 1  anxiety NOS/ocd/mood disorder NOS Would not recommend this medication to my worst enemy. Not sure why it's even still legal. No real improvement on the meds. Worsened anxiety, worsened depression, worsened intrusive obsessive thoughts. Aggression, irritability, mood versatility, behavioral concerns, personality changes, drug-induced sudden suicidal ideation. Horrible withdrawal syndrome that lasts way longer than webMD/ the APA would allow you to believe. Withdrawal and ignorant psychiatrists nearly killed me. Caused PSSD, orthostatic hypotension, low sodium levels, emotional blunting, akathisia, painful withdrawal/dependency. F 20 6 years

 4  Depression Sexual side effects. Satisfied with this antidepressant after trying 8 others. Would rate about 4 stars. I am a same-day-responder for antidepressants and tend to have bouts of depression lasting 3-4 days and usually mid-weed. The half life of prozac is so long that 1 pill is about all I need to get through the week and be active again on the weekend. M 40 14 days

 3  Major depressive I've been on it for 2 years. Roughly. I tried stopping 2-3 times this year. Started at 30mg. Went to 10mg this year. I stopped it for 1 month...But the withdrawal symptoms were bad. My husband is unemployed. So, we're going through a bad time. I went back on it 1 week ago on 20mg now. I seem to wake a couple of times, with panic and tremors at night. What can it be? I hope it goes away with time. It's scary. Take it, when you need it. And Resume life. I pray the rosary. When I get bad side effects F 29 2 years

 1  Anxiety and Seasonal Depression Drug make my anxiety go up a little in the beginning. Gave me some diarrhea. It started to work on my 5th week but I started to feel weird pins and needles in my feet. I also notice every time I take Prozac the chest discomfort comes back and acid reflux is almost unbearable. I can't take something that causes your chest to feel that way. Trying something else. This is my second attempt with this medication however it works well and the panic attacks lessen but you feel kind of numb. F 43 2 months

 1  Anxiety and Depression Headaches, nausea, brain fog, suicidal thoughts, fatigue, fell asleep randomly, completely lost libido Made me attmept suicide and started having severe withdrawal effects the 3 times i tried to taper off it. The "upsides" of antidepressants, contrary to whatever your GP is trying to sell ya have been proven by scientists to be almost no better than placebo and should be used as a last resort if at all.

 1  Anxiety and depression -Emotional numbness -decreased sex drive Although this drug helped me when i started taking it for anxiety at age 14, i wasn't aware enough at the time to realize it was due to the overall emotional numbing effect. Spent high school feeling like this with little to no motivation to do anything in life and finally snapped out of it at age 20. Had no withdrawal symptoms im aware of even after 5 months off of it. I still feel like my personality hasnt come back yet. I wouldn't recommend taking it. M 20 6 years

PROZAC  (FLUOXETINE HYDROCHLORIDE):  Fluoxetine is used to treat depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, a certain eating disorder (bulimia), and a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). This medication may improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks. It may also reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions such as hand-washing, counting, and checking) that interfere with daily living. Fluoxetine may lessen premenstrual symptoms such as irritability, increased appetite, and depression. It may decrease binging and purging behaviors in bulimia.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
