Prozac Side Effects
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 ruined my life
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 making me anxious
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
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
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?

prozac 2 month out of date and i taken 10ml
I had Prozac fluxitine in my fridge and I went in the fridge and picked up the bottle I taken 10ml of it and it tasted funny and wen I looked at the date it was the wrong bottle it was 2 month out of date just askin for some advise really coz feeling abit sick now ## Hello, Serah! 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
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...

Prozac Vistaril And Methadone Cause A Positive On Urine Test
I am in a recovery clinic and I recently had a urine test come back positve for benzodiapines. I have taken none. I am going from DR to the lab and even the pharmacy trying to get answers as to why. But I have gotten no help. I am on methadone, prozac,vistatil, trazodone and I recently had a really bad touch of bronchitis and I took over the counter meds. Can someone help? Or tell me where to get my answers!! ## Go to the website below, it will prove by a pharmacist that yes you can test positive for benzo's from Vistaril. ## No, none of the medications you've listed have been known to cause false positives for Benzodiazepines. Learn more Benzodiazepine details here. Do you remember what over the c...

Prozac and weight gain
Dr. Just put me on 40mg. Never had it before. But I'm one who sufferes from severe depression, mood swings ect. When I'm depressed I don't eat, maybe for days. Will Prozac help turn it around. ## Unfortunately, no! Prozac actually may cause more weight loss, if you're under weight. It's prone to doing that, rather than causing weight gain. It may also cause dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. If you really want something that may help with appetite, you may do better with a different SSRI, such as Zoloft. Is there anything else I can help with?

I have just had my fluoxetine dose raised to 40mg - actually it's two weeks today. Is anybody else suffering with aches in the arms and feeling of real fatigue? ## Hello, Mabel! How are you feeling? Have things improved, yet? Those side effects usually last about 3 weeks or so, whenever you first start this medication or raise the dosage, but then they tend to taper off and things greatly improve. Other side effects you experience may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

on 10 mg of prozac
I have been on prozac 10 mg for 14 days and it has helped my anxiety and fear some. I take it at night and do sleep well but sometimes wake up in morning with anxiety and fear, will this get better the longer im on it. I started taking it because I got anxiety after my daughter was born 6 weeks early and is still in hospital. ## Hello, Sak! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. You may need to check into raising the dosage, so there is more to stay in your body for a longer period of time, or ask about splitting your dose and taking it twice a day. I take it for the irritability and moodiness that I get from perimenopause and found it works best for me to split my dosage. It will also take about 3 weeks, before it reaches its full efficacy level in your b...

best medication for menopause symptoms and anxiety
What medications would be best to take for anxiety, depression and menopause symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats ## Hello, Janice! How are you? Prozac, if your doctor feels that it is safe for you to take, is actually a wonder drug for everything you've listed. For about 3 weeks or so it tends to stir things up a bit, so you may feel worse, but then once your turn the corner and your body adjusts, there's usually a big improvement. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and weight loss. Is there anything else I can help with?

Bad Prozac Reaction
I took Prozac for mild depression for 5 days. On that 5th night I woke up having a terrible anxiety attack! Went to hospital, Dr said stop taking Prozac. So I did, had another bad attack 5 days later. It has been 24 days since i last took prozac and it's still affecting me, just not as badly. Get smaller anxiety attacks, depressed feelings, nervousness. Anyone else had this experience? How long until I feel back to myself and the drug is out of my system? I know it effects everyone differently. I just want my life back. ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? Like most other antidepressants, Prozac usually makes some symptoms worse for awhile, before it helps. However, many feel that is a good sign that it will help the person greatly, but this is not proven. I take it for Perimenopause symp...
