I am on day 21 of Prozac. I also take 90 mg. Cymbals, 300 mg lithium and clonazepam as needed. After starting the Prozac I am so exhausted I can hardly function. My doc wants me to up the Prozac to 40mg. I have had major depression most of my life. I feel I'm overestimated, and none of it is helping much anyway. Thoughts? Thank you.

Hello, Suzy! How are you?

Prozac has been known to cause that as a side effect, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight loss.

However, it should improve once you're on one steady dose for about 4 to 5 weeks and your body gets used to the medication.

Adding it to the other medications has likely increased its drowsy effect, as well.

What type of doctor are you seeing?
