I was asking these kind sharing people what they knew, concerning my issues of these spasms & starteling reflex. I do know there is nothing like some one who has been there. Doctors take an educated guess. But it's those of us who share our personal knowledge,that I have found to be the most helpful. Those doctors have left me walking into walls, with their meds, so I greatly fear those drugs. So Your input about this prozac , would be greatly appreciated.
Hello questing. I can give you some statistics via clinical trials, and these side effects are the common, normal ones. Bear in mind not everyone who takes Prozac will experience one two or any at all. It really does vary. The most common complaint is Insommnia, almost 33% of the people suffered from it. Nausea, almost 29%, then Headaches, almost 21%, a loss of Appetite, almost 17%, Shakiness, just under 13%, and Drowsiness, up to almost 16%. Sweating was mentioned almost up to 8% of the people had that as a common symptom, side effect. Decrease in sex drive was at 11%. Indigestion was 10 close to 10% There are several more but these are the more normal, common ones. Good luck on the Prozac, hope it works well for you, and good health and wishes,pledge
My understanding is that the spasms are likely the byproduct of ptsd. With this assumption or misunderstanding due to your profile, I will continue with the grounds established.
Prozac is currently considered to be the mildest and only ssri type antidepressant approved for use on children. As with all meds, otc as well as prescription, there are side effects. As mentioned previously it however has the lowest rate of side effects. The lists are actually as useful as are political stats, as if there was one person who took prozac during the trial phase and came down with the flu, nausea, fever, and body aches would have to be included on that list, even though the flu is totally irrelevant to the meds effects.
With that said, if you get a bad reaction from this med, I would be very leary of the ssri type meds.
I don't know about you, but ptsd is a pretty severe condition with the flash backs being more traumatic than a bad panic attack, one that bruises the chest. I have a strange feeling that it will help a bit, but not as much as what I would expect, although this is just a guess.
I have no idea if you've tried minipress, an alpha blocker that for many almost completely can put the flash backs to a stop. It is also very well tolerated with almost no patient reports of adverse effects.
Best of luck, I sincerely hope that this was of some help, and that you feel better asap!
