Hello. Insomnia is considered a common and normal side effect to taking Prozac. In clinical trials/studies up to 33% of users reported insomnia as a side effect. regards pledge
When did you take it. You should take it in the am.
I always took prozac in the morning due to it causing insomnia.
I always had to take it in the morning as well. I already suffer from insomnia so my doctor told me to take it in the morning. Try this and see if it helps. I wish you all the best.
Once I got used to it I take it at night. But I did start in the morning. About the third month I switched to night and no problem at all. Be sure your doctor knows he may have some additional help for you.
You should probably take it at morning when you first get up. That will help with insomnia. Your side affects should subside in a few days.
