 50 every morning and prozac every other day for three more times and quit. That would mean on three days I would take zoloft in the morning and prozac in the afternoon. Would that be a problem or would it be better just to stop the prozac cold turkey, ## Hello, Izzy! How are you? How long have you been taking the Prozac? They are very similar medications, according to the FDA, both are SSRI antidepressants that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes, plus both treat the same conditions. Thus, a switch should be pretty smooth going from one to the other, b...

I was on 10mg and just went up to 20mg 5 days ago. My jaw hurts, sinuses are blocked and my mouth feels sore like I ate too much salt. I also feel foggy and off. Is this normal? How long will this last? ## I just got on prozac 20mg. 4th day today i have all the same symptoms as you besides the jaw. its all normal yoga girl. The weird things is that its hard to get mad. That's a plus i guess. I hear that the foggy feeling get weaker as time. no worrys ## Yes, I can assure you both that such side effects only last for a few weeks, it was about 3 weeks for me, whenever I adjusted my dosage. They do improve and eventually go away completely. If they don't, then it might not be the right medication for you. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and wei...

prozac making me anxious
1 Reply RSS
I started prozac a week ago I also have been taking latuda for about a month and lamictial for over a year. I noticed there's no.way not to that my anxiety is 1,000 x's worse since I started the prozac. I get so anxious for NO reason whatsoever and my heart races. I was wondering if anyone else experienced this and if so how long does it normally last. This is horrible. I was taking it in the am but switched to night and its crazy but it seems to be worse and lasts about 6 hours out of the day. ## Hello, Steph! How are you doing? Yes, Prozac can due that and it usually lasts about 3 weeks, before it eases off and the medication reaches its level of therapeutic efficacy. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight loss and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Headaches using prozac
1 Reply RSS
Ive been on 40mg. of Prozac for twenty years and would sometimes get a slight headache and would go off Prozac for a few days and go back on it Recently my headaches have gotten a lot worse. I'll go off Prozac for a few days and when I go back on it my headaches are still bad. What should I do.? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? I am very sorry about the headaches. Prozac can cause headaches as a side effect, but that's usually only for the first month or so, until your body gets used to it. It is not normal for them to occur after you've been on it for awhile. You may just be getting occasional headaches, then actually made the situation worse by assuming they were from the Prozac and going on/off of it. Have you consulted your doctor about this, yet? Do you take any other medi...

anxiety medications that won cause drowsiness
1 Reply RSS
my question is I was on lorazapan for anxiety but the drowsiness got me in trouble is their any anxiety medication that won't cause drowsiness. I told my Dr. not to prescribe it for me anymore. My question is, I need something, is their anything else I can take. ## Hello, Eileen! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've had. You may do better with one of the SSRI antidepressants that can be used to treat anxiety, such as Prozac or Zoloft. They've both been successful at helping many people with anxiety, but since you take them all the time, your body gets used to the medications and the side effects, such as drowsiness, wear off after a few weeks. Other side effects may include nausea, dry mouth and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? The medication doesn't become toxic, once expired, but the liquid could turn rancid, which can cause nausea and vomiting. The best thing to do, in the future, would be to dispose of the expired medication.

Prozac and itching
3 Replies RSS
I was removed from an antidepressant coctail 5 years ago and put on Prozac. It works for depression, but I have developed a horrible itching problem which I wonder if may be related to this drug. I have had diagnostics for everything. No rash. Just an increasing inability to tolerate any irritation to skin surface without literally months of horrible itching. I am being tortured to death. Any suggestions/help? ## How long has the itching been occurring? Do you take any other medications? Have you consulted a dermatologist? Itching can occur with Prozac, but it usually happens immediately, not after you've been on it for awhile. ## I have been to every kind of physician. None can figure this out. I itch 24-7. Carry around ice bags and bottles continually. It is getting worse, althoug...
