ive been on 20 mg for about 2 months now was doing somewhat okay but now have alot of stress at work and i feel like i slipping backwards...irritable and aggitated more often again...i need to see my dr for a follow up this week, should i ask her for a increase in mg...i really dont want to try another drug cause prozac is the safest and dont want to feel like a zombie since i work in accting, but i think i need more mg since 20 mg was working for awhile....any suggestions will be helpful.... ## An increase in the dosage may be your best bet and it is usually something you can do temporarily, until the stress eases off and then go back down to your regular dosage. A dosage increase will probably also increase the side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, headache and weight gain. Read ... ...

I am a 25 year old female and it has worked great for me. My oldest son shows signs of possible ADHD and I know that anxiety and depression run in genes. We have waited to see how our son acts when he starts school this fall to see weather he may have to be treated. I agree with Jonnie in that it it better then ritalin. ...

what prozac looks like

white with green stripe on one side and an gray stripe on one side with the number GG550 on it ## What it may look like is a very open ended question, once a pill is available for generic manufacture, there are tons of companies that make them and each pill or capsule will look different, depending on what the company wants it too look like, even the imprint within a company will differ according to the dosage. Now, as to your capsule, (and thanks for providing the description and imprint, it makes it much easier to confirm for you!) this is indeed a generic for Prozac. Fluoxetine 20mgs. Here's an image to confirm: Pill Image Many people do not provide the imprint because they think all pills with the same ingredient look the same, but as I said, that is not the case, that is why I ... ...

What Does Generic Prozac Look Like

WHAT DOES A GENERIC prozac 20mg and a 10 mg look like. I want to find the green capusles ## As a generic, there are far too many on the market for me to be able to list all the possible markings and descriptions for you. There are even quite a lot if I just narrow it down to green, or ones that can be taken for being green.

New to Prozac

I just started taking Prozac 4 days ago. 10mg a day along with my lupus medications. I feel great and noticed a difference right a away.

I'm very glad that it's working for you. It can take 3 to 4 weeks for this medication to reach its full efficacy level in your body, so this is really just the start. Hopefully, the good effects continue. Are there any questions or concerns? ...

What Can I Take with Fluoxetine(Prozac)

I have been taking 60mg generic Prozac for about six months. These days I'm feeling like it's not quite controlling my depression. With my doctor's permission I tried raising the dose to 80mg and it caused me to sleep straight through the entire day. Does anyone know of another antidepressant that might work with prozac but not knock me out? Paxil was wonderful but stopped working after about 3 years as well as wellbutrin and zoloft......all taken by themselves. I would appreciate your suggestions, thank you. ## If you have successfully taken Paxil before and it stopped working, there is no reason you can't try it again, as long as there has been some time in between that you've been off of it. Learn more Prozac details here. Learn more Paxil details here. Sometimes ... ...

Prozac. Discontinuation

What happens when you stop taking Prozac. I have taken it for 35 years and currently take 40 mg a day. What is the best way to stop? ## Hello, Kate! How are you? It would best to speak to your doctor, so they can help you set up a slow tapering schedule. Prozac is an SSRI that has a relatively long half-life, so it's usually easier to stop that most of the others, but you may still experience some withdrawal effects, such as nausea, diarrhea, rebound depression, rebound anxiety, weight gain and vaginal bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Prozac Withdrawal & GI Issues

So I made the mistake of going from being on 40mg of prozac for a year to 0 mg cold turkey around Nov. 24. Withdrawal symptoms didn't kick in until about 3 weeks later when I had terrible diarrhea in the morning. Since then, I've had daily GI upsets including diarrhea, painful trapped wind at night, indigestion, abdominal cramps, etc. Along with this (or maybe caused by these symptoms) my anxiety has come back with a vengeance and I've had tons of crying spells and constant flu like symptoms. About 7 weeks through being off, I couldn't take it and went back to the doctor who prescribed me on 20mg of Prozac which i've been taking for 3 days now. I know it's relatively soon to tell any difference, but my GI upsets have been continuing and I read that withdrawal sym... ...

Prozac ruined me

Back in November of 2016 I made the decision to seek help in dealing with some depression and anger issues that I had been suffering with for a very long time. I called my health care provider (KP) and they had me talk to a general practice doctor, saying that I needed a referral in order to see anyone in their behavioral health department. I wasn't sure what a regular doctor was going to do for me, but I did as I was told. The day that I saw this person would end up being the beginning of some of the worst days of my adult life. This doctor listened to me for all of about 10 minutes and then prescribed Prozac for me. I had heard of it before, and was willing to try anything, so with little information on what I was getting myself into, I proceeded to follow Doctor's orders and ... ...

Prozac generics

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... ...

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... ...

What Is Trepiline

Have just been prescribed Trepiline for Lupus, I am already on prozac are they compatible ? ## Hi, Luppy! How are you? No, these two actually aren't considered compatible. They can both increase the level of Serotonin in your brain, which can lead to a very dangerous condition called Serotonin Syndrome, this condition even has the potential to be fatal. I'd really suggest double checking with your doctor, before adding the new medication. Adding additional complications isn't something you need to be risking. ...

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? You might want to try asking your doctor about making a slight adjustment, so you take a little le... ...

Prozac to viibryd

I have tried several anti-depressants and have yet to feel better. Started with Xanax years ago but only took it for a little while. Didn't take anything for 20 years. Now within the last two years I have tried Effexor, prozac, welbutrin and now viibryd. Only been on it for 3 weeks and still feel crappy. Mood is ok but so fatigued that I about can't go. I had an episode 9/13 where I became unresponsive and then was just in and out. I felt drugged and numb. Had weened off prozac and started viibryd. After spending 4 hrs in ER and having blood and urine evaluated and X-rays the dr said he thinks it may have been a reaction because of prozac was still in system. I actually thought I was going to die. I really don't believe the way I feel has anything to do with medication. Oh w... ...

getting off pristiq with prozac

As a GAD and panic disorder with agoraphobia sufferer for over 10 years, I am no stranger to meds. I have been on Pristiq, however, for about 3 years, and have finally decided it`s time for a change. This medication really did nothing to help me with my illness`, but due to the horrifying withdraw process (which you can start to feel if you miss a dose by ever a few hours), I`ve stuck with it. My doc has decided to put me on prozac to help with the withdraw symptoms of pristiq. Has anyone tried this with any success? I start the whole process in 6 days and I`m completely freaking out. ## Is he having you taper the Pristiq? That's usually the best way to get off of these types of meds, a slow taper down on the one being stopped and titrating up on the new one. Learn more Prozac detai... ...
