Stopping fluoxetine
2 Replies RSS
Hi there, i started fluoxetine 3days ago but am already feeling side effects and want to stop. Will the withdrawals still occur even after only taking them for 3days? I was prescribed 20mg for post natal depression and anxiety. I dont think i want to be on then as want to try and perservere with brwast feeding which ive been told i have to stop as soon as im on them. I dont know what to do. ## In 2002 I didn't think i'd be able to breastfed because I took SSRI. However, a major Chicago pediatric practice said it was fine to nurse and take Zoloft, so I did, to give baby a good start. Supplemented with 2 bottles Enfamil a day, just in case. Also reduced Zoloft to 100mg instead of 150mg. on my own initiative, enough to get by, I thought. Had post partum depression, and later terrib...

Prozac and weight gain
2 Replies RSS
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? ## Don't drink with it. I did and my hubby said that I have a split personality when I do. But when I don't drink...It's the best meds I've ever taken. It really works. Just please don't drink when you tak...

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 and Past Amphetamine Use associated with ADHD
Post a Reply
Okay I had ADHD as a child and was prescribed Dextroamphetamine 5mg I would take 3 pills in the morning and 2 in the Afternoon. Followed by Catapress to sleep in the evening. Leading up into early adult hood I was still using and become addicted to Dextroamphetamine. Years of Abuse of this Drug resulted in Depression and Drug induced psychosis. I believe the use of this drug damage receptors in the brain. I do not take amphetamine anymore but I have been prescribed prozac I have been taking 20mg daily now for 4 months and my depression is near non existent. I can only take prozac in the morning as it gives me a very large energy boost, if I was too take it at night I would not sleep. If I become burnt out or unable to relax I am given a short term dose of Tamaze to use when needed only on

Prozac having bad side effects
7 Replies RSS
I started Prozac about 4 weeks ago. I had started having really bad panic attacks and bad anxiety so I went to the doctors and he put me on this. Since I've been taking this medicine it has helped with the attacks but it's made me feel so weird and like I'm not alive. My body knows what it's doing but my mind isn't all there. I forget tasks very easily and start to forget stuff sometimes. My mind is constantly in a battle with itself. I just always ask myself, is this ever going to end? Is this going to get better? I don't know what else to do. Can someone please tell me if this is going to stop? Sometimes I just go to sleep early at night hoping things will be better in the morning but nothing ever changes. I don't have thoughts of suicide at all but I just ...

Extreme Mood Swings on Prozac
6 Replies RSS
Hi everyone, I developed anxiety attacks 2 weeks ago due to a relationship problem. I tried to solve too many problems at once associated with the split and couldn't sleep for a long time resulting in my current condition. I'm 37 and never experienced anything like this. It scared me so much that I started having delusions and slight hallucinations and it wouldn't stop. I had horrible thoughts because I believed that I had become insane. I found a great doctor who spent an hour with me and suggested I commence a government initiative called a mental health care plan involving 10 free psychologist visits per year. He prescribed me Prozac 20 mg and Seroquel. The 2nd night I felt so content, calm and happy which continued into the next day after a great sleep. (This included a ...

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?

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 generics
1 Reply RSS
Hi everyone, I am taking Prozac generics and wondering about preferences in manufacturers. I believe the 20mg of Activist is not performing very well. My pdoctor has increased to 30mg by taking 3 10mg and would like to get a reputable manufacturer. Also would like to know about experience from people who were given Latuda to use with it. He gave me a sample pack but have been afraid to take it. ## I currently take the capsule manufactured by Aurobindo Pharmaceuticals for perimenopause symptoms, which include anxiety, and it works very well for me. I take 20mgs in the morning and 10mgs at night. I can't say how well it will work for you, though, since we are all different. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry...

Prozac or methadone?
1 Reply RSS
Hi, My name is Cynthia. And 3 weeks ago my doctor started me on Fluoxetine (prozac) and then 4 days I started taking methadone for my headaches and recently between the two I started itching badly, so I was wondering if It was the prozac or methadone? I looked up the side effects for prozac and one of them are itching, but so is One of the effects to the methadone! And it is my whole body not just one spot! Help me! Please/thank you so much ## Kittykat96, Although Prozac can cause localized itching methadone is notorious for causing full body itching that can become relentless. Methadone is a synthetic narcotic opiod and like traditional opiates it shares that propensity to cause itching. Contact your prescriber he may be able to adjust or eliminate one or the other .

Prozac Tweens Side Effects

Any info on side effects for a younger person (age 12) who was just prescribed Prozac for depression, after a depression diagnosis and attempted suicide? ## Hello, Diana! How are you? While the side effects would be the same at that age, as they would be for an adult taking it, they may be slightly more intense. The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, trouble sleeping, vivid dreaming, weight loss and dry mouth. I am on it for perimenopause symptoms and I've found that generally, the side effects intensify for a few days around week 3, then suddenly improve and go away, after that. How is the child doing on it? ## Has been a week today and so far no symptoms other than lesser appetite after taking meds in the am. Seems to help with anxiety yet still seei...

Cough suppressed from Fluoxetine?
1 Reply RSS
I know this might sound strange but did anyone experience that their cough was reduced after taking prozac? I have had a cough since march (dr. said acid reflux and quitting smoking) but since on the prozac it has not been as frequent. Is this a possible side effect? ## No, that is not typical, the FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. It is probably more likely just things slowly improving, overall, that typically occurs as time passes, the quit smoking cough usually improves very gradually. Are you on any other medications?

Prozac Side Effect Questions
1 Reply RSS
HI everyone! this is my first post on the forum, but I have been taking Prozac for anxiety about a month and a half now, but before this I was on Zoloft. The zoloft made me feel very depressed (I hadn't even known what depression felt like before the zoloft) and just down about life, so I decided to talk to my doctor and switch medications. The zoloft also cause diarrhea, but these side effects ceased to exist once I was off the zoloft and on prozac. Now while on prozac, I'm not sure if it has helped my anxiety that much, but I just feel at an easier state of mind. Some of the side effects I experience include occasional diarrhea (not was often as while on zoloft), a decrease in appetite, and sometimes I'm just very jittery and wired. I also noticed while taking both zoloft ...
