I have been on Fluoxetine for ~4 months. I have been going to the chiropracture for severe elbow and wrist pain in both arms. I have eliminated all work that could be over working these joints but the pain is to the point I can not pick up an empty glass without pain. My chiropracture questioned what medications I am on. I am on Fluoxetine 20 mg & Triam/Hctz 37.5/25 daily. Could the Flluoxetine be causing these symptoms? The symptoms developed shortly after I started taking Fluoxetine.
Oh yes it can cause wrist pain, I've just gone off of it due to joint pain myself.
There is a man on this site named maso4169 and he just posted all the side effects of fluoxetine, that is where I got my info.
You may want to enter his (go to "friends" at the top of the page and scroll down, enter his username) and you may be able to find a full list of fluox side effects.
If not, go to "drugs A to Z" and put fluoxetine in the search engine, it will show all of the side effects as well... on our site here.
Best wishes to you,
