Hello everyone, I just started Prozac Fluoxetine 10mg and feeling weird the first couple of days. I really gave this a try because my depression and anxiety was happening every month due to having PMDD. I need relief, but get discouraged when I start feeling off. Is it normal to feel down and have anxious feelings more than usual when you first start?
Fluoxetine - First time taking Prozac 10mg for depression?

I was on Prozac for about 2 years, very good med for me as everyone reacts differently to medications, so having that in mind the time for you to feel off or feel better may vary a bit, and yes it is normal to feel off the first week as your organism is adapting to the antidepressant. You will most likely start feeling better by week 2/3 and for this medication to reach it's full therapeutic benefits/effect is between 4 to 6 weeks, so be patient, you will get there.
All the best, masso
