weight gain with nuzak

I have being taking Nuzak for about 3 weeks now. I have not experienced any severe side effects. I am sleeping better and not feeling like I can't cope with everything. However, I have put on about 3kgs even though I have cut down on my carb intake, Is weight gain a side effect of Nazuk. ## No, that is not a typical side effect of Fluoxetine, that active ingredient in Nuzak, according to NIH reports. It is most commonly known to maintain weight, or to cause weight loss, well as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and dry mouth. You said you have cut down your carbs, but they are not always the cause of weight gain. What types of foods do you usually eat? Are you on any other medications? Do you partake in a low fat diet?

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight loss. Bear are you sure it's a Q, could it have been a G?

Blue A106 Fluoxetine?

This is the first time Costco mail order pharmacy has sent me these pills, the previous ones I have been taking for five years were also a generic but I do not remember their color but think they were two colors, one color was white and I believe the other was green. Ever since I started taking the blue pills, my FBSS pains in my legs have greatly increased. I took the fluoxetine primarily for relief from these pains, along with 150 mg Lyrica, 2mg clonoxepam, 50mg prestiq, 25mg amitriptyline, and 50mg lamotrigine daily. Is it possible that these new blue pills, which I understand are made in India by Alembic, are sufficiently different than the previous generic Fluoxetine to cause this increase in pain. Please help, the pain has been terrible since making this change. Thank you. ## The ...

blue Fluoxetine causes heartburn

Recently my pharmacy began giving me a new version of fluoxetine, which I have taken for MANY years with no problems.... however the blue fluoxetine gives me horrible heart burn. I use to take them at night before bed, but couldn't sleep, so decided to start taking them in the morning and still get the heartburn. I don't take them with any other meds. I tried an empty stomach, and after eating, but the results are still the same. I also get a bad headache (I think from the heartburn.) Has anyone figured out how to avoid this problem? ## Hi Jen, I truly believe that the root cause of this specific heartburn side effect lies within the "inactive" ingredients found in the blue Fluoxetine pill. Reason I say that is because, when you switch brand names or manufacturers, the d...

Northstar RX LLC Toll Free: 1-800-206-7821 ## I, too, received the Northstar fluoxetine and have been taking it for 8 days and was wondering what was wrong with me.

Alembic Fluoxetine Make Me Sick

I've been taking a generic green & white capsule of 20 mg Prozac (fluoxetine) for a few years. My pharmacy gave me blue capsules mfg by alembic this time & I am feeling so sick for 4 days now. I thought I had a stomach bug, but I've never had a bug linger this long. I had diarrhea & vomiting on day 2 & 3, jittery sleep, then deep bouts of sleep, bad headache, night sweats & nightmares. ## Ditto! I almost puked this am, and have been sick all day. Had major side effects after my pharmacy switched me to blue caps. Was taking Sandoz white and green for years with no problem. I called my pharmacy and requested alternative as I can’t barf every day ## I recently got a refill and my pharmacy switched to Alembic generic (dark blue capsules). I took it only abo...

Broke open fluoxetine

I decided to break open my 40mg capsule and swallow it. BAD IDEA. It burned my throat like no tomorrow and made my whole head numb....Gross tasting and made me vomit. Whoever might think this a good idea... Just don't do it! Oh and it made me feel like I was choking to death also....Great...Worse than the anxiety I already had. Perfect... ## It is to prevent such effects, that they are made into a capsule form. Many medications will do odd things if you ingest them improperly, that is why tablets and capsules were invented. And yes, most of them also taste disgusting. Thanks for posting the warning for others! Are you feeling better, now? ## Whoever has to take fluoxetine make sure they drink lot's of water with it .I had just finished a night shift and took my capsule with mayb...

fluoxetine 40mg pill description

What does that pill look like? Can you describe the capsule that's manufactured by Sandoz? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? What are the markings on it? That is the information that would enable me to check the contents for you. Can you please post back and clarify? The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, weight loss, and dry mouth. ## CHECK THIS OUT: I thought the problem (The cause of severe reflux and HEARTBURN) was the 40mg Fluoxetine (generic Prozac) in the blue capsule, but I also have 40 mg Fluoxetine in a WHITE capsule with 2 orange circular stripes (Sandoz GG 540). Since I wouldn't dare take all 40 mg, I emptied the capsule, replaced half the med (20 mg) into the capsule, and took the loose powder (20 mg) with...
