I started taking it one week ago, 10mg a day. I feel sick after I take it and I feel rly puffy everyday. I hope this will pass.

The side effects usually do pass within the first couple of weeks, so hang in there. It may take upwards of a month to feel the full benefit of this medication. Gonna have to be patient.

Hello Callmearon. Just wanted to add on to what Laurie has already mentioned. I answered a question such as yours just the other day. No, prozac is not known as a drug where weight is gain is an issue. I hope you find it a comfortable drug to be on, and that it works well for you. Very best to you,
