I took prozac for many years and never had a problem, I took it in the morning because it amy cause insomnia (I suffer from insomnia), but you must take as prescribed by your doctor.

Porzac may lower your blood sugar levels. The amount of insulin or oral antidiabetic medicine that you need to take may change--- hypogglycemia (low blood sugar)-.

Take care.-
