Prozac and Glaucoma

I have been on Prozac for the last 25 + years and now I have glaucoma. Is it possible that the Prozac caused it? ## Glaucoma has been known to be a rare side effect of Prozac, but there's no way to be certain if it actually caused yours. The FDA lists other side effects as possibly including anorexia, memory impairment, dry mouth, and headache. Does your doctor think there may be a connection?

prozac made me super angry

I was on Prozac to treat depression for about 10 months. The first weeks I felt euphoric. It seemed like all the problems magically disappeared and life was amazing again. I met somebody and we started dating. Then a few month later, I found myself getting angry with everything and everyone for little things, things that normally would make me shrug. Then the aggression (not physical by any means) started affecting my relationship. But still, I could not figure out what it was. I thought - back then - then there was nothing wrong with me and I had the reasons to act to certain situations the was I did. My relationship ended. I was not happy but I was not super upset either, although I knew that he was mr right. I went on a long vacation and the very first day I flushed all the remaining...

Prozac medication

I'm not sure if doctor's read this website but until they realize that these drug manufacturers can't be trusted, they will not be able to help their patients. My mom who has Alzheimer's is able to react to changes in different brands of the same meds she's been on. Her caregivers notice and let us know. It's a real shame that the FDA allows such a drastic range in what they are able to put into these generic drugs. Shame, shame on them. We need to protect ourselves against the generic drugs sitting right in our local drug stores. You don't need to be on street drugs to be harmed by bad drugs, they are right at your local pharmacies. Don't let your pharmacist lie to you, they're in it for the money. ## Did anyone experience Seizures on Prozac? My daug...

Prozac for psychiatric disorders

I have a psychotic disorder, personality disorder, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder. I also have an anti-social disorder and polysubstance abuse disorder. What medication can they give me to help with all of this? Can Prozac help? ## Prozac contains the active ingredient Fluoxetine, it is an SSRI antidepressant that is also used to treat anxiety, and some other mental health disorders. That said, there is no way to know how much it will help you, other than trying it. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, weight changes, dry mouth, headache, and mood changes. Usually, when someone suffers from multiple issues, more than one medication is required. What options has your doctor suggested?

Prozac and ms contin

Hi all! Just wondering if anyone has been prescribed both an SSRI (Prozac) plus pain management such as MS Contin with breakthrough percocet? My husband needs something for depression but I didn't know if it would be safe to take (they tried him on zoloft and it caused him to have horrible back pain). Thanks for any experiences!! ## There is a possible interaction, you can read about it on the University of Chicago Medicine site. They warn about the risk of Serotonin syndrome. It isn't that they cannot be taken together, but a doctor should be closely monitoring the person if they care combined. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you!! I've read the studies and of course a doctor is prescribing but they don't know everything (I've been a registered nurs...

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 deci...

withdrawal symptoms of nuzak and urbanol

My psychiatrist put me 20mg of prozac first whilst in hospital then went to nuzak 20mg and 40mg urbanol. 10 breakfast n lunch n 20 dinnertime. I became like a zombie. I wss just slightky stressed with issues. And no family support as I livr away.i suddenly stop since ths was making hv no emotion no feeling. Fely good at first not worrying. But God doesn't create us to have no feelings. He wants us to go thru good n bad n feel everything. N just pray n go to the Lord Jesus Christ. He didnt open the red sea for nothing. If he can save hes people in doin that then surely our problems can be sorted. Be obedient n loyal to God and ask for his help hes waiting for you. Trust me I did. Im of the meds now about 14 days. I had terrible withdrawal. Slurred speech, forgetful, slow talk...

prozac has ruined my life

I have been on prozac for the last two and a half years and it has ruined my life. Since taking prozac I have lost my job, my home, my friends and family and almost my children. I also dropped out of uni. ## you need to be more specific... i was on zoloft for twelve years and one day it just flipped on me and I had severe depression to where I couldn't even get out of bed i just wanted to throw the sheets over my head and not move... since then I changed to prosac and it has been a miracle drug for me... i work, i have a three year old i am very productive in society... so everybody's different maybe you should try a more recently made anti-depressant... perhaps prozac is not for you. Also check into ambilify... I cant take it i had a severe reaction to it... but some people say...

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...

What to take for menopause?>

What do you think is the best over the counter medicine or vitamins that don't distroy your liver? Do you think seeing a Doctor & getting medicine? I was hoping to avoid medicine at all. I'm really not having a hard time. I would like to get a good night's sleep. It seems to get bad at night time. Thank you ## I am in perimenopause, and I take a low dose of Prozac/Fluoxetine to help with the symptoms. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight loss. I tried some over the counter products, such as multivitamins, black cohosh, resveratrol, and natural progesterone supplements derived from yams, but I never had any luck with them. So there are other options available that are safer for your liver, and d...
