It can take up to three weeks for the side effects to diminish. Occasionally long term side effects occur, and they do not get better. If you are experiencing any of these side effects, talk to your doctor: bone fractures, suicidal feelings or tendencies, sexual dysfunction, or psoriasis
I took Prozac 20mg (generic name flouxitine) for several years with only minor effects for a week or two at the beginning. Within a month I was well established. It really helped my depression for several years. The doctor later changed my medications as they seldom do for other purposes.
