Hey everyone. I recently began 10 mg of Prozac about three weeks ago, after stopping Wellbutrin XL after 6 months of use. I notice it first thing in the morning, and when I go to lay down at night before bed, I get sick to my stomach a little bit. I vaguely remember experiencing this with Lexapro and Zoloft, and wonder if it goes away? It seems to be making me calmer and giving me some better sleep at night as well. Is there anything I can do to help with the upset stomach issues for the time being?

"Very common (10% or more of users): Nausea (up to 29%)". It usually resolves after the first couple of weeks on the medication.
Here are some tips on managing side effects:
